Average Bench: 70.9% (20th of 548)

Based on 8,368 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 67B0 Models: AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390X, ASUS R9 390X, AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390, AMD Radeon R9 300

The AMD R9 390X is a rebadged power hungry (350W+) 290X. The 390X has a slightly increased GPU clock speed, a significantly increased memory speed and a higher minimum VRAM of 8GB but it shares the same core GPU hardware. Looking at the overclocked performance differences between the older 290X and the 390X shows that the two cards are approximately the same, which comes as no surprise considering that the 390X is actually just a factory overclocked 290X. Smart shoppers obviously won't be happy to pay AMD a premium of around $100 simply for overclocking a two year old 290X. That said the 390X does offer stellar performance, particularly at 4K resolutions and if prices drop significantly it could become a strong contender. We only have one MSI sample benchmark for the 390X so far so we will revisit this GPU when we have a better sample of all the available cards. [Jun '15 GPUPro]


Good average bench

The AMD R9 390X averaged 29.0% lower than the peak scores attained by the group leaders. This isn't a great result which indicates that there are much faster alternatives on the comparison list.

very good card


Went from a 280x to a 390x, this is an excellent card, got a good deal so got it for just under £300.Would have to spend £70-100+ for only a few FPS more for the nearest competing card (AMD or NVidia). Awesome! Shop around and pick up an awesome bargain.—Sep '15

One of the best single GPU's, if you cannot afford a GTX 980 Ti I believe this or a sale R9 290X is one of the only options to make as the Fury X seems to be overpriced which should make the R9 Fury (non-X) a better option over the R9 390x.—Jul '15

I have an MSI 390X in my system and it functions very well. It struggles a bit with multiple monitors but only under heavy loads.

Team Red~! WhooO! Red Knights, FOR HONOR AND GLORY! It's a pretty decent card. Only complaints are the power consumption and heat output.

Nearly the same performance as gtx 980 for about $250 NZD less, this card was a no brainer for me.
