AMD Radeon R9 M380: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R9 M380


AMD started Radeon R9 M380 sales 16 June 2015. This is GCN architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 96 GB / s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 6.45 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 SLI Mobile.
