ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX Video Card Review

Final Thoughts

 

All in all, AMD has a great card in their hands with the Radeon R9 380X, and ASUS has done a great job with their spin on it with the STRIX card. If you're in the market for a new Radeon card that smashes 1080p and can be a formidable opponent at 1440p against NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 960, then you might want to check out the R9 380X.

4K gaming is still out of its reach, but we are talking about a $230 card here. 4K gaming is still a while away from being mainstream, where I think 4K gaming will hit that stride when $230 cards like the R9 380X can do it at 60FPS.

 

 

ASUS has impressed us yet again with the R9 380X STRIX, with the only lacking part of the card being the 2 x DVI ports. This is mainly AMD's fault, but I can see they're targeting mainstream users who might not have shifted up to DisplayPort-capable monitors just yet.

 

Wrapping things up, if you've been waiting for a new GPU to buy for your 1080p gaming, and you haven't purchased a card yet - the ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX is something that should be on your radar. It's silent, is capable of 1080p 60FPS+ gaming, and looks great, too.

The Bottom Line: The ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX is a mid-range card that battles perfectly at 1080p and 1440p. AMD has a winner on its hands here, and something that easily competes against the GeForce GTX 960, and wins.
