XFX R9 390X Review


XFX R9 390X Testing:

Metro: Last Light:

Part first-person shooter, part survival horror, Metro: Last Light is the follow-up to the extremely popular game Metro 2033. Developed by 4A games and published by Deepsilver, this game uses the 4A game engine. In this game, set a year after the missile strike on the Dark Ones, you continue on as Artyom as he digs deeper into the bowels of the Metro.


  • DirectX 11
  • 2x MSAA
  • Global settings = Very High
  • PhysX = Off
  • DOF = Off








BioShock Infinite:

BioShock Infinite, much like the first two installments of the franchise, is a first-person shooter known for its strong story and atmosphere. This third installment of the franchise no longer takes place in the underwater world of Rapture, but in the cloud city of Columbia. Utilizing many of the gameplay characteristics of the original games, BioShock Infinite has garnered critical acclaim. Taking the player through a maze of outdoor and indoor scenarios, the action is not constrained by territory. Developed by Irrational Games and published by 2K Games, this iteration uses the Unreal 3 game engine.




  • DirectX 11
  • Global settings = Ultra







In Metro: Last Light, XFX's R9 390X scales just higher than the R9 390 and R9 290X in all three resolutions, as it should. Bumping the resolution up a bit allows it to perform a little better against its green competition, delivering almost GTX 980-type performance at stock speeds. However, the limited overclocking margin on the core kept it from delivering that same level of performance when overclocked.

In BioShock Infinite, the XFX R9 390X delivers solid FPS performance results in all three resolutions, stock and overclocked. In the stock testing, the card has the GTX 970 and GTX 780 Ti covered, but again falls a bit short when the clock speeds are maximized. Overall the card is responsive in both games at 2560 x 1440. At 4K, Metro is going to need minimized settings to get to a level of FPS that is truly playable, while you can max out the settings in BioShock Infinite without that worry.
