Radeon R7 370 Game Requirement Analysis
Radeon R7 370 is a Fast-Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) 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.
It equips a GPU Codenamed Trinidad PRO which has 16 Compute Units activated and thus offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is Initially Clocked at 925MHz and goes up to 975MHz, in Turbo Mode.
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.
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.
Radeon R7 370 2GB is essentially a faster, power optimized Radeon R7 265 2GB.
Its release Price of $149 is what makes it a very competitive Graphics Card because its performance is even beneath the Very Old Legacy Radeon HD 7870 and the GPU is not 1080p gaming capable, considering today's gaming market.
Radeon R7 370 2GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Decent Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
