Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1040MHz, instead of 1000MHz.
Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 8GB: which only proves to be useful when gaming at 3K or more.
The reference AMD Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Twin Frozr IV Double Fan Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.
Benchmarks indicate a 12% performance over the reference Radeon R9 290X 4GB.
