In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 370X are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R9 370 (OEM).

The Radeon R9 370X has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 370. This results in the Radeon R9 370X providing 20.8 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon R9 370X has a 75 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 370 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the Radeon R9 370X providing 2.4 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon R9 370X was released less than a year after the R9 370, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R9 370X and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon R9 370X and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) are the same, which means the Radeon R9 370X and the R9 370 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

The Radeon R9 370X has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) has 1024. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon R9 370X is 1142 and the actual shader performance of the R9 370 is 849. The Radeon R9 370X having 293 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon R9 370X delivers a noticeably smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 370.

The Radeon R9 370X requires 180 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 370 (OEM) requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 370X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 370. The Radeon R9 370X requires 30 Watts more than the R9 370 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the Radeon R9 370X to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R9 370.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 370X is a Performance Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
Radeon R9 370X Features a GPU Codenamed Trinidad XT which is a First Gen GCN GPU. It is essentially a Pitcairn XT GPU like seen on Radeon HD 7870. As a result, it doesn't support for modern technologies like TrueAudio, ZeroPower or Powertune.
Trinidad XT has 20 Compute Units Unlocked and offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Initially Clocked at 1000MHz and goes up to 1050MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 110W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
Performance is identical to Radeon R9 270X.

System Suggestions
Radeon R7 370X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Performance Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Radeon R9 370 (OEM) is, an OEM only, Performance Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Pitcairn PRO which is was previously used on Radeon HD 7850. It offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 925MHz and goes up to 975MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with two available 6-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 370 (OEM) is essentially a fast Radeon R7 265. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 265 and the faster Radeon R7 270.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest Quad Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 370 (OEM).
