Overview
Radeon R9 380X 2GB is a Performance Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
Radeon R9 380X equips the GPU Codenamed Antigua XT which is a GCN 1.2 GPU and has 32 Compute Units activated, offering 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 970MHz.


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 1425MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 190W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
Essentially, Radeon R9 380X is a Power Optimized Radeon R9 280X. As of November 2015, Radeon R9 380X has no Direct Competitor because the awaited GeForce GTX 960 Ti is yet to be released.

I don't understand why AMD adopted Delta CC on this GPU and reduced its bandwhidth to 256-Bit… In the theory is was done to reduce TDP (250W vs 190W) without loosing performance, but real consumption tests stated that both GPUs have similar power consumption, and in some games the 380X consumes MORE, WTF?

Hey guys, i just wanted to ask if my processor can handle two of those r9 380x using crossfire, or if it would be a bottleneck. also, do you recommend buying another r9 380x for crossfire purposes?

For your resolution CF this GPU is completely overkill, and if you plan VR, sell your and take RX 480 8GB/GTX 1060/GTX 980+, and as longer you have an six-core FX, then are no avaliable AM3+ CPUs that will give you more gaming performance.

If they are going to be the same price where you live, then definitely the RX 470. However, if the R9 380X drops in price (people selling them used, seller liquidation) then the 380X will still be a good buy if price significantly.

Well actually it's an opportunity of exchanging it
Had heard the R9 380/380x is pretty much stronger and that 4gb vram is really tempting
Thanks for the help!
