10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Based on current gaming requirements the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition is considered one of the weakest cards and wont meet modern AAA game specs.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Game performance for the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2022. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 176 games in the list.

The Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition graphics card is predicted to return a weak performance on Grand Theft Auto VI at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Battlefield 2042 which we saw got weak frame rates of 0 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 0 FPS under tests.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Grand Theft Auto VI on the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Battlefield 2042 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Far Cry 6 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview

While 4GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 4GB are needed, such as gaming above 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.
