Because AMD hasn't used a new architecture in the Radeon R9 390X, we're looking at the same power consumption that the Radeon R9 290X used. Under our Battlefield 4 testing at 2560x1440, the MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming 8G along with our entire test bed PC used 470W of power.
This is a huge number, and something you should take into consideration. NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture really comes into play here, with the GTX 980 only consuming 280-320W depending on the card.
Thanks to MSI using its Twin Frozr V cooling technology, the MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming 8G is relatively quiet when under operation. We're looking at it being quieter than the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Matrix Platinum, and even the GTX 980 Ti when it's fans are cranked to 100%.
