How well can the Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition run games
22 May 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2020 popular games. This short Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This graphics hardware can run 114 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Doom Eternal getting 26 FPS with the Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition, Cyberpunk 2077 predicted to get 0 FPS and Call of Duty Warzone getting 28 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Doom Eternal on the Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 52FPS, M: 41FPS, H: 28FPS, U: 20FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Cyberpunk 2077 which we predicted will be weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Call of Duty Warzone where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 21 FPS. 1440p gaming on the Radeon R9 380X Gigabyte Gaming G1 4GB Edition is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.
