Page 3 : AMD Radeon RX 480 Performance In 3DMark - 1080p, 1440p, 2160p
Our Test Bed
Our graphics benchmarking test bed has the following specifications :
3DMark (1920 x 1080)
We started testing the graphics cards using 3DMark at the most common gaming resolution – 1920 x 1080.
The AMD Radeon RX 480‘s 3DMark score for full HD gaming was very impressive. It was, on average, about 38% faster than the Radeon R9 380! In fact, the Radeon RX 480’s pure graphics score was 41% higher than the Radeon R9 380.
3DMark (2560 x 1440)
Then we took 3DMark up a notch to the resolution of 2560 x 1440. According to AMD, this is the sweet spot for the Radeon RX 480. Let’s take a look!
The Radeon RX 480 continued to maintain its performance lead of about 38% over the Radeon R9 380.
These are hardly playable frame rates but it is impressive to note how much the Radeon RX 480 is trouncing the Radeon R9 380.[adrotate group=”1″]
3DMark (3840 x 2160)
In the 4K graphics test, the Radeon RX 480’s performance lead over the Radeon R9 380 slipped a little to about 34%.
There is no doubt that the Radeon RX 480 is ill-suited for 4K gaming. Still, this is VERY impressive performance, considering the fact that it consumes 20% less power than the Radeon R9 380!
