Recommended System Requirements
Game Radeon RX 480 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB Radeon R9 370 (OEM)

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 480 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R9 370 (OEM).

The RX 480 has a 283 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 370. This results in the RX 480 providing 114.8 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 RX 480 has a 283 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 370 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 480 providing 9.1 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 RX 480 was released over a year more recently than the R9 370, and so the RX 480 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the R9 370.

The RX 480 has 6144 MB more video memory than the R9 370, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 480 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 480 has 76.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 370, which means that the memory performance of the RX 480 is much better than the R9 370.

The Radeon RX 480 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB has 2304 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 480 is 3092 and the actual shader performance of the R9 370 is 849. The RX 480 having 2243 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 480 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 370.

The RX 480 transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 370. This means that the RX 480 is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 370.

The Radeon RX 480 Sapphire Nitro+ 8GB requires 150 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the RX 480 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 370. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The Radeon RX 480 Nitro+ 8GB by Sapphire is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture. It is one of the best RX 480s available when core speed is concerned, yet weirdly has a lower max screen resoloution than it's competitors. It swaps a Display port for an extra HDMI and DVI slot, has their new Free Flow cooling technology and ofcourse, RGB lights on the card.

Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed Ellesmere XT which is a Forth Gen GCN GPU and has 36 SM activated and thus offers 2304 Shader Processing Units, 144 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit runs at 1208MHz and goes up to 1342MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 8GB frame buffer of Fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2000MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate Radeon RX 480 8GB can be almost 10% Faster than GeForce GTX 970 at 4K. However, Radeon R9 390X is still slightly faster, overall.
At 1920x1080, the default rank for all GD Graphics Card, expect its performance to be between Radeonn R9 290 and Radeon R9 290X.

System Suggestions
As the Radeon RX 480 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440 we recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Radeon R9 370 (OEM) is, an OEM only, Performance Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Pitcairn PRO which is was previously used on Radeon HD 7850. It offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 925MHz and goes up to 975MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

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 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 370 (OEM) is essentially a fast Radeon R7 265. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 265 and the faster Radeon R7 270.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest Quad Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 370 (OEM).
