AMD has made its new Radeon 300 series official, with the Radeon R9 390X leading the pack. The Radeon R9 390X is based off of the same Hawaii architecture that made the Radeon R9 290X possible, so there's nothing new architecturally.

But, the Radeon R9 290X was an impressive card when it was released, and it still is today. While it won't beat the GeForce GTX 980 Ti in benchmarks, AMD fans will be happy to just have another Radeon card out, after over 18 months since the Radeon R9 290X was released.

Our reviews on the Radeon R9 390X will begin to flow very soon.
