AMD’s Fiji GPU may be at the highest point of the organization’s portfolio, yet it’s by all account not the only illustrations processor ready to profit by a mixture cooling arrangement. PowerColor’s Radeon Devil R9 390X gloats twice as much memory and a comparable cooler. AMD propelled its 300-arrangement Radeon representation cards, re-branding the line up with renditions of past GPUs,
The R9 390X is boss among the new arrangement, and depends on the R9 290X’s Hawaii XT. The R9 390X comes furnished with 8GB of GDDR5 on a total 512-piece memory transport running at 1525MHz. The outcome is a hypothetical 390.4 GB/s of memory data transmission, which is 70 GB/s more than the R9 290X. That additional throughput could be what makes the additional memory important at 4K, exceptionally if Hawaii’s ALUs were going underutilized.

PowerColor proposed that there could be an issue with the introduced programming, and suggested utilizing Display Driver Uninstaller.
The diagram affirms our speculation; the shut circle cooler does its occupation well.

Top force attract the torment test is not as high as the Fury, yet under a more reasonable gaming load, the R9 390X uses right around 20W more. Indeed, even the card’s unmoving force draw is 10W higher than the R9 390. At the point when the overclock is connected, the spread is much bigger.
