Re: R9 390 and 390X
So far the R9 3xx series have been disappointing to me. The current cards in that series have the exact same chip as the R9-2xx counter part. They are basically just slightly overclocked and have some tweaking here and there.
I know some cards in the 3xx series are gonna arrive later with the new chip called Fiji. But it's just wrong tweaking a R9-290 and calling it 390. It's not a generation ahead at all.
Downclock the cards to their 2xx counterpart's specs and they are gonna perform pretty much identically.
