I am attempting to upgrade to this gpu, yet on my AsRock Fatal1ty 970 mobo, with an fx 8350 OC'd to 5.2ghz it gets seriously slowed down on games.


I got 75fps on CineBench with it, and my GTX 660ti got 107Fps
Any suggestions since most my specifications are listed in my rigs specifications

970, about 25% faster…the only thing his GPU has over the 970 is the 8GB of VRAM, but 4GB of Vram is more than enough for 1080p

Currently, I think the 390 is better. Due to the higher support it has got for the DX12, supporting Async Compute, that causes Nvidia suffer performance drops.
