Overclockers.com Likes Nitro 380X

Overall, the R9 380x does fill in the large gap between the R9 380 and R9 390. Our testing showed that it is much closer to the 380 than the 390, but the pricing between the cards seems to fit with its performance and other competing cards. So we have a card that the price is competitive, its aftermarket cooler is quiet with headroom on top of it, and a solid mid-range performer as expected.

Think Computers say Tri-X 390X is a 9 out of 10

Sapphire has outfitted the card with their Tri-X cooling solution that features their Intelligent Fan Control II which won’t run the fans unless the GPU reaches a specific temperature threshold. This keeps noise down and saves energy. The Tri-X cooling solution is no slouch either, I was quite impressed with its cooling power. The cooler has also been redesigned with a more modern look, which I know many people will appreciate.

LANOC Recommends Sapphire R7 370

With the idea of moving from console gaming to PC gaming in mind, even with AA turned on and the FPS results being between 30 and 60 I think it would be a nice improvement for a console gamer. If you are more sensitive to FPS and you need something over 60 FPS you can reach that too with just a few tweaks in the settings or running a high setting over an ultra setting for example.

ProColockers Highly Recommend the Nitro 370

Sapphire’s Nitro series video cards peaked my interest when they were released. Many card manufactures have decided to change their cosmetic designs on the current range of cards. You can add Sapphire to that list. The gunmetal highlights and sculptured fan shroud on the Nitro R7 370 look more elegant than the more flamboyant designs we have seen of late.

That new Nitro cooler is quite capable of keeping the card cool under load. Some may not like the idea of the card idling with the temperature above 40°C. Most will more than likely prefer silent operation. I know I did appreciate it.

Editor Choice - Sapphire R9 Fury Tri-X OC 4 GB

About a month ago, just two weeks after its flagship Radeon R9 Fury X launch, AMD launched its little sibling, the R9 Fury positioned as a big money-maker for the "Fiji" silicon. To say AMD is at the forefront of new technology is an understatement. The company rigorously pursues and in many cases introduces new technology into the PC consumer-graphics space. AMD's past two memorable technological breakthroughs in this space were Graphics CoreNext, a powerful new number-crunching machinery for the GPU, which made not just AMD but also a lot of crypto-currency enthusiasts a lot of money, and GDDR5 memory in their giant-killing Radeon HD 4870. The past year hasn't been kind to AMD in terms of GPU-market share, which is partly because the company didn't introduce anything major since 2013—all due to competition from NVIDIA with its "Maxwell" architecture and probably also because the company is focusing on high-volume ISV deals, such as new-generation game consoles, and the development of the chip that drives the card we're reviewing today, the Radeon R9 Fury.
