The XFX R9 390 8GB and Ryzen 5 1600X are good together on Windows 10 Pro version 1703 OS build 15063.250, Windows and games feels smooth and responsive.
Having been focused on my XFX Radeon RX480 issues and finding some resolutions to them in a bios update, I now revisit the XFX R9 390. I can tell you that the performance is great with absolutely no issues running in Windows 10 Pro version 1703 OS build 15063.250. I will test it in the Ryzen 7 1700 and update my experience on Windows 10 Pro version 1703.
So I put the XFX R9 390 back into the i7-4790K system, which is currently running Windows 10 Pro version 1607 OS build 14393.1066 and it runs excellent using the Radeon Software version 17.5.1, so far it's operating extremely well, I enabled Virtual Super Resolution and set in-game resolution to 2560x1440. The performance is similar to a GTX980 as I can say by having ran GTX980's prior to getting a GTX1080.
It's always good to test out aging hardware with newer software to see if any improvements have been made to overall performance. I am pleased so far with the performance of the XFX R9 390 in this configuration. I will test this on the Ryzen 7 1700 system to see how it performs. But for now it runs great with this configuration. Well done on the R9 390, I believe when I purchased this card I was still running Windows 7, so the DX12 in Windows 10 is a real boost to the performance of this card, even if you run DX11 game titles, DX11 is implemented far better in Windows 10 than in Windows 7, people need to really absorb that in order to really appreciate Windows 10.
Ok going to test the R9 390 in the Ryzen 7 1700 system.
The XFX R9 390 is configured in the Ryzen 7 1700 system, no issues encountered. Radeon software version 17.5.1 installed and VSR enabled, in-game resolution set to 2560x1440. Gaming performance on Windows 10 Pro version 1703 OS build 15063.250 seems to take a hit compared to the i7-4790K and Windows 10 Pro version 1607 OS build 14393.1066, but maybe it's just the i7-4790K's clock speed. Still the R9 390 is performing well under Windows version 1703. I can't complain since the game runs pretty smooth even with game recording on. I am pleased with the overall performance and responsiveness that the R9 390 gives to Windows 10, applications and games.
