Radeon R9 390 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 390 is a High-End Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Grenada PRO which has 60 Compute Units activated and thus offers 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 512-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1500MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 750W PSU with one available 6-pin and one available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon R9 390 8GB competes with GeForce GTX 970 and is essentially a Higher Clocked Radeon R9 290 with the addition of twice as much video memory (8GB against 4GB).
It proves to be slower than GeForce GTX 970 at resolutions up to 1920x1080 but takes the lead beyond that.
However, the lack of DirectX 12.1 Support paired with the enormous Power Consumption (almost twice as much as GeForce GTX 970) and the Gimmicked 8GB Frame Buffer, makes it an extremely uncompetitive product.


System Suggestions
Radeon R9 390 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

If you are going for a 1080p res. go for a 970, but if you are going to take a 1440p or 4k monitor get a 390.

I got this card and performance wise is awesome. I got a question; what is the temperature limit for this card? I was just wondering this so I can keep eye on.

I'm assuming that it will have the same temperature limit of the R9 290/290X considering they're pretty similar, so 95C, but it would probably be preferred to keep it under 85C.

Thanks, that is damn high. so far I have never gone above 55C (even after 5 hours playing games like GTA and Fallout 4) and idle is usually at 30C for me :)

Wow… that's extremely good. I'll hit maybe 76C- in things like Witcher 3 or BF4.
