In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 360X are very slightly better than the AMD Radeon R9 360 (OEM).

The Radeon R7 360X has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed and 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 360. This results in the Radeon R7 360X providing 13.6 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 Radeon R7 360X has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 360 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R7 360X providing 1.6 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 less than a year after the R9 360, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 360X and the Radeon R9 360 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon R7 360X and the Radeon R9 360 (OEM) are the same, which means the Radeon R7 360X and the R9 360 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon R7 360X has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 360 (OEM) has 768. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876 and the actual shader performance of the R9 360 is 685. The Radeon R7 360X having 191 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R7 360X delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 360.

The Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 360 (OEM) requires 85 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360X and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R9 360. The Radeon R7 360X requires 35 Watts more than the R9 360 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R7 360X may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 360.

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
Radeon R9 360 (OEM) is an OEM only, Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Tobago PRO which is essentially a cut-down version of the Bonaire XTX GPU previously used on Radeon R7 260X. It offers 768 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, 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 85W, it requires at least a 450W PSU with one available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 360 (OEM) is a cut-down power optimized Radeon R7 260X. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 260X and the weaker Radeon R7 260.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Strong Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 360 (OEM).
