Radeon R9 380X Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380X 2GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
Radeon R9 380X equips the GPU Codenamed Antigua XT which is a GCN 1.2 GPU and has 32 Compute Units activated, offering 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 970MHz.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1425MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.


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


Performance
Essentially, Radeon R9 380X is a Power Optimized Radeon R9 280X. As of November 2015, Radeon R9 380X has no Direct Competitor because the awaited GeForce GTX 960 Ti is yet to be released.
Benchmarks Indicate Solid Performance at 1440p but Radeon R9 380X is still best suited for 1080p Gaming, as most modern demanding games will run with FPS ranging between 20 and 40 at 1440p.


System Suggestions
Radeon R9 380X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We Recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

I don't understand why AMD adopted Delta CC on this GPU and reduced its bandwhidth to 256-Bit… In the theory is was done to reduce TDP (250W vs 190W) without loosing performance, but real consumption tests stated that both GPUs have similar power consumption, and in some games the 380X consumes MORE, WTF?

Hey guys, i just wanted to ask if my processor can handle two of those r9 380x using crossfire, or if it would be a bottleneck. also, do you recommend buying another r9 380x for crossfire purposes?

For your resolution CF this GPU is completely overkill, and if you plan VR, sell your and take RX 480 8GB/GTX 1060/GTX 980+, and as longer you have an six-core FX, then are no avaliable AM3+ CPUs that will give you more gaming performance.

If they are going to be the same price where you live, then definitely the RX 470. However, if the R9 380X drops in price (people selling them used, seller liquidation) then the 380X will still be a good buy if price significantly.

Had heard the R9 380/380x is pretty much stronger and that 4gb vram is really tempting
Thanks for the help!

BlOps 3 before the Cap I got 100fps+ at my resolution.
Witcher 3 at 1680x1050 maxed out no Hairworks though, with great fps, though I still have some input lag and it crashes on two maps.
AC Unity ran amazingly really well at 1680x1050 maxed out, though there are some areas where it's not as good.

can't ask for more(at my resolution and even 1440p) in terms of gaming, 3d model rendering and multitasking, especially for how little my PC actually costed me, but I will most-likely upgrade when Zen comes out if the price is right.

If what google says it's true, it has 2 12V Rails delivering 22A each. Though not the best configuration, it is certainly enough for Radeon R9 380X.

Well, GeForce GTX 650 is not suited for 1080p Gaming.
Your Processor is Quite Good but lacks Power in Games which High Performance Per Core is needed.
I would say that upgrading to this Graphics Card keep the rest unchanged is an excellent idea.

I meant the rig with the R9 380x but still you think I"ll be "safe and sound" for at least 2-3 years before I need to replace some of the components ?

I can't say for sure.
I believe the 4GB of Video RAM Radeon R9 380X offer some future proof for Texturing Purposes.
However, it seems like next Year AMD is finally letting to of the overused Graphics Core Next Architecture.
More and more Game Developers work with AMD and NVIDIA to come up with Realistic Visuals that require Proper Driver Development.
Now, I am not saying AMD is letting go of Driver Updates for GCN Graphics Card when the New Architecture starts being used, but the Performance Improvement Focus will be for the latter.
Thus, in such a time like this, perhaps the best decision is to wait for Next Gen Graphics Cards which are not only more powerful, but also more efficient and will get all the juicy support.
