The R9 390 isn't known for its efficiency when it comes to power consumption. For comparison: during full load, a test system with a R9 390 equipped draws 337 watts of power. The same test system running a GTX 970 - which can be considered as the 390's main competitor - only draws 265 watts. See More
The R9 390 can handle gaming in Full HD (1080p) resolution extremely well, even with all settings maxed out. Performance in 1440p is also great, averaging 76 FPS in Battlefield 4 with Ultra settings. In Metro Last Light and Very High settings, the R9 390 reaches an average framerate of 53 FPS. See More
The R9 390 chip has been around for a while, and both NVIDIA and AMD are introducing new mid-range and high-end graphics cards in the remainder of 2016, such as the GTX 1070 by NVIDIA and the RX 480 by AMD. Lower priced cards are expected to launch as well, which would render the R9 390 outdated. See More
The Devil 13 R9 390 has been released a while ago and still uses AMD's previous generation R9 390 GPU's. In june 2016, NVIDIA has released their new generation of high-end graphics cards in the GTX 10XX range. AMD is also working on higher-end cards based on their Polaris architecture. Both new generations offer increased performance, significantly lower energy consumption and additional features such as better support for DX12 games. See More
The Devil 13 uses two Raden R9 390 chips, which allows for a lot of performance on a single graphics card. For example, playing GTA V on a Devil 13 in 4K resolution with maximum graphics settings will result in an average framerate of 52.1 FPS - compared to 57.3 FPS of two seperate R9 390X cards in Crossfire.
