Heaven performance is strong on our HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB. While we do see the heavily overclocked MSI GTX 780 6GB win out at both resolutions, it's not a huge surprise due to the heavy tessellation, a technology that has always favored NVIDIA offerings.

PSO 2 performance is really strong, and the HIS R9 290X lines up with our MSI GTX 680 6GB here. This game has always benefited from overclocking, and you can see we have a really nice increase in performance from our HIS R9 290X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB over the reference R9 290X 4GB.
