ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX 8GB Video Card Review


Grand Theft Auto V


Grand Theft Auto V, currently one of the hottest PC games, was finally released for the PC on April 14, 2015. Developed by Rockstar, it is set in 2013 and the city of Los Santos. It utilizes the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE) which Rockstar has been using since 2006, with multiple updates for technology improvements.



In Grand Theft Auto V we set the game to run with no MSAA with 16x AF and high image quality settings as we didn’t want the GPU to bottleneck the system too bad, but wanted a setup that your average gamer would actually play on.


Benchmark Results: In GTA V we ran the games built-in benchmark three times, averaged the numbers and got some pretty interesting results. The ASUS GeForce GTX 970 Mini-ITX video card took the lead here and the ASUS Radeon R9 390X STRIX came in the slowest of the three with these game settings that use about 3.6GB of frame buffer.
