MSI Radeon R9 390X DirectX 12 R9 390X GAMING 8G 8GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Very Very fast card
- 2816 Stream Processors @1100Mhz+
- 8GB of DDR5 w/Lots of headroom for overclocking = MASSIVE MEMORY BANDWIDTH
- Very cool
- Very Very Quite or Silent
- Nice aesthetics w/optional LED control/variation - Red/Black colored card, white LED
- 2 slot card - 3 slot cards are a lottle much ;)

Cons: - Does not go to work for me
- Still refuses to drive me to the store
- Rarely answers when asked a question

Other Thoughts: - So, I've owned this card for about 6 months now (whenever launch was..) and it has served me Extremely well. I run most of my games at 9600x1800 across 3x1080p monitors using VSR (Virtual Super Resolution) and most games can run at this resolution with Everything Turned Up to 11... In the rare case where I have to lower the resolution, a vertical resolution of 1440 or 1080 can get you back quite a bit of performance.

I however REALLY like to run games at the aforementioned 1800p; even if only on a TV or single monitor. There simply IS NO ALIASING at this resolution... and that's on a 1080p monitor.

I am currently enjoying crushing the absolute dog xxxx out of Star Wars Battlefront. The game looks Increadible with an aspect ratio of 48:9 and everything Maxed out at 9600x1800. It is like Daaayum. Witcher 3, runs and looks increadible as well. In fact, you'd be Hard Pressed to find a game or scenario where this card Didn't Excel.

If you are on the fence, BUY THIS CARD. Noise is not a factor and the speed is Phenomenal!

Daily settings:
8350 @4.6Ghz 1.36v
16Gb DDR3 @1846Mhz 10-10-10-28 1.5v
500Gb Samsung Evo SSD via Sata 6Gbs
This MSI Radeon 390X w/8Gb DDR5 @1115/1642Mhz +22 power limit

Card will clock higher with more juice, but this is an almost negligible bump for daily use. Either way, this card tears through games and if you're playing at Higher Resolutions where memory bandwidth is going to have a major impact... this card is the IT with an SH for the $$

Pros: This drive is about as good as it's going to get for the old SATA connection that we all know and love...

Cons: Unfortunately, that means only about 550Mbs Read/Write speed because of the interface limitations.

Other Thoughts: Samsung Magician Does Help overcome the SATA bandwidth limitation by using some of you system RAM as cache essentially, but I can't help but imagine how much better this would be with an M.2 interface.

I'll have to wait til Zen for that.. Go Red

Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)

5 out of 5 eggs Yeah, it's fast 01/08/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)

Pros: 120Mbs Read
90Mbs Write - - - SUSTAINED

Cons: Zero

Other Thoughts: I got this thing for under $30 and it's a 128Gb USB 3.0 Monster, that rips through data transfers. I'm happy

On a side note, the random 4k read/write speed isn't very good; so this won't be replacing your SSD anytime soon...but that's to be expected. Overall, this is a phenomenal drive regardless of price and an OUTSTANDING Value as it stands.
