AMD Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black 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.

What FPS performance can the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition get on latest AAA 2022 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 247 games in todays list.

Running at 1080p this card is predicted to get a playable frame rate from Star Citizen with 35 FPS on Ultra. Then we take a look at Resident Evil 8 which returns a weak 0 FPS. Another title that we looked at is the popular Battlefield 2042 which we saw getting a weak 0 FPS.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition at 1440p and researched how Star Citizen might perform on it leading us to predict a playable set of FPS results. These were, Low: 69 FPS, Medium: 55 FPS, High: 37 FPS and Ultra: 26 FPS. We then checked out Resident Evil 8 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. And another popular game was Battlefield 2042 that returned L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition running at 1440p is the wrong choice for PC gaming.

How many years will the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon R9 380X XFX Double Dissipation Black OC 4GB Edition? Then we would suggest getting a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, as it can run 617 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 48% increased graphics performance. 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 22% increased graphics performance.
