R9 390 with i7-4790K benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

At 1440p, R9 390 can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is clear that the R9 390 is a significantly more capable high-end card that can play AAA titles at 1080p/1440p with 50-60 frames per second. It is worth noting that the R9 390 is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. In terms of memory, the R9 390 's 8192 MB RAM is more than enough for modern games and should not cause any bottlenecks.
