R9 390 with AMD Athlon II X3 435 benchmarks at Ultra Quality 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. This combination between R9 390 and AMD Athlon II X3 435 is going to cause serious bottlenecks in many games and cause severe FPS loss. View Current Price List
