    I wonder how long this one will retain its sale value. While current low end cards are bound to be crushed, this may live a while.
    But it really depends on how close Polaris 10 will be. If Polaris 10 is actually around same level, or OCs well, then this is waste of PCB.

    And if Polaris does not do good job slaughtering it, Pascal will.
    (Hawaii GPU is not bad, and improvements done with Tonga/Fiji were not putting it that much behind, because those were simplification/efficiency changes and Hawaii was simply built with super thick memory controller. But now, it is going to be 2 generations behind and some of changes are likely small in design, but big in impact on performance.)

    Its a bloody typo.Like this "The memory clock is 6.00 GHz on the gDDR% memory." :-"

    This card came with 8GB Vram,as all R9 390 cards.This card is made it for China region (PRC, Hong Kong, Taiwan).

    The gDDR% may have been a typo, but the 4GB VRAM isn't. R9-390s with only 4GB VRAM have been on the market in the Asia-Pacific region since late last year.

    I have links but I don't have enough of a post count to be able to post links. Google "4gb R9-390" and you'll find plenty of articles about it.
