AMD Radeon R9 380 technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R9 380

Summary

AMD started Radeon R9 380 sales 26 June 2015 at a recommended price of 199 USD. This is a GCN architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4096 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 970 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 182.4 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 221 mm. An additional 2 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 190 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 34.12 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
