Sorry. I have actually spent a couple of hours every night sorting stuff out from my old pc!

The games I've thrown at it so far average 80-90 frames per second on Ultra. The only issue I had at the beginning was some screen tearing here and there, as I'm using a TV, not a monitor.

I've now set the refresh rate at 59Hz and turned V-sync on and it runs at exactly
60 fps continually. That's at Custom Ultra with absolutely everything on and maxed. Thanks to Kila for that tip. ;o)

For the racing games I play, the R9 380 is running them buttery smooth with cracking visuals. No driver issues, no micro stutter, no tearing unless you let the frame rate run free (pointless on a TV). It is extremely quiet considering it is in such a tiny case. It runs really cool too, not going above 63°C in the heat yesterday which I was quite frankly amazed at. I am quite confident that this card will run virtually anything at 1080p in Ultra and still manage close to 60fps. I was expecting a reference type card, but it actually arrived with a Sapphire Nitro 380 4GB with twin cooling fans. Very pleased with that. smile

So contrary to recent claims on the forum, this "re-branded" AMD graphics card is not suffering from disastrous drivers, extreme temperatures, hair dryer fan volumes and is absolutely, categorically, une-f***ing-quivocally NOT running like a dog.

Thank god I stuck to the old fashioned method of researching things for myself.

I don't own Project Cars yet. And we moved on from 4k ages ago. I can't fit anything bigger into the case because of power supply restrictions, remember?

You dish out such fanboy criticism of another manufacturer, then when Kila has repeated crashing issues on his new card, you admit to suffering the same issue. And his cure was nothing to do with your advice either. The truth is they are as good and bad as each other from title to title.

The fact is that you have consistently overstated "problems" with my choice of card, yet it has not crashed/struggled at all. If you want to call me a liar, please do it openly.

These guys think you're wrong too.

You're welcome for the tip but can you please leave my poor recovering 970 out of this wink

That 380 looks great value for money and I doubt you can get better for the money tbh whether you're team red or green!!

Not taking sides here either but let's not forget that nelly was trying to do this build on a sensible budget, yeah given he's not gonna hit 4k with his card but neither am I with my 970 which cost £70-80 more!!
