In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 490X 8GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon R7 360X has a 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 490X, but the RX 490X has 328 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the RX 490X exhibits a 322.4 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 100 MHz higher core clock speed than the RX 490X, but the RX 490X has 112 more Render Output Units than the Radeon R7 360X. As a result, the RX 490X exhibits a 110.4 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 RX 490X was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 360X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The RX 490X has 6144 MB more video memory than the Radeon R7 360X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the Radeon R7 360X has superior memory performance.

The Radeon R7 360X has 104 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RX 490X, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon R7 360X is massively better than the RX 490X.

The Radeon RX 490X 8GB has 6144 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R7 360X has 896. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R7 360X is 876. The RX 490X having 5268 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 490X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon R7 360X.

The RX 490X transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon R7 360X. This means that the RX 490X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon R7 360X.

The Radeon RX 490X 8GB requires 250 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 360X requires 120 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the RX 490X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R7 360X. The RX 490X requires 130 Watts more than the Radeon R7 360X to run. The difference is significant enough that the RX 490X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon R7 360X.

System Suggestions
Radeon RX 490X 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
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.
