PowerColor PCS+ R9 390 8GB Reviewed

Recommended Posts

hopefully we'll see some improvement with driver updates but personally I'm looking forward to the price drop of 980 / 980 ti. the 980 is the card I wanted to upgrade to but could not justify the price b-stock had them for 369 I was tempted but the lack have a decent warranty turn me away

It's too bad the core is just a renamed Hawaii, I was hoping for a bit more than that!  Oh well, here's to hoping Fiji will actually ship with HDMI 2.0 and it's all been a ruse...

Nice review Frank,.. I like the Red & Black theme PowerColor wen't with on this card,..

 

looks like the Fiji will have three DP 1.2a ports and one HDMI 1.4a port.

 

no clue why AMD did not go with HDMI 2.0 for 60Hz 4K  :wacko:

Good review Frank, but to be honest I'm not impressed with the card, is Amd  just going to keep renaming  their old cards and calling them new because they add more memory, tired of this rebrand crap !

This is false refer to my post from the 380 review to see why I say that.

one thing I have to say.. CONS: rebrand? What about the GTX 770? No Cons, that's also a rebrand. What makes the 390x any different than the GTX  680 to GTX 770 rebrand? Other than that I did like this review it actually included the 780ti which is hard to see in comparsion on other review sites when the GTX 980 came out.. The GTX 780ti disappeared becuase of Nvidia marketing during the push to get everyone to buy that amazingly fast gtx 980 since it so much faster than a GTX 780ti;)

Nice catch. I would have kept the same cons throughout the reviews. Edited (thought we were talking about the R9 285 for a second, oops).

It's vary confusing trying to keep track of AMD's renaming, rebranding, and refreshing,.. you can match almost all the 300 series device ids to pre-existing GPU's,.. scroll through Catalyst 15.3 Beta drivers.

The gtx 770 had a superior memory over the gtx 680, so it is not technically a rebrand.

Look both companies are guilty of this at one time or another. You can point to it each and every time and you know it still does not change the fact that it happened. R&D costs money to build new products. Enhancing one takes less money and buys time.
