[Official] AMD R9 290X / 290 Owners Club - Page 4294

post #42931 of 43971
still say they should've offer the 390x cause well my card its a lighting not just a normal card...


They got back to me cause i ask are they getting any back in stock? and they said our rma service center informed us that the buffer will be waiting for another 3 weeks.

So does that mean it will be in stock in 3weeks?


I also ask them what card they mean the 390 or 390x cause i told them about having a lightning and i should be getting the 390x instead.

Retailers have the 480s. Try that. The 470 matches the Hawaiis.

Hmm just asked them about the 390x and they said the ony card they have is the 390 GAMING 8G: https://us.msi.com/Graphics-card/R9-390-GAMING-8G.html#hero-specification buffer = stock ...

Will ask them about the 480. tho wouldn't you think they would have the 390x in stock?


It seems like they saying they ony have the 390 and that's it in stock...


edit just asked them about the 480 and i also asked is the 390 non x is the ony card that they have in stock. just waiting for them to get back to me. also asked them about if i wait 3weeks will i get back the 290x lighting.

And from what i seen the normal 390 is a bit slower than the 290x correct?

Just ask nicely for a RX 480.

290X Lightning to 390 Gaming is huge downgrade.

its mostly because the lightning is a premium card and a great overclocker and have alot of good features and also performs better than the normal 290x at times and stays cooler.


the 390 is a 8gb card too but still i would think they would've offer the x version for the premium card. heck i would've said yes even tho i still think i should be offer more cause of it being a lightning. not sure if they going to give in for the 480 even tho i don't see why not sense it is cheaper than than the 390s..


So far they still haven't replay back after i asked them... wonder if it would be better if i called?


i also have to watch also cause im not the first owner they took the rma in for the serial number like they usely known to do, But i just hope they don't ask for the proof from keep asking them stuff lol

I wouldn't accept a 390 as a replacement for a 290X as it's a straight down-grade, 390X is the optimal replacement as it's a side-grade when you factor in clocks, the 8GB of VRAM doesn't actually do much unless you're pushing enough pixels that you actually need multiple cards.

So they either give you a 290X, 390X or a refund, in AU that's the law and they cant back out of it, shouldn't be much different in your country.

they just got back to me and said our rma service center will be in touch with you later for follow up.... Not sure if the rma service center will be contacting me threw email or threw phone.

They didn't say which card will be the replacement..

And yea i wont accept a 390 non x. if they had the 390x i would take that or even if they had another lightning.

Im not sure how a refund will go if that comes down to it cause i did buy it used from the market here from MunneY Not sure if they would refused the rma if they knew that or what.. all they asked for is the serial on back of the card which i herd that's the ony thing they go by.

I just hope asking and refusing the 390 non x wont push them to ask more questions...

My MSI BF4 290 was replaced with a 290X.

Was it an upgrade? NO!

That 290 has Hynix. 290X with Elpida. 290 has been my go to bencher. This 290X Elpida sucks.

Lightning 290X is still slower than a 390 Gaming at stock. :meh:

Your greatest immunity to their RMA system is that, you paid for a PREMIUM CARD. They should prioritize you.

Lightning 290X is 1080mhz on gpu + more cores while MSI is 1040 + less cores.
