Without a doubt, the Radeon R9 380X uses Antigua XT silicon with 32 Compute Units, 2048 Stream Processors, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs a starting frequency of 970 MHz promises cope quite well, that is why it will join to 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with a frequency starting from 5700 MHz along with the memory interface of 256 bits, promises a bandwidth of 182 GB / s, all with a TDP of 190W that require two connectors PCI Express 6 + 6 pins. All those numbers give floating point performance of 3.97 TFLOPS.
Packed with AMD Technologies
- VSR (Virtual Super Resolution): Get quality that rivals 1440p, even on a 1080p display while playing your favorite games thanks to AMD’s VSR.
- AMD Eyefinity Technology: Expand your territory and customize your field of vision. Connect up to four displays on a single GPU for dynamic, panoramic multi-screen gaming. You’ll get an expansive experience that’s truly out of sight.
- VULKAN: Support for this next-gen API for stunning, real-time graphics—giving the new wave of games direct control of GPU acceleration for max performance and predictability.
- DirectX 12: Microsoft’s new technology enables great performance and dramatically improved GPU and CPU multiprocessing and multithreading performance – thanks to Async Shaders and Multi-threaded Command Buffer Recording – for more efficient rendering of richer and more complex scenes.
- AMD Crossfire Technology: Scale up to four GPUs with AMD CrossFire and amplify your system’s graphics processing capability.
- AMD Freesync Technology: Maintain extreme frame rates while playing the most demanding games, without frame-tearing or video stuttering, using AMD’s open-standard dynamic refresh rate technology that automatically synchronizes your GPU output with AMD FreeSync technology-enabled DisplayPort monitors.
- AMD LiquidVR Technology: AMD is making VR as comfortable as possible by lowering the motion-to-photo latency. Enhance gaming realism and maintain ultra-immersive VR presence. Enjoy liquid-smooth visual performance and ultra-high frame rates and cross over to the other side of realistic virtual environments and interaction.
Regarding performance, as expected the GPU is twice as fast as a GeForce GTX 660, about 60 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 760 and looking a more modern model, about 30 percent faster the GeForce GTX 960, which allows you to run the Star Wars: Battlefront about near 60 FPS at a resolution 2K 2560 x 1440p. The card being based on the latest GCN 1.2 iteration, which is the same GCN (Graphics Core Next) revision as the Fiji graphics core is fully compliant with features like Color Compression, Vulkan API support and DirectX 12 API support. The GPU will be released with a price tag of $249 for Overclocked version and $229 for reference models, so it would be more profitable to buy a Radeon R9 290 about $280.
