    390X coming soon few weeks

    [H] review out now. 390x slower than 980 by a bit. More importantly, buy a 290x over either card at current prices. Clock vs clock it performs the same as a 390x (to be expected, but now confirmed.) Small amount of extra O/C headroom probably on the 390x but not worth ~30% extra coin.

    MSI R9 390X GAMING 8G Video Card Review @ [H]

    To Brent and Kyle: Genius inclusion of the clock vs clock apples v apples. Much appreciated. This is exactly what I was looking for in a review from this rebranding exercise and tbh I didn't think I would get it anywhere. I will now look for good deals on 290 series cards and snap them up. Best...

    390X coming soon few weeks

    Yeah but forgetting old reviews of a different card (290x.) Have a look at the benchmarks in the current reviews of the 390x, you might be a little bit surprised. I was. Not saying the 390x is outright faster over all (it's not.) But it is genuinely a close contest and not a case of "equal in...

    390X Reviews/Benchmarks Thread

    To put it another way, the performance of the 980 is equally inconsistent. In some games it is slower than a 390x which in turn is slower than a 970 in other games. But really this has always been the case. Some games will run better on nvidia than AMD and vice versa.

    Fury X, R9 390X or Gtx 980 ti for 4k gaming?

    I agree. I would love to see a 290x put through its paces with the most recent drivers that these 390x reviews have. I mean I am shocked at how well it (390x) performs vs 980. If the 290xs perform the same now... Well there will be some great value to be had at sales or 2nd hand. I really want...

    AMD Fury series coming soon.

    What are you talking about? The live stream from AMD told us there are 4 models: Dual GPU Fuji Fury X - 4096 sp, Watercooled Fury - ?? sp Aircooled (they didn't actually say whether it was the full 4096sp or not) many are assuming it is, but they didn't explicitly say. Fury Nano - ?? sp...

    GTX980Ti or GTX980 SLI ?

    He forgot a step: 1) sell g sync monitor 2) buy fury 3) buy free sync Nah really though... OP, it depends what games you want to play, what fps you want to play them at and what settings you want to play at. If the 980ti can get you close to what you want, then I'd go the single card for...

    AMD Fury series coming soon.

    Excellent in games that it works. Not sure on how many titles haven't received crossfire support in a timely manner recently, though.

    AMD Fury series coming soon.

    No, not bingo. If the card runs out of RAM then the speed of said RAM doesn't matter as that's not where the data is being retrieved from. However, it is true that we can't judge this until cards are in independent hands and have gone through proper testing. Who know's. AMD might have some...

    AMD Fury series coming soon.

    All it shows is that 4gb is fine for firestrike at 4k. It does not and can not show that 4gb is fine for any game out now, or to come in the future at 4k. Maybe it will be, maybe it won't. It doesn't concern me too much as like most people I am well below 4k. Don't extrapolate from canned...
