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.

The SAPPHIRE Nitro R9 380X 4GB is priced at $249, with the performance we expected in 3DMark. The bigger, better R9 390X beats it in exactly the way we expected. As for against the Fury X, well, of course, the $249 card is going to fall to the water-cooled beast from AMD.

Heaven - 1080p

Heaven is an intensive GPU 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.

Moving over to Heaven, the SAPPHIRE Nitro R9 380X performs under the R9 390X and the R9 Fury X, but this is what we expected. Synthetic benchmarks are the best way of seeing if your card is performing well, as the metric is very easy to achieve with repeated tests.
