Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Club3D royalKing Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "custom backplate", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 850MHz to 1050MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1100MHz.
There are no benchmarks available but we predict 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card should surpass a GeForce GTX 770 easily.
