for 1080p the 970 is better than r9 390 ?
wouldnt as graphics driver update. the r9 390 will eventually beat the 970 ?
since is newer and more " future proof "

The 970 is better at 1080p yes. Unless you plan to play at higher resolutions then VRAM won't ever be the issue.

I wouldn't even consider the 390 anyway. If you are looking at AMD then I would get a 290X. It is not only faster but also cheaper.

Wrong, 390 is just as fast or faster than the 290X.

That's because everyone compares stock vs stock.

When you match clocks they are not the same. The 3xx is just a rebrand with higher stock clocks, face it.

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/06/18/msi_r9_390x_gaming_8g_video_card_review/9#.Vgiw5pdxmYl

I've asked you for evidence that the 3xx was faster on two different occasions. Neither time did you present any evidence. All you do is link me to the bios flash thread but that doesn't mean jack when a bios flash also raises memory clock by 1GHz, so obviously there will be an increase in performance.

It seems that I have to go out and buy both a 290 and a 390 to get a proper clock for clock comparison done because you don't believe hardOCP's results.

will u get the amd or nvidia card ? i might be playing 1080p but not sure in a year or 2 from now :S since 1440p and 4k prices are dropping in price in their monitors

at same clocks the 390 is faster.

edit: i have to oc my 290 by 70MHz to match a 290X. 100MHz to match a 390. 200MHz to match a 390X.

If you are playing at 1080p I would get a 970. 1440p I'd grab a 290X. If you want to play at 4K then I would get a 980 Ti and forget everything else.

Otherwise you could also buy a used card to save some money and wait until 2016 GPU releases to buy something new.

Proof? That's what I thought. You don't have any. Keep ignoring the HardOCP review. Not like they are credible or anything, right?

Weren't you the person who was DENYING all of the user experiences with the driver overhead issue because they didn't have screenshots and proof to show you?

But you expect us to believe your user experiences without evidence. Also you mention nothing about memory clocks. Funny how that works.
