Average Bench: 35.1% (96th of 639)

Based on 57,931 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 6939 Models: AMD Radeon (TM) R9 380, AMD Radeon R9 300, AMD Radeon (TM) R9 380 Series (Engineering Sample - WDDM v2.0)

The AMD R9 380 succeeds the Tonga based R9 285. The only difference between the two cards is a tiny 2% GPU clock increase on the R9 380 but for the most part, the R9 380 is identical to the R9 285. We only have one sample of the R9 380 so far and comparing benchmarks between the R9 380 and R9 285 shows that the two cards are indeed very close. Unlike with several of the other AMD R9 300 series re-badges, the MSRP has actually dropped on the R9 380 to $199. This card could be a strong value contender if prices drop much below $200. [Jun '15 GPUPro]

Great card. I can run most games @ max or almost max on Windows 10. I've seen some max settings here and there that need to be relaxed, but this card is still super great in 2020. I'm using OEM cooling, but have 2 120 case fans, 120 CPU fan, etc. That might be helping! I think Radeon tools is overclocking it for me @ 130%.

Pro gamers avoid AMD for a reason... A bus company with drunk drivers can’t win real users with cheerleaders and cheap marketing stunts.

Great value GPU, the only downfall is that the Gigabyte G1 model has very aggressive power saving which might interfere with keeping 3D clocks at or above base clock.

Exellent performance per dollar, above GTX 960, i use this GPU on Battlefront at Ultra and i got more than 50 FPS. perfect for 1080p budget pc.

Never gave me trouble in all my time having it. A good mid-range gpu for its time. Now outdated and not worth purchasing compared to newer models.


Terrible

Drivers on this trash gpu still don't play x265 video properly consistently, (on ANY of 5 video players using Win7) while the much lower rated GTX 750 does so perfectly on all players tested.

The R9 380 is a very good graphics better than the 1050TI even being 2 years older, it is a little obsolete today with modern games but generally good.

Excellent card. Gains a lot of performance trough overclocking. And the temperatures and power consumption don't go up all that much by OCing
