Our Verdict: For the most part, the R9 380X is still capable of playing modern games, but you would have to reduce settings to sustain those higher framerates. If keeping graphics quality settings closer to ultra or high is important, the is an option for upgrade. The RX 570 is faster by 33% for 1440p gaming. The price/performance ratio is much better for RX 570 .
