No.

Good deal.

great price!!!

Im holding out for the Sapphire R9 390x Nitro tho! :-D

rev6

No.Good deal.


Shame but yes, a good deal itself

rev6

No.Good deal.


Well, if this box shifter has got the correct name, this is water-cooled hybrid as PowerColor only do two 390X and the Devil is the hybrid:
powercolor.com/Glo…asp?

The SKU 'AXR9 390X 8GBD5-ADHE' on It-Supplier matcheds too. Just no idea why the chose that picture, rahter than the one clearely showing the AIO water cooler.

I was wrong, sorry.

HYBRID solution
Combine both air-cooling and watercooling to one perfect hybrid system to maintain higher over clock performance with lower temperature.

If this is the hybrid water cooled edition, it's great at keeping the temperatures down. Good buy.

As far as i know, it comfortably overclocks to 1200

don't go

That's a good deal heat added

I've only got a 630w 80+ bronze psu with a skylake i5-6600k. Will it handle this gpu?

I reckon it would be ok but the manufacturer spec says a 750w psu is required.

Comfortably, with plenty of space for overclocking

Thanks, that makes this a serious contender for my VR graphics card. I think I'm going to wait to see what the score is with the new nvidia cards being announced this week but this seems a good value for money ratio.

AMD cards have liquid VR (look it up) also have better scaling in crossfire than SLI
I would personally wait, cos the next round of cards will have more headroom to mantain that 90fps

Nice price. HOT!

What is this company like if something goes wrong, because from what i've read, powercolor are pretty much useless in the UK.

I believe there are rumors of the Geforce 1000 series announcement v soon (possibly today)

Good deal, but really bad timing.

With the new cards so close, it's really hard to recommend any card until the new batch comes out.

I agree. However if looking at benches with upcoming dx12, amd seem to be fine for couple of years to come. Im not speeking of mid range amd is going to smash top end nvidia, no, no. For regular user it will do great.

What examples are you referring to? Ashes? I wouldn't put much stock in a flagship product.

There are not many DX12 titles out there, so it's pretty presumptuous to say the 390x will be 'fine for a couple of years'. I mean, the 390x is a modified 290x, which is quite old already. October 2013. I wouldn't hold my breath for something that is based on tech that is 3 years old. Especially this close to the next set of cards.

Look what happened last time AMD or NVIDIA moved set of cards. The prices plummeted on the 290x.

Even if you believe this is 'good for a few years' you want to wait for the better prices.

Not so long ago i remember reading about that ashes game. The test they did some time ago and now show better performance. So the amd, without knowing, could have made cards more suitable for 12, rather than 11. The fact the nvidia is silent about their new tech is a little strange. It might well be that they have nothing good at this moment in time. If you look at any other technological breakthrough or update by any company, they are first to tell about it.

amazing. when i was a kid 80Mb was the biggest hard drive

I'm not sure which graphics card to get. I've just bought all brand new parts for everything except graphics and I'm worried about there being new cards soon. I would like something that can handle Dark Souls 3 well at least.

No, I think a better way to describe what AMD did is simply: They made cards that were not very efficient in terms of CPU use and had very very poor DX11 results. DX12 removes some of these issues and polishes these cards up a bit, but we may be at the 'best' point for 390x DX12 results, as once more and more features of DX12 hit, we may see these legacy cards start falling behind the newer set of cards (I.E. Fury and 900/1000 series).

This card will be fine for another year or 2.
Will age far better than the 979 and 980 as there oreformance is going to tank.
Wouldn't recommend buying any cards at the minute but you can't go wrong with this card as there epic.
The 290x will go down as a legendary card as it just keeps getting stronger.
Phenomenal value for the card over its life time and not many cards play as good as this does for this amount of time

Legendary? Geeze, I think we have different definitions of the word.

You state that the 970 will 'tank' as if it's a forgone conclusion, but it really isn't. Let's stop the wild speculation already.

Haha the 290x is beating the 970.
Go look at the division and lots of other games.
Your new to PC gaming and the 290x is a legendary card.
Trust me there has been no card that has done what that has done over time.
Voodoo cards were also legendary back in the day but nvidia gobbled them up.
That 290x still has plenty of life left in it.
Don't worry about maxwell as that will be gimped for pascal as history repeats itself.
Fiji will age nicely too although that slow out the gate at the minute.
What would u call legendary then ?
780ti and original Titian ? All more expensive and all getting slaughtered buy the 290x when they were the stronger cards costing a lot more money.

What an absolutely ridiculous and assumptive piece of drivel.

The Voodoo1/2 were legendary cards.

The Riva 128 was a legendary card.

The Geforce 256.

The 8800GTX was.

The Radeon 5970 was.

The 290x? Not a chance. It wasn't even the best of it's generation, let alone legendary.

Let me guess, you own a 290x?

And I'll say this again, where is your proof that Nvidia gimp their cards? The only source I have *ever* found was AMD fanboys screaming about it on forums. Surely you can link to a proper review that shows the loss.

bytemedev.com/the…is/

As with every card though, there will not be FUTURE updates based on older cards. Just like AMD doesn't support it's 7xxx or 8xxx cards anymore. Frankly, the only reason the 290x has been continuing to receive support is because the card was rebranded to the 390x.

No I don't own a 290x any more as I bought a fury about a year ago nearly and yes it was the best in it's class what are you on about ? Lol
Totally agree voodoo was epic.
Jealous that a 290x is beating the original Titian and 780ti in its class and took a rest and now does the 970 and if u overclock it it now takes on a 980.
You do know 390x performance can achieved with a overclock on a 290x and if that not a great value card then I don't know what is.
Keep telling people to buy the gimped 970 lol
780ti and Titian were in the same class as a 290x which was the best from amd and it destroys both 780ti and Titian.
The last game the division is 10fps behind on the 780ti and 16fps for the Titian. All cost more , same generation and all get whacked up.
Nate is a nvidia hard core fan boy in denial mode and quite possibly buyers remorse with his gimped 960 (_;)

AMD has been on a roll recently. The Division, Hitman, Far Cry Primal - all run faster on AMD. It looks like Quantum Break on DX12 is lot, lot faster too.

Not strictly true. The 390X has faster GDDR5 modules - I think only the 8GB Sapphire 290X has them. You can match the core clock, but not the RAM clock on most models, so it will be slower.

Overclocking Hawaii and increasing memory bandwidth was how AMD brought the 290X into competition with GTX 980.

I don't think the memory has anything to do with being faster than a 290x.
Just means it can hold 8gb of textures. There is a 290x 8gb card.
If you look at the division benchmark the 390x is 2fps ahead of the 290x and don't think we will worry about 2 fps will we ?
