Radeon R9 290X MSI Lightning Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 290X MSI Lightning Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 290X.
This edition comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit which was increased from 1000MHz to 1080MHz. The memory clock was left untouched. Furthermore, the card comes with a custom double fan solution which will reduce its temperature under load.
There are no benchmarks available but expect, at most, a 4% performance boost over the reference card.
