10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 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.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 247 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Grand Theft Auto VI on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Star Citizen which is 35 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Back 4 Blood performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 20 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Grand Theft Auto VI and predict it will be weak. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. We added Star Citizen to our research and predict it will be playable with a 26 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Back 4 Blood which got 15 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition we get the impression that it is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.
