Runs all games at maximum settings. Very nice card. Framerates range from anywhere from 60 to 150

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

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

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.
