Radeon R9 380X quick overview

Radeon R9 380X claimed to be able to handle AAA game Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) with the highest fine detail. Being in the middle segment, Radeon R9 380X will face tough challenges from competitors including from the ranks of AMD graphics cards given quite a number of options in this segment. Can Radeon R9 380X being the most prominent?

AMD's latest graphics cards and Radeon R9 380X who attended the first time to our lab is made by Sapphire graphics card, the Sapphire Nitro R9 380X.

If you look at its GPU-based Antigua, certainly the first time you will think this is R9 380 with increased clock speed and memory. But you are wrong, this is Antigua / Tonga with 2048 stream processors and GPU Antigua different uses R9 380. Armed with a capacity of 4 GB VRAM memory, graphics cards AMD seems positioned to handle the game with a resolution of Full-HD above.

Radeon R9 380X

Interesting! Is probably the most appropriate word to describe the performance of the Radeon R9 380X. Why do we just say interesting? Let us give the reason. For the performance of R9 380X by default is able to position themselves in between R9 380 / GTX 960 and R9 390 / GTX 970. When used to handle gaming at full HD resolution (1920 × 1080), the graphics card is able to handle most of the entire game that we try to be better than R9 380 and GTX 960, even with high image detail settings though. But AMD still has not successfully compete with the power consumption of graphics cards made by NVIDIA GTX 960, GTX 970 and even higher performance.

if you see the performance in the synthetic benchmark 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra that simulates the performance of 4K, it seems R9 380X will still be quite overwhelmed and will require some reduction in detailed settings for the game can be played comfortably.

The performance of R9 380X Sapphire version is also not too far from the reference version, given that there are differences in the GPU and memory clock-was also not too far, less than 100 MHz and 300 MHz memory only. The difference is that only 5-7% we can say is still in the stage of error margin. As for the performance of the cooler, Sapphire Radeon R9 Nitro 380X is equipped with Dual-X can be said to be quite capable, given the coolant can withstand the heat that does not exceed 68 ° C in the test Unigine Heaven extremely "torturous" GPU. Unfortunately, the Sapphire Radeon R9 380X have this very power hungry. In the test Unigine Heaven power applications, the power consumption of our test systems with graphics cards reached 312 Watt Full-load current. This figure is quite high, so we recommend that you should set up a 550 Watt Power Supply Unit are qualified!

If you think this GPU is too expensive, then i recommend you cheap graphics card under 100 dollars for gaming:http://www.thegamingpcguide.com/2015/10/top-5-best-cheap-...
