Introduction

We all know that SAPPHIRE has some of the best AMD Radeon video cards on the market, but what about the new mid-range Radeon R9 380X? Yep, SAPPHIRE has done it again with its Nitro Radeon R9 380X 4GB card, with some awesome performance, slick aesthetics, and all wrapped in a great package.

The AMD Radeon R9 380X is the perfect GPU for 1080p and 1440p gamers, offering 60FPS in most titles without a problem. SAPPHIRE ups the ante with some overclocking on its Nitro Radeon R9 380X, as well as silent operation and a back plate which keeps the rear of the card nice and cool through those night-long gaming sessions.

Quick Specs

The Radeon R9 380X features 2048 stream processors, based on the 28nm process - with none of that changing from brand to brand, so we have the same 2048 SPs and 28nm process here on the SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon R9 380X.

But, SAPPHIRE has overclocked the 4GB of GDDR5 RAM as well as the GPU itself, which should result in some decent performance. The cooling system on the Nitro Radeon R9 380X is impressive, too - which is something I'm looking forward to testing.

Availability & Price

The SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon R9 380X 4GB is on Amazon right now for $249.99, making it a very good buy for under $250. Considering how good it is at 1080p and 1440p - as you'll find out later in the review - $249 is a great price.
