Today we got our hands on Powercolor’s R9 390. This is the cheapest R9 390 you could get for under RM1500. Despite it being the most inexpensive R9 390, you’re getting a beautiful card with triple fans and that awesome backplate that isn’t just for aesthetics.
As of the output options there’s nothing fancy here. There’s 1 x Displayport, 1 x HDMI and 2 x DVI ports.
However, I really want to mention that the backplate is great and doesn’t trap heat.
Nothing fancy here as well. Just some branding and power connectors. To juice up this card you’ll need a 6 pin and an 8 pin connector. Below you’ll find the GPU-Z of the card.

Here are the idle and 100% load temperatures. I must compliment the fans. Yes they fully shut off under low loads. When a game is run it ramps up the fans which is pretty common in most graphics cards found today. Even though, its good to have it there. One thing I did notice that after exiting heavy loads such s games or Furmark, the fans ramped down from around 75 degrees to around 60% in almost 2 seconds which is fast, at least for me.
Enough talk, here’s the cards idle and 100% full load temps.
