10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 380 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.

Game performance for the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 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. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 200 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Star Citizen and predict it will deliver playable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 30 FPS. We proceeded to look at Resident Evil 8 to see how that compared and saw that it returned a weak 0 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we researched Star Citizen on the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition and predict it will get a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra predictions at 1440p - L: 59FPS, M: 47FPS, H: 32FPS, U: 23FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Resident Evil 8 which seemed weak in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 0 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Grand Theft Auto VI where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 0 FPS. In summary we feel the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition running at 1440p is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition? A great upgrade graphics card would be a RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which has 60% better performance and can run 617 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today. 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 32% increased graphics performance.

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

Overview
Radeon R9 380 HIS IceQ X² OC 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by HIS.

Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 990MHz, instead of 970MHz.

Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1425MHz, instead of 1375MHz.

Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB.
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.

Cooling Solution
IceQ X² is one of the quietest coolers, making the card quieter than the reference cooler. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing, entertaining or working.

Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 2% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 380.
