MSI R9 390X Gaming 8G Review

Introduction

Whenever a new graphics card is due there is always a buzz around the OC3D offices, and indeed around our forums too. The R9 390X sits in that slightly curious spot where it's not quite the card we were hoping for, so everyone is kinda interested but actually waiting for the main event of the Fury X.

Consider the R9 390X like a preseason friendly. A halfway house between where we've come from and where we're going.

That isn't to say that the R9 390X hasn't got a lot going for it. It might be considered a re-brand of an already existing card, but even minor evolutions can bring performance improvements and aren't we all in the business of seeking improvement? Of course we are.

So sit down and join us in discovering where the MSI R9 390X Gaming 8G matches up against the R9 290X, and indeed whether the pricing - which would place it against a theoretical GTX975 - matches the performance capabilities.

Technical Specifications

There is no doubt that MSI always push the limits of a graphics card, particularly when it comes to their Gaming range. The R9 390X comes with a custom PCB and the new Twin Frozr V, helping to rein in the Radeon temperatures. Match that up to a speedy 1100MHz GPU clock speed and a massive 8GB of GDDR5 and the specifications impress.

Lots of praise about performance vs price. However, the usual spot where the price is normally mentioned (top of page) is empty.Quote
