XFX R9 290X 8GB DD Review

XFX R9 390X Pictured

 

XFX's R9 390X has been pictured, confirming it has 8GB of DDR5 memory. Right now it looks nigh identical to their R9 290X, supporting the recent rumors that this GPU will be a rebrand that is more or less identical to their 8GB R9 290X that we reviewed a few weeks ago

As we can see from the pictures above XFX's R9 390X will have the same cooler as their R9 290X, with some minor Aesthetic tweaks. It also looks like it will feature a full cover backplate. 

Right now we do not know what clock speeds their R9 390X will be running at, but it is expected to be higher than the reference R9 290X which ran with a core speed of 1000MHz and a Memory speed of 1250MHz (5GHz effective), if it is in fact a rebranded R9 290X.

Right now it looks like the R9 390X will be a rebranded R9 290X, but until AMD confirms this we should consider this no more than a rumour. Perhaps AMD has made a R9 290X esque core with GCN 1.2 (Tonga Silicon), like the R9 285 was for the R9 280, but this is unlikely. 

The radeon R9 300 series is expected to be announced on June 16th, but until then we will deliver you the most up to date GPU news here at OC3D.
