The new AMD R9 390 is the direct successor to the R9 290. Both cards share the same GPU but the R9 390 is factory overclocked. The R9 390 has a 5% higher stock GPU clock, and a substantial stock memory clock increase of 20%. Additionally the R9 390 sports a minimum of 8GB of VRAM versus 4GB on the R9 290. At the current price levels of $329, the R9 390 can't compete given that R9 290s can be had for around $260. The increased VRAM will rarely help even at ultra high resolutions and in any case, most 4K gamers are likely to seek more GPU power than the R9 390 has to offer. We have seen several samples of the R9 390 and they scored an effective speed of 88.5% which, as expected, matches the speeds seen on overclocked R9 290s. On the face of it purchasing an R9 290 at a discount and then manually overclocking will result in the same performance as an R9 390 but with a saving of around $70. [Jun '15 GPUPro]

The RX 470 is the second Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year. The 470 follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful (though still mostly unavailable) RX 480. Based on specs the RX 470 has approximately 10% less processing horsepower than the RX 480. Looking at provisional average benchmarks (we only three samples of the RX 470 at this time) of the RX 480 and RX 470 shows that the performance gap is just a few percent. This performance gap will likely widen as we get a more representative number of samples of the RX 470 but the fact that custom design 470s are already available will likely keep the gap between the 480 less than 10%, at least until custom 480s make it to market. The list prices of both the 4GB RX 480 and RX 470 cards are within 20 USD of each other so AMD have basically re-released the 480 at a slightly reduced price with slightly reduced specs, strange but true! [Aug '16 GPUPro]
