ASUS Strix R9 380X Review

3D Mark Vantage

Starting off with 3D Mark Vantage and there are some interesting cards around the 380X performance point. It's a shade better than GTX960, which is the card AMD are targeting. It's also darn close to a GTX680 which shows how quickly technology has marched onwards. However, looking against AMDs own range of Radeons it's behind the 280X, HD7950 and only just better than a standard 280.

What the what?!?!
That thing must be the teenager of the AMD group, it's all over the place!
That has got to be the most confusing set of results ever, especially beating a 980 in one test???Quote

Something is definitely wrong here in these tests. Every other review site consistently shows this card dominating the 960(it's closest Nvidia compeition) and every other card under the 390/970. It's the king of hill as far as it's price segment goes. Also all the reviews i have read aren't using the Strix(from what I have seen so far) and have had pretty good results in OC'ing hitting at least 1110/1600. This could suggest a bad Strix card OC3D received which would point towards the outlier results. It could also be a bad driver install but that wouldn't explain the OC'ing results so I'm thinking this is a bad card. But I would agree with you that these results surprised me too after reading other reviews.Quote

We review what we get. 1110 isnt that much more than the stock clock we got and Id seriously think twice about benching it all again. I can assure though that their were no anomalies with our testing and we have reported it exactly how we should have.

Can only polish a rebrand so much matey. Meh card is meh. /end.Quote

This isn't a rebrand and calling it that is wrong. The previous 280x wasn't even using the same GCN architecture. There are a lot of underhood improvements between them and is why other reviews show this being faster than any other amd card that has 2048 cores but different GCN architectures. In addition to that it has more TMUs in comparison, It also consumes less power(from 30-50 watts depending on where you look) because it's more efficient just to top it off that its not a rebrand. You should know all this technical stuff dude.

Oh and in overclocking, 1110 was a conservative avg. I've seen some hit nearly 1150 and then over 6500 on the memory. All of them Nitro cards. I just think Asus again has made a bad amd card. Alternatively Sapphire could just be getting the best cores atm but seeing as how cool and quiet they are in comparison, it's up for debate on quality between the two. Imo sapphire just have the better card but I'm hoping XFX and MSI reviews are also as good as the Nitro has been.

I'm not saying you are lieing in the review but just in comparison to every other review yours is the only outlier result. It's just weird and strange is allQuote

Its not a bad card at all, its more than capable. The core at the heart isnt all that when tested how we doQuote
