AMD Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 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 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. The Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 220 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

A Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition card at 1080p is seeing a weak frame rate when running Back 4 Blood on Ultra - 18 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on FIFA 22 which is 64 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Far Cry 6 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 0 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have looked at Back 4 Blood where it was weak. The frame rates it scored for the game presets were - Low: 35 FPS, Medium: 28 FPS, High: 19 FPS and Ultra: 13 FPS. We added FIFA 22 to our tests and saw it was reasonable with a 49 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then tested Far Cry 6 which got 0 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.

How many years will the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition in your PC? This Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition card has 12 to 18 months of latest AAA game play left in it before upgrading should be considered

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon R9 380X HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB as this is better than 725 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 58% better performance as well.
