Radeon R9 Nitro 390 8192MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card with Backplate (11244-01-20G)

AMD Radeon R9 390 and above are VR Ready, virtual reality headsets such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are game changers in the way we play games. Valves SteamVR benchmark is the best way to test if your current PC is VR ready, ideally you need a score of 7+ and a 390/390X tend to score 7-8 which means they meet the minimum specification for virtual reality. VR will change how we play games as titles such as Elite Dangerous are out of this world when experienced in VR and with upcoming titles such as Portal 3, Half Life 3, Doom the future looks very exciting for PC gaming and AMD is ready with Liquid VR.

The 390 series from AMD offer great future proofing for upcoming game titles such as Star Wars Battlefront, DOOM, Half Life 3 and Fall Out 4. Featuring DirectX 12 support and 8GB of memory makes the 390 series great for current and future games at resolutions upto 4k.

Great card,Love it

Grabbed it on Black Friday myself for £ careful its a big card and i love it,going purchase a 1440p monitor soon to compliment it..and got Dirt Rally as a bonus,massively recommend this card

Adrian Grocott 2016-01-29

Expected sound level. Unexpected performance.

First off, this card is loud, but anybody buying a graphics card with 3 fans should know that already.

Like a previous reviewer, I will be gaming at 1440p with this card and I have no worries it will handle it swimmingly.

10/10 is the only score applicable here, I have never subscribed to the AMD/Nvidia fan boy camp but this card is definitely a better buy than any stock 970 out there.

As usual, 10/10 service from overclockers, they have never let me down.

Mr Lewis Gotsell 2016-01-26

Good card - big - cool

It's massive, plays any game I throw at it 1080p 60FPS. Those 3 fans kick in whenever they're need, and it helps keep the temperature cool.

Whenever I can afford a 1440p monitor, I'll be confident to use this card with it.

Guermaine 2016-01-26

good card

Great cards, Bought 2

I didn't get any free games with them though. In fact i'm registered with sapphire 3 times with 3 gold codes and I do not get free game! How exactly do i get it or were i not given one the 3 times i bought a sapphire card?

They are flashed with firmware to make them 1040 mhz hence the bios says its not up to date but the flashed file is a newer version and I'm not sure if they need a bios update it's quite confusing

Overal, great card put fan speed on 37% and you'll be happy with the temps :)

GTX970 Beater

I managed to get this card during the Black Friday sale for £205 to replace an r9 270 Toxic. An insane deal for something that outperforms most reference GTX970s in WQHD.

The OC Tri-X fans are quite loud, and the 1920x1200 max performance isn't as perfect as I was hoping for (GTA max frame scaling results in 20fps and Star Citizen is sub-25fps with 8gb DDR3 on an FX8320 @ 4.4GHz) and it's a bit power-hungry, but I'm moving up to 1440p next year and the option of cross-firing this card would definitely have VR covered for the forseeable.

It also looks very nice, which I suppose is a consideration for some.

Dodmaster 2015-12-23

Excellent card

I have this card and I have to admit that it is spot on.Very quiet, great build quality , no coil whine what so ever and well priced.Can handle all games in 1080p as well as most of them in 1440p with High/Ultra settings. 10 out of 10

Blackwhite 2015-12-07

Great Card. Better Cooler

This card ran at 1040Mhz out of the box, not 1010Mhz.

Despite having more memory than will ever be used this card runs cool and quiet in a well ventilated case. Runs GTA V sweet and Battlefront will auto detect this card and set to gorgeous ULTRA.

    " 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."
