My OEM 290 is a terrible clocker

That don't matter, these are bios optimizations to unlock driver performance update from newer Crimson drivers for the 300 series, the clock will be bumped 50MH at most to 1000MHz.

Everything I saw while browsing said maybe 1-3 fps with the 390 bios

But what about the memory speed increase? IIRC a lot of 290's couldn't hit 1500mhz memory which is what the 390 is stock at.

Hawaii was never known to be memory restricted because of its 512 Bits Bus, you wont lose anything trying but if you can't then just reduce the memory clock back to 290 levels.

Just curious though, what benefit would there be to the 390(x) bios over the 290(x). As the 390 or 390x core clocks are rather easy to achieve on a 290 or 290x. So assuming the memory could not handle 1500, is there any actual benefit at the same clock speed to justify a bios change?

Clock for clock it should be faster, as far as I know this happens because of Crimson Driver optimizations tailored to the 300 series not available on the 200 series.

I max everything at 1080P without risk of bricking 290, I'll keep OEM bios. Thanks for suggestion
