New cards will be using an improved architecture,Fiji GPUs have bottlenecks in its architecture,and a node shrink will allow more complex gpus in a similar surface while using less power,without counting on driver optimization and future features that will support

A hd7970 could match a 6990 easily while being cheaper

the 390 is well worth the 100$ price premium, no real point in spending 240 for a 380 or 960 they are pretty gimp.

Just wait. New cards will be out soon, and I am sure the performance jump will be worth waiting for a few months.

I'd say the $100 upgrade for R9 390, is like a upgrade from GTX970 to a GTX 980

Otherwize, if the gpu is fast enough or good enough for what your doing.
Why not wait for longer untill they release more powerfull GPUS?

Yeah like some of you guys are saying, hold out for a bit untill new gpus comes out

Yep, I'm definitely waiting it out. I don't want to be that guy who bought a 1950xt right before the GTX 8800 series came out.. (2006)
