R9 390X underperforming?

Recommended Posts

Hey, I just got my new r9 390X.

I installed the newest driver (15.15) and configured it.

I made a test with novabench and im only getting around 1600 fps, my old GTX 960 had 2300.

Anyone knows this? Is this just a Novabench Error?

Cause some programms also show up that it has only 4gb vram, but it has 8.

My PSU has 650 watts, so I don't think that's the problem.

 

Thanks

 

PS: Sorry for my english :D

Looks like this score is about average for other R9 300 series. Try overclocking it to beat the 960 performance?

The thing is i looked with MSI Afterburner, and the GPU is only using 40% power.. I don't know why it doesn't use 100%, basically it should get around 3700 fps with 100%..

Yep, had 650 watts.. I don't know what the problem was, i sent the 390x back, got a 700 watts psu and bought a gigabyte gtx 980. No Problems now.
