You can see straight away the overclock gives us a nice boost in performance with the Performance score breaking the 10k mark. This really puts us quite close to the R9 280X and GTX 770. It's also a strong boost over the reference clock card.

 

You can see when we move to the Extreme preset though, it's not nearly as close to the R9 280X and GTX 770.
