How well can the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a performance review on how capable the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 285 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition shows us that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting a weak result of 24 FPS, and then we are seeing Death Stranding predicted to return a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Planet Zoo which is getting 19 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition will run the upcoming game Death Stranding to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was Planet Zoo, L: 37FPS, M: 29FPS, H: 20FPS, U: 14FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which returned L: 48FPS, M: 38FPS, H: 26FPS, U: 18FPS at 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition, this is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition is the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, which is 104% more powerful and can run 899 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 50% better and can meet 683 of their recommended requirements.

Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by Gigabyte.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 990MHz, instead of 970MHz.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1425MHz, instead of 1375MHz.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB.
While 4GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 4GB are needed, such as gaming above 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.


Cooling Solution
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System: The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design. At the same time, it effectively enhanced the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 2% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 380.

I know it requires a 500w PSU but you guys think a 480w will be enough? Cuz I don't have many components in my case

Late reply, but yes, you should be fine if it's a good quality 480w supply. Something that's not built-in or no-name brand. Check here: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/406160-psu-ranking-and-tiers/

Should I get this guys…I need a new GPU for Star Wars:Battlefront. I will have something like a $200-$350. My current PSU is 500 watts, I'll be getting a 8 GD stick and other things for my PC too. I have a 1080p screen

gtx 960 / r9 380 are pretty muchh the same in performance but id still take r9 380 becouse 4gb of ram but gtx 960 is little more power efficient… other hand you can go still with gtx 970 if you have the mony it will serve you next couple of years playing on 1080p but you must to make sure your psu is branded

From what I've seen, it's not really worth to buy the r9 380 over gtx960 at the moment; the price difference doesn't warrant that miniscule performance boost. Furthermore, radeons often don't support all the graphical features in many games (TW3 being an example). Nvidia currently leads in terms of tech & drivers.

I can't find out if it is or not…It's made by Cooler Master if that's what your wondering, It's the RS-500-PCAR PSU.
