Having bought the 380 back in early 2017, it's held up well. 1080p, high in most instances. I'm not a Triple A gamer, therefore it may not hold up greatly with modern titles. I feel as though I could've invested my money far better, though this little beast is what has made me support AMD with their low-mid range of cards

Bought a few years ago for like 200€, still plays every game on mid to high settings.

It overclocks like a beast! my R9 380X is clocked at 1250Mhz

Got the card really cheap and it's still going strong today on games like black ops 4 & BF5 with little to no issues

you do not need oc 380x because stock 380x faster than oc 960. I buy card to play games, not to play with oc to win 2-3 fps with nvidia

Amazing in 2015

It is a very odd card indeed, pretty much the only in its price point. The value-per-FPS really shines, even compared to an R9 390.

Pretty Good Value for quoted specs
