14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon R9 380 Club3D royalQueen OC 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 Club3D royalQueen OC 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 graphics hardware can run 278 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon R9 380 Club3D royalQueen OC 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title FIFA 20 and saw it deliver strong frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 220 FPS, Medium: 183 FPS, High: 134 FPS and Ultra: 98 FPS. We proceeded to look at Need For Speed Heat to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 23 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 167FPS, M: 140FPS, H: 102FPS, U: 74FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was Need For Speed Heat and that was weak. This graphics card delivered 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Diablo 4 which is predicted to get weak results with a 0FPS on Ultra 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 380 Club3D royalQueen OC 4GB Edition is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.
