In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 370X are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 340 (OEM).

The Radeon R9 370X has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed and 56 more Texture Mapping Units than the R7 340. This results in the Radeon R9 370X providing 62.5 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 Radeon R9 370X has a 270 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the R7 340. This results in the Radeon R9 370X providing 26.2 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 R9 370X was released less than a year after the R7 340, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R9 370X and the Radeon R7 340 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Radeon R9 370X has 150.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 340, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R9 370X is massively better than the R7 340.

The Radeon R9 370X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 340 (OEM) has 384. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 370X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the R7 340 is 255. The Radeon R9 370X having 887 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R9 370X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R7 340.

The Radeon R9 370X requires 180 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 340 (OEM) requires 50 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 370X and a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the R7 340. The Radeon R9 370X requires 130 Watts more than the R7 340 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Radeon R9 370X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R7 340.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 370X is a Performance Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R9 370X Features a GPU Codenamed Trinidad XT which is a First Gen GCN GPU. It is essentially a Pitcairn XT GPU like seen on Radeon HD 7870. As a result, it doesn't support for modern technologies like TrueAudio, ZeroPower or Powertune.
Trinidad XT has 20 Compute Units Unlocked and offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Initially Clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Performance is identical to Radeon R9 270X.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 370X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is an OEM only, 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 Oland XT previously used on Radeon R5 250. It offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 730MHz and goes up to 780MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 900MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it requires at least a 450W PSU and relies entirely on the PCI slot for power.

Performance
Radeon R5 340 (OEM) is a direct rebrand of the fastest Radeon R7 240 Variant, which was never used by any manufacturer. Therefore, it offers exactly the same performance.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Strong Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R5 350 (OEM).
