The Radeon R9 380X is a mid-range card aimed at 1080p gamers, with 1440p gaming in its sights if you don't want to game at 60FPS. ASUS hasn't changed much on its R9 380X STRIX, but we do have a better cooler and some overclocking potential with this card.
The ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX has the same 128 TMUs, 32 Compute Units, and 32 ROPS as the reference card. We have the same display connectivity as the reference design from AMD, too.
The cooling side of the R9 380X STRIX is where ASUS should excel, deploying its DirectCU II cooler that is 20% cooler, and 3x quieter than reference designs.
If we look close, there's a chunky as hell heat sink on the R9 380X STRIX which should keep the GPU, VRAM and VRMs nice and cool.
Another look, this time from the front of the card.
And again from the rear of the R9 380X STRIX, where we can see the heat sink hanging off of the edge.
An elaborate heat sink keeps the R9 380X STRIX cool.
