This is where you can fast forward to the final section of the review, and get a quick recap and points on the ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX.
Great Looks: This is the second card to feature dual cooling setups, giving you the choice of the stock air cooling (which is great), or to go down the water cooling route. ASUS does this with a card that isn't any thicker than a dual-slot GTX 980 Ti, too.
Awesome 1080p/1440p Performance: During all of our testing, we saw 60FPS+ in our gaming and benchmarking at 1080p. Cranking it up to 2560x1440 we saw close to 60FPS, which is great for a $239 card.
Silent Gaming: Any card that lets me game away while it doesn't make noise is a winner in this department. The ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX didn't make a peep during all of our testing, gaming, in all resolutions and tests. Great stuff.
Great Timing for the Holidays: Fallout 4. Star Wars: Battlefront. Just Cause 3. There are so many good games out right now, and this is a new GPU for the mainstream market that AMD should sell quite well in.
Bad Timing: It's great timing for the holidays and all, but so many gamers already purchased the R9 380 or a GTX 960. If AMD had released this card 1-2 months ago, there would've been a huge increase in sales and a greater chunk of GPU market share scooped back from NVIDIA.
