Radeon R9 380 Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 380 Asus DirectCU II OC Strix Gaming 4GB Edition is a Special Edition of AMD's Performance Radeon R9 380, created by Asus.


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


Overclock: Memory Clock
None.


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
DirectCU II with 10mm Heatpipe: Exclusive DirectCU II cooling technology outperforms reference designs with an exclusive 10mm heatpipe that transports 40% more heat away from the GPU — a first for the industry! The design also includes 1.5X-larger heat-dissipation: this means performance that's 20% cooler three-times (3X) quieter than reference for ultra-stable hardcore gaming with very low noise.
