In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Dual-X OC 2GB Edition are significantly better than the AMD Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition.

The HD 7790 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 370, but the R7 370 has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the HD 7790. As a result, the R7 370 exhibits a 2.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the HD 7790. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The HD 7790 has a 90 MHz higher core clock speed than the R7 370, but the R7 370 has 16 more Render Output Units than the HD 7790. As a result, the R7 370 exhibits a 14.3 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the HD 7790. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 370 was released over a year more recently than the HD 7790, and so the R7 370 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the HD 7790.

The Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Dual-X OC 2GB Edition and the Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R7 370 has 76.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the HD 7790, which means that the memory performance of the R7 370 is much better than the HD 7790.

The Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Dual-X OC 2GB Edition has 1024 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 370 is 901 and the actual shader performance of the HD 7790 is 963. The HD 7790 having 62 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the R7 370 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Dual-X OC 2GB Edition requires 150 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R7 370.

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 370 Sapphire Dual-X OC 2GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Fast-Middle-Class Radeon R7 370, created by Sapphire.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 985MHz, instead of 925MHz, while the Boost Clock achieves 1035MHz, instead of 975MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
None.

Frame Buffer
Untouched.


Cooling Solution
Two-ball bearing: Dual ball bearings on the fan spindles ensure smooth running and long life and are designed to keep out dust. A quiet cooling solution, Two ball-bearing fan features a high-efficiency blade design.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 3% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R7 370.
Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC 2GB Edition is a special edition of the performance Radeon HD 7790.
This edition comes with a cooling solution called DirectCU II, which achieves 20% lower temps and vastly quieter performance than reference with direct-contact copper heatpipes and dual fans, according to Asus. It also comes overclocked out of the box in the core-clock to 1075MHz and on the memory clock to 1600MHz, though the latter might prove useless, as this card might not benefit from extra bandwidth.
The 2GB framer buffer proves useless and Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost when compared to the reference card.
