In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 360.

The Radeon R7 360 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 380, but the R9 380 has 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360. As a result, the R9 380 exhibits a 59.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R7 360 has a 70 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 380, but the R9 380 has 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360. As a result, the R9 380 exhibits a 14.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition and the Radeon R7 360 were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The R9 380 has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 360, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 380 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 380 has 92.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 360, which means that the memory performance of the R9 380 is massively better than the Radeon R7 360.

The Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition has 1792 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 360 has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 380 is 1493 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360 is 685. The R9 380 having 808 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 380 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 360.

The Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition requires 190 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 360 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 380 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360. The R9 380 requires 115 Watts more than the Radeon R7 360 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 380 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 360.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by PowerColor.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 980MHz, instead of 970MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1475MHz, instead of 1375MHz.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.


Cooling Solution
PCS-Professional Cooling System: The unique cooling technology can decrease operating environment temp. Effectively, and enhance headroom for OC capabilities.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 1% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 380.
Overview
Radeon R7 360 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R7 360 Equips a GPU Codenamed Tobago PRO which is a Second Gen GCN GPU and can be considered a rename of the Bonaire PRO previously used on Radeon R7 260.
Tobago PRO has 12 Compute Units activated and thus offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1050MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1500Hz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB. This would be useful were the Graphics Card suited for 1080p Gaming, which is not the case. Power Consumption

With a rated board TDP of 75W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Radeon R7 360 2GB is essentially a faster Radeon R7 260 2GB.
Its release Price of $109 is what makes it a very competitive Graphics Card because its performance is only slightly better than GeForce GTX 750 and the GPU is not 1080p gaming capable, considering today's gaming market.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 360 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
