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 480 is the first graphics card to feature AMD’s new 14nm Polaris architecture. The card is due for release on June 29 (in four days time). We don’t have all the details yet but the RX 480 is rumoured to have an MSRP of $199 and it will likely perform on a par with the Nvidia GTX 970. At present we only have one benchmark so although the performance figures are provisional the RX 480 and GTX 970 do appear to be closely matched. If further tests validate these results and the cards retail at the MSRP of $199, then the new RX 480 will effectively improve graphics card price/performance ratios by a whopping 23%, something that has not happened since the release of the Maxwell based Nvidia GTX 970 nearly two years ago. In addition better price/performance for the current generation of games, the RX 480 also offers relatively strong DX12 support which provides better future proofing than Nvida’s Maxwell (970/980/980 Ti) cards. [Jun '16 GPUPro]
