3DMark Fire Strike - 1080p



3DMark has been a staple benchmark for years now, all the way back to when The Matrix was released and Futuremark had bullet time inspired benchmarks. 3DMark is the perfect tool to see if your system - most important, your CPU and GPU - is performing as it should. You can search results for your GPU, to see if it falls in line with other systems based on similar hardware.




3DMark Fire Strike Extreme - 1440p





3DMark Fire Strike Ultra - 4K (3840x2160)





Heaven - 1080p



Heaven is a GPU intensive benchmark that really pushes your silicon to its limits. It's another favorite of ours as it has some great scaling for multi-GPU testing, and it's great for getting your GPU to 100% for power and noise testing.




Heaven - 1440p




Heaven - 4K (3840x2160)




Heaven - UltraWide (3440x1440)




The first benchmark out of the gate has the R9 380X STRIX performing well, beating the GTX 960 in 3DMark at 1080p.


In Heaven, the ASUS Radeon R9 380X STRIX takes swipes at the GTX 960 and wins - with 54FPS average versus 51FPS. It's still a decent distance behind the R9 390X, of course.


Kicking things up to 2560x1440, we find the ASUS Radeon R9 380X hitting its stride, killing the GTX 960 in 3DMark. Things begin to get tighter between the GTX 960 and R9 380X STRIX.


4K is a resolution that is hard on any mid-range card - heck, even the flagship GPUs - but the R9 380X STRIX handles it well in 3DMark. It easily beats the GTX 960 (2GB version, so we're seeing a bigger limitation on the framebuffer here obviously) without a problem.
