How well can the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. 291 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

The Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Planet Zoo at 1080p of 19 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Need For Speed Heat which we saw got weak frame rates of 24 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Red Dead Redemption 2, which was getting 24 FPS under tests.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Planet Zoo which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 37 FPS, Medium: 29 FPS, High: 20 FPS and Ultra: 14 FPS.

And for performance contrast the popular Red Dead Redemption 2 gets L: 48FPS, M: 38FPS, H: 26FPS, U: 18FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 380 XFX Double Dissipation 4GB Edition is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

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.
