ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX 8GB Video Card Review

Ashes of the Singularity DX12 Benchmark

Ashes of the Singularity Battle

Today we’ll be looking at one of the very first DirectX 12 game benchmarks by using Stardock’s real-time strategy game, Ashes of the Singularity. Ashes of the Singularity was developed with Oxide’s Nitrous game engine and tells the story of an existential war waged on an unprecedented scale across the galaxy. The Ashes of the Singularity Benchmark was never designed as a synthetic stress test, but a real world test that was used internally to measure overall system performance. That internal developer tool was recently released to the public as a DX12 benchmark!

We ran the benchmark at 3840×2160 with MSAA disabled and found that ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX did better than the AMD Radeon R9 Nano on the DirectX 11 test, but was just a tenth of a frame per second slower when the DirectX 12 API was used.

    comparing the flagship amd card to a 970? lol try it against a 980ti or a Titan and watch it get smoked.

      3.5 GB of VRAM, 32 ROPS, nVeediots = liars.

      390/x are not flagship cards Here get educated https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvV1KgGZtMo

      The 390X is not a “flagship” card. It is the upper-medium choice currently. The flagships are the “Fury” and “Fury X” cards which are more expensive and which certainly can go head-to-head with a 980ti in scenarios where no more than 4 GB VRAM is required. Their weak point is the 4 GB limit currently imposed by the stacked HBM VRAM. Even in spite of this the Fury X performs better at 4K and worse at 1080p than the 980ti.

    OMG.
    This website compares an OC model against an ITX nvidia card. Benchmark games where AMD is strong, and with high resolutions where the 8GB of video memory is used. Then you display a total of about 10% more performance with all that and despite being 100$ more expensive you award the card? WTF LEGITreviews? LMAO.

      butthurt.

      That is what nivida would do right.
