R380 Flash/OC to R380X, Sure the chances of it working is really high
Diffrence is max overclocking, R380X clocked manufacturly higher has much more chance for more
Besides more oc capability, some times the X versions have more straming cores/better efficenty which is even better than higher overclocks (refer to AMD specifications）
For GPU OC, you'd want to look for a GPU that has more power phases than refrence design.
I know VRMS overheat and pcb tracks overheat on my refrence hd7850, So even with VRM cooling I cannot overvoltage my GPU due to PCB overheating

Yeah Thats what I was thinking.
Because guys were saying 380 390 is just a old HD radeon 7XXX seires rebranded or overclocked / golden bin. Although I belive its a newer design.
HD7850 crossfire 2GB X2 =4GB was slower than a R9 270X 4GB though, so I don't know about that r 390 not being a upgrade
R3XX series is even newer than R 2XX series so a R9 290 Should already be a upgrade?Edited by Iwamotto Tetsuz - 2/10/16 at 12:35am
