    As it been a while and there should of been drivers improvements, it would be awesome to see these two battle it out once more as well as adding rx 570 and rx 580 into the mix if you own any. This is still a good video.

    Hey does it worth upgrading from a r9 380 to a r9 390? Msi 1st(4gb) 2nd (8gb)? My cpu is an i5 6400

    First of all, nice video! However, I'm a bit puzzled by your Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor scores - the only game from your benches that I have. I have an ASUS R9 390 Strix Direct CU III card and clocked at 1090 MHz on the GPU and 1550 MHz on the memory, I get 101.7 fps in the benchmark with the same settings. The card is alongside an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, however, I previously had an AMD FX-8370 with which I got 96 or 98 fps (can't remember if it was the one or the other) with the exact same settings. The FX was undervoltaged and P-state modified, which meant it would run 4.6 GHz in single-thread and 4.2 to 4.4 GHz in lightly to medium threaded workdloads. Fully threaded, it would run 4.0 GHz. The Ryzen runs at stock settings and may possibly be able to push a little harder than an I5 6600K, but the FX-8370 alongside the exact same card, still stomps your I5 6600K. That doesn't really make any sense, at least according to the public story about the FX-series processors. Is your cpu sufficiently cooled and have you possibly pushed the R9 390 OC a little too high? In unigine Heaven I get 1387 and that compares reasonably in-line with your scores.

    Nice! Mine just lags bcause my psu is fucking a bottleneck which is very bad.. i know..

    AMD cards are so future proof! Hence the "fine wine" reference. Lots of Vram and the architecture is built for the long haul. Get a Nvidia if you want great short term performance and you "have to" uave the latest GPUs. Get AMD if you want a good card right off the bat which turns to a great card, even 4 years down the road!
