Questions and Answers

  • Question: Hi I need help for upgrading my gpu and im from Malaysia.
    My current gpu is R9 270 2GB PowerColor and now the gpu is kinda outdated and cant run latest game 60fps in Full HD.Im planning on buying a gpu but there are 3 gpu in my list and i dont know which one to choose.
    3 Gpu that im interested:GIGABYTE GTX1060 3G D5 G1 GAMING (Price:RM1169-8)
    :MSI R9 390X 8GD5 GAMING (Price:RM1099-0)-THIS CARD IS IN PROMO
    :MSI RX 480 8GB DDR5 GAMING X (Price:RM1431-9)
    Any suggestions?
    HELP ME

    Answer: Are you planning to play in which resolution?

    The 390X can handle 1080p in High settings without problems, may suffer with Ultra settings a bit tho

    But i've been reading bad reviews from Mafia 3 and Quantum Break about their optimization. So they're not performing well at even high specs machines.

    Aside from both, it will work nicely in 1080p/High

  • Question: microcenter selling a gtx 1060 3gb for around 0 but i also found someone on craigslist selling an R9 390x for 0 which gpu should i get?


  • Question: Which one should I buy? Thank you

    390x is about 120$ more expensive than gtx 1060

    Rx 480 is the cheapest one around

    Answer: There are about 5 games in the world that run DX12 and/or Vulkan. There are hundreds, if not thousands of games that run DX11 and older, or Open GL.

    Newegg is having a "sales event" right now, and I'm seeing a lot of GTX1060's right around the 0-0 mark. Much better than the 0 GTX1060's I was seeing two weeks ago. The cheapest 390x is still around 0, and the RX480's are right around the 0-260 range as well.

    My vote goes to a GTX1060 if you're going to buy one in the next 3-4 days.

  • Question: Hi guys,
    I'm planning to put a system together that can handle 4K gaming at a medium+ setting, I just want to know which of these two cards (r9 390x 8gb and rx480 8gb) has a better performance.
    Thank you

    Answer: Playable is a very subjective term. My goal is to have a solid 60 fps with my system. Anything below that feels kind of choppy. That of course is my opinion. And if it can do that now what about the next year or so? Also when you are looking at benchmarks the average is not that important. The minimum and 99th percentile are showing a much more complete picture of how the game is going to run. Meaning that an average of 35 in gta would translate in sth like 15 to 20 minimum (or so). So every time you get in a demanding scene you might get a pretty annoying low spike in your frame rate. And god knows that games like gta and witcher are full with those kind of scenes.

    The good thing is that you can always play at 1080p with a 4k monitor without distortion. if you haven't bought the monitor a 1440p might be a better choice for you and also a substantial upgrade quality wise.

    The 1060 seems like a more adequate card for you, if after all said and done the rumors are validated. If it delivers 980 or above performance you might get what you want.

  • Question: I'm looking forward to build my new pc!Apparently, I'm stuck between chosing the R9 390X NITRO or the upcoming RX 480 NITRO(both from Sapphire).Can someone please give me an advise which card performs or will perform better for 1080p?

    My cuurent build w/o the graphics card:
    Intel Core i5-6600K
    HyperX Fury 2x8 gb 2666MHz
    Asus Z170-A
    Be quiet!Straight Power 800W

    Answer: for the performance i will choose r9 390x for sure .
    It can outperform the rx480 at any resoultion about
    10-15%. RX480’s performance is similar to the gtx970,and the r9 390x is similar to a gtx980.So,if you really need a better performance‘s card,it is absolutely no reason to choose the rx480.
