XFX R9 390X Black Edition Review
XFX cards have been a bit like buses in the OC3D offices. We waited years for one to appear and then two arrive in quick succession.
Following on the heels of the R9 290X 8GB card we have their top of the line R9 390X, the Black Edition. Invoking such a moniker always causes us to raise an eyebrow. You need a certain level of chutzpah to name it thusly, particularly in the light of things like the AMG Mercedes or ASUS Rampage motherboards.
Suffice it to say that we couldn't wait to open up the gaudy packaging and discover whether the bods at XFX have managed to bring enough to the party to leave us nodding sagely at the appellation.
As befits a Black Edition card the XFX comes with a 1090MHz speed on the GPU Core out of the box. The perfect choice if you're one of those people who enjoys sticking their card in and getting on and gaming.
