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

The Radeon R7 360X has a 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 380, but the R9 380 has 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the R9 380 exhibits a 48.2 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360X. 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 120 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 380, but the R9 380 has 16 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the R9 380 exhibits a 13.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon R7 360X. 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 380, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The R9 380 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 R9 380 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 380 has 84.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 360X, which means that the memory performance of the R9 380 is much better than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X has 896 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition has 1792. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876 and the actual shader performance of the R9 380 is 1493. The R9 380 having 617 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 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 380 PowerColor PCS+ 4GB Edition requires 190 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 R9 380. The R9 380 requires 70 Watts more than the Radeon R7 360X 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 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
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.
