The Radeon R9 280X is an AMD GPU.
This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 19% in our PC benchmark.
The Radeon R9 280X has 3 GiB of GDDR5 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 281 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 384 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon R9 280X GPU core runs at a frequency of 850 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1000 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon R9 280X supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.5 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 250W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
