Asus STRIX Radeon R9 390X Review: Hawaii Gets 8GB
Asus Strix Radeon 390x Wrap Up
On the plus side, the Asus STRIX R9 390X is a sexy and fast graphics card. And the 1 year subscription for XSplit bundled with it potentially saves you $60 out of the gate. If you can't afford a flagship graphics card like the Fury or 980 Ti, the Asus STRIX 390X is a fine choice.
In our actual game tests, the Asus STRIX R9 390X was also faster than the GeForce GTX 980 overall, a familiar refrain if you’ve read our Radeon Fury review. Once again, AMD has introduced a card with good bang-for-the-buck, that frequently outperforms its Nvidia competitor but costs an average $35 to $50 less. And you’ve got 8GB of GDDR5 on your side with the 390X. You don’t need it right now for most games, but it’s a solid investment in the future.
