In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 4GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 360X.

The GTX 980 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed and 72 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360X. This results in the GTX 980 providing 82.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 980 has a 26 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360X. This results in the GTX 980 providing 54.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R7 360X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 980, and so the Radeon R7 360X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 980.

The GTX 980 has 2048 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 360X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 980 also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 980 has 120.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 360X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980 is massively better than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X has 896 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB has 2048. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 980 is 3362. The GTX 980 having 2486 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 980 4GB requires 165 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the GTX 980. The GTX 980 requires 45 Watts more than the Radeon R7 360X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 360X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 360X is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) 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 Tobago XT which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus offers 896 Shader Processing Units, 56 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 1100MHz and goes up to 1150MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1625MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Product Not Released. Performance Not Known Yet.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 360X 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor (Intel Core i3 Dual Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 980 4GB is a high-end Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture. It surpassed previous GeForce GTX 780 Ti and cost less. It was also much more energy efficient. Read below to know more.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM204-400-A1 which has 16 SM activated and thus 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs, on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit runs at 1126MHz and goes up to 1216MHz, in Turbo Mode, while the memory clock operates at 1753MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, VXGI, MFAA, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan and is identical to the one seen on GeForce GTX 780. The Card is known to run cool and has a maximum operating temperature of 98ÂșC.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 165W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two 6-pin connectors.

Release Price
The release price of $550 is lower than of its predecessor - GeForce GTX 780 which was launched for $649.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 4K (3840x2160) GeForce GTX 980 4GB is over 20% faster than its predecessor and even beats GeForce GTX 780 Ti in about 7%.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 980 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
