Beef up your PC for high-resolution gaming with the VisionTek Radeon R9 380X Graphics Card. With its 4GB of GDDR5 vRAM and a 1040 MHz GPU core with 2048 stream processors, the Radeon R9 380X is capable of driving displays with resolutions up to cinema 4K (4096 x 2160). This allows for gameplay in HD and above-HD resolutions and streaming of 4K content from sites like YouTube and Netflix. Not only for gaming, the R9 380X GPU is based on AMD's GCN architecture and supports APIs such as OpenCL and OpenGL. These APIs can take advantage of the GPU's 2048 Stream Processors to accelerate parallel computing tasks, taking some of the processing load off of the CPU.
The output panel of this card features dual-link DVI-D, dual-link DVI-I, DisplayPort, and HDMI outputs. The HDMI and DisplayPort outputs support resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160. That resolution, combined with AMD's Eyefinity, can provide an immersive gaming experience using up to three monitors.
To keep this card cool, VisionTek implemented an active fansink cooler with two large axial fans. The fans force air through the heatsink, dissipating heat created by the graphics card, lowering the card's internal temperature. Because this kind of cooler recirculates air back into the case, this card works best in cases that have unrestricted airflow.
