10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II 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.

How well will the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition run 2022 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 219 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Running at 1080p this card gets a weak frame rate from Resident Evil 8 with 0 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Days Gone which returns a playable 27 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Far Cry 6 which we saw getting a weak 0 FPS.

We move on to 1440p, and tested Resident Evil 8 which delivered weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we have Days Gone running on Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition which gets L: 53FPS, M: 42FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Far Cry 6 gets L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition running at 1440p is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380X Asus DirectCU II Strix Gaming 4GB Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 54% better and can meet 616 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300, as it can run 309 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 27% increased graphics performance.
