AMD Radeon R9 380 review: The best US$200 graphics card you can buy for 1080p gaming

Brad Chacos | Sept. 7, 2015
A little bit of extra oomph in the clock speeds help make it the most enticing option for mainstream gamers today.

When Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 960 made its debut, we said that AMD needed to drop the Radeon R9 285’s price to $200 to remain competitive.

As far the specific vendor implementation goes, the VisionTek Radeon R9 380’s stock-clocked offering may not push the envelope as fiercely as some other custom-cooled designs on the market, but the overall package is very clean and competent indeed, and that limited lifetime warranty is pretty darn enticing.
