Average Bench: 56.4% (51st of 622)

Based on 16,604 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]

If you can find one under $100 Usd or so, It's a good deal as it performs like the gtx 1060 6GB

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

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

Not a terribly bad GPU, but it's just about maxed out here. Even so, it compares well with the RX 580 and GTX 1060-6GB (and GTX 980). Plus, every R9 390 and 390X has 8GB of VRAM, which is nice (you can never have too much VRAM buffer).

Been using this card since 2015. The fact that it's neck and neck against today's GTX 1060 6GB, and a rebrand of a 2013 architecture, this GPU kicks major ass! I'll probably be using this card for a few more years until I'll have to upgrade.

Got the Power Color Devil version when it first released, and was blessed by the silicone gods. Hit the silicone lottery, and almost 3 years after purchase, was able to pull world high benchmark for this card. http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/7774099
