Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380 Gigabyte G1 Gaming 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by Gigabyte.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit is now of 990MHz, instead of 970MHz.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock is now of 1425MHz, instead of 1375MHz.


Frame Buffer
The Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB.
While 4GB are needed in a few Modern Games for increased texture detail, the GPU is not powerful enough to work under other circumstances in which 4GB are needed, such as gaming above 1080p and thus a larger frame buffer is mostly a gimmick.


Cooling Solution
WINDFORCE 2X Cooling System: The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design. At the same time, it effectively enhanced the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence.


Performance
Benchmarks Indicate a 2% Performance Boost over the Reference Radeon R9 380.
