What would 2 R9 380's be equal to?

Hulkbert
Go to solution Solved by RagnarokDel,

I might be adding another gpu to my build . I want to know if it might be better to simply get a better gpu rather than using crossfire.

In games that crossfire well, about equivalent to a 980 TI otherwise closer to a 970 or 980 at 1080p

Get the better single GPU, a 390/X would be a much better investment.

The possible CF Problems are not worth more Frames. Get a better single GPU.

Congratulations, you didn't read the rest lol

 

Congratulations, you don't understand the concept of value and cost.

What? A single 390/X will be much better for them as they don't have to worry about the extra heat, extra power consumption, and whether or not the game they want to play supports crossfire. Or do I have to post Jayz video where he crossfired 380xs and Battlefront ran worse?

And you can sell your current GPU, you know that right? I got retail for my 390.

If anyone asks you never saw me.

Well it seems OP already has one of the cards so I think another is a better investment overall from a performance standpoint.

 

Obviously it doesn't work this way but as a rough idea 2x1792 cores is significantly better than 2560 or 2816 cores in the 390(x) considering another 380 costs less

The problem is that is only in games with crossfire support, and those are few and far between. If they sell the 380 they have they will have to add less money to get the 390 that will perform better in all the games they play.

He already owns one. Why sell it for 180 and spend another 300 to get a worthwhile GPU?

Yep, it happened. You went full mental. Never go full mental.

I got over 300 for my 390, but even it they only get 180 for the 380 it's only another 140 for a 390. They literally save money getting the single card while not having to worry about all the problems crossfire brings with it.

I was thinking along the lines of a 390X.

They've come way down. I saw the Nitros going for under 400 last week. Hell, just over 400 gets you the new Nitro Fury, though the Fury sucks compared to the 390x at 1080p.

A crossfire of r9 380 is pretty much in the middle of a Fury X and a 980ti in terms of performance.

It's is worth if you already have a r9 380 4gb and will buy another 4gb, and if prices or availability of top end gpus make the crossfire worth. But if you own a 2gb or you can get a 390x, Fury, 980 or 980ti for a reasonable price, go with a single top gpu.

yes. 680 < 7970 = 380. I have a a gtx 690 which is dual 680s that are downclocked and its within 10% of a 980ti

Well, some games don't really support SLI or crossfire. So, if you play games that support crossfire, go with another 380. But if you want a single card solution to avoid some issues with SLI/crossfire as sometimes sli or crossfire don't really help in some games, a 390 would be a good step up.
