31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the more powerful mid range graphics cards, the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition might struggle sometimes with the more system demanding game requirements. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This PC hardware performance game review for the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition graphics card, when running 2019 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 347 games in the list.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title The Outer Worlds and saw it deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 110 FPS, Medium: 86 FPS, High: 58 FPS and Ultra: 42 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested The Outer Worlds which delivered playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 84 FPS, Medium: 66 FPS, High: 44 FPS and Ultra: 32 FPS.

And for performance contrast the popular Cyberpunk 2077 is predicted to get L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition is going to need to lower its graphics settings to medium on modern games.
