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]

The GTX 1080 is Nvidia’s new flagship graphics card. It features the new 16 nm (down from 28 nm) Pascal architecture. This is the first die shrink since the release of the GTX 680 at which time the manufacturing process shrunk from 40 nm down to 28 nm. In terms of typical 3D gaming performance the 1080 is around 30% faster than the GTX 980 Ti and it manages to deliver the additional performance with a TDP of just 180 Watts which is 70 Watts less than the 980 Ti. The new Pascal architecture delivers a satisfying jump in performance over Maxwell and the GTX 1080 is now the fastest single GPU available. Over the coming months older generation cards will likely see significant price drops as the better value for money 1070, 1060 and 1050 cards slowly replace their predecessors. [May '16 GPUPro]
