    The MSI R9 390 GAMING 8G is a mid-range video card that you can definitely install in your PC if the time for an upgrade has come, but you don’t justify spending close to a thousand dollars on a GPU. This card comes with a highly affordable price that and you will definitely enjoy games and movies while putting it to work. It comes with solid overclock options, it has a great memory interface and it can support 4K resolutions, just to name a few of its perks.

     

    A video card that already runs at a high clock speed and that can also be overclocked needs to remain cool at all times, otherwise you risk losing your game progress when the part overheats and the fail-safe systems of the PC come into play. This is not the case with the MSI R9 390 GAMING 8G, as it has a solid cooling system, the renowned Twin Frozr V. The heat sink has a large surface and the TORX fan brings more air than ever before to it. The fan relies on a combination between traditional and dispersion blades, which contribute to a better airflow towards the video card. If you’ve stopped playing and the GPU has reached the usual low temperatures, you won’t hear the fans anymore; Zero Frozr kicks in during low-load conditions, by stopping the fans and reducing the noise output of the PC.

     

    MSI Afterburner is the application you want to have installed on your PC if you’re looking to overclock and tinker with your GPU. The MSI R9 390 GAMING 8G supports three operating modes from which you can choose one, or allow the card to choose one automatically based on load. The silent mode allows the card to run at 1000MHz without bothering you with noise. The 1040MHz overclock is suited for games, hence the “gaming mode” name of this setting. If you need to really push it, the OC mode takes your video card to 1060MHz. It might not seem as much, but when you want to enjoy all the details in a game, this extra clock speed is a great addition.

     

    The memory clock speed also has two modes: the standard one allows the clock speed to stay fixed at 6000MHz, whereas the OC mode takes the speed up to 6100MHz, so you can rely on the memory when you need it the most. The MSI R9 390 GAMING 8G comes with 8 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory, and its 512-bit interface should be all you need in order to run demanding games. The maximum resolution supported by the GPU is 4096 x 2160, meaning you get to experience the brand new 4K beauty of games and videos, if you also have a compatible monitor. If not, you can tune the settings down and enjoy Full HD content. There are 3 connection ports available on the video card, so you can easily create a three-monitor setup and immerse at a whole new level in your favorite games.
