Radeon R9 380 (OEM) Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380 (OEM) is an OEM only, Performance Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.


Architecture
The GCN 1.2 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture improves memory bandwidth performance which allows AMD to produce Graphics Cards with smaller data transfer rates without causing too much impact on the overall performance. This is done by using lossless delta color compression.
GCN 1.2 also adds improved Tesselation and video encoding/decoding performance as well as DirectX 12.0 Support.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Tonga PRO which is essentially a cut-down version of the Tahiti PRO GPU previously used on Radeon HD 7950. It offers 1792 Shader Processing Units, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 918MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1375MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, TrueAudio, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 190W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon R9 380 (OEM) is a direct rebrand of Radeon R9 285. Therefore, it offers exactly the same performance.
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 1080p (1920x1080) Radeon R9 380 (OEM) is almost as fast as GeForce GTX 670 and surpasses GeForce GTX 760 considerably.


System Suggestions
We recommend a decent Quad Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 380 (OEM).

hard to say, both kinda neck to neck. though this one has a 256-bit bus, the 960 have a 128bit and is only less than 8% better (the EVGA SSC version at least) but this one has a higher wattage.

I'd say wait. This is nothing but an HD7970 (not even GHz Edition - as that one is more powerful) with yet another name (as if R9 280X wasn't already an effing rebrand) - it's just a re-re-brand. Typical AMD style. This GPU is more than 3 years old for f_u_ck's sake. Wait for Pascal.
