Awards & Media Coverage
"...as soon as we saw the updated R9 390 Nitro (with backplate and 8GB of GDDR5), we knew that Sapphire was onto a winner. This Direct X 12, 28nm card might have 30% less processors than the Fury X, but when you push they clock up from 1,040MHz to 1,133MHz then you can get to an average of 32fps in Grand Theft Auto 5 at 4K with maximum IQ settings – just 5fps behind the stock Fury … but the Sapphire R9 390 Nitro is close to half the price."Award
