MSI R9 390 overview

  • 1Description

Built for gaming at high resolutions, MSI's Radeon R9 390 Gaming 8G Graphics Card features 8GB of GDDR5 vRAM for loading large textures and graphics coupled to 2560 Stream Processors running at a base speed of 1000 MHz with a 512-bit memory bus with a 384 GB/s bandwidth. Using the included utility, the GPU can be overclocked up to 1060 MHz when running in OC mode. Another benefit of the OC mode in addition to the increase in GPU clock speed, is an increase in the effective memory clock speed to 6100 MHz from 6000 MHz.

Not only for gaming the R9 390 GPU is based on AMD's GCN architecture and supports APIs such as OpenCL and OpenGL. These APIs can take advantage of the GPU's 2560 Stream Processors to accelerate parallel computing tasks, taking some of the processing load off of the CPU.

The output panel of this card features four output ports, two dual-link DVI-D outputs, a DisplayPort output, and an HDMI output. The HDMI and DisplayPort outputs support resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160. That resolution, combined with AMD's Eyefinity, can provide an immersive gaming experience using up to three monitors.

To keep cool, even when overclocked, MSI implemented their Twin Frozr V cooler on this card. The Twin Frozr V cooler uses two large fans to force air through the heatsink and dissipate heat and lower the GPU's internal temperature. Because this kind of cooler recirculates air back into the case, this card works best in cases that have unrestricted airflow.

4K Support
Display graphics, games, and video in UHD (3840 x 2160) and Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) for increased detail on 4K resolution displays. Games which support 4K resolutions will display greater detail for enhanced realism and reduced artifacts. 4K video from services such as Netflix and YouTube can deliver full resolution video for an enhanced media experience.
AMD's Virtual Super Resolution is a scaling utility. It uses the GPU architecture in order to take advantage of 4K capabilities with lower screen resolutions by having the graphics card render at higher resolutions and then intelligently down-sample the output to fit the smaller screen. Aliasing and jagged artifacts are reduced on down-scaled rendering compared to a native resolution rendering.
FreeSync Technology
AMD's FreeSync Technology allows for communication between the graphics card and a monitor with FreeSync support. Having this communication enables the monitor to dynamically adjust its refresh rate to the frame rate being output by the graphics card, thereby greatly reducing tearing, stuttering, and other artifacts.
AMD Eyefinity is a multi-display utility which allows you to arrange multiple displays on your desktop. Having multiple displays can increase productivity and also provide a more immersive gaming experience.
AMD's Frame Rate Target Control lets you select a target frame rate for the graphics card to maintain. Since the graphics card only has to work as hard as necessary to generate a set frame rate, rather than try to attain unnecessarily high frame rates, game-play will be smoother.
AMD's CrossFire works with compatible motherboards and allows you to install and combine up to four of the same GPUs to split the processing load and render graphics with improved frame rates and image quality in supported applications.
PowerTune Technology
AMD's PowerTune Technology allows the GPU to run at higher clock speeds with sufficient thermal headroom. PowerTune will intelligently adjust the clock speed when the GPU's temperature and power consumption to give the best performance possible at a given temperature.
ZeroCore Power Technology
Shuts down the GPU when not in use to greatly reduce power usage while the card is idle.
TrueAudio Technology
AMD TrueAudio Technology allocates GPU processing to audio, allowing for greater overall audio processing for advanced audio sequences, especially in games.
