AMD Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition graphics card, when running 2022 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 200 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 30 FPS. We proceeded to look at Dying Light 2 to see how that compared and predict that it will return a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Citizen will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 59 FPS, Medium: 47 FPS, High: 32 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. Next we have Dying Light 2 running on Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition which is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition in your PC? We think this Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 60% better and can run 616 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, which has 32% better performance and can run 309 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.

Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by XFX.

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

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock has been increased from 1375MHz to 1425MHz.

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
Exclusive XFX Double Dissipation Cooling: Dual 90mm IP-5x fans and optimized BIOS fan profile to lower the overall noise level without sacrificing cooling efficiency.Reduced load temperatures by 3° C while lowering noise by on average 7dB while 3d rendering.

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