The final AIDA64 Engineer test is GPU FPS performance. The little Sapphire ITX Radeon R9 380 manages to stay ahead of the MSI GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V for the Single-Precision Julia test but falls behind in the Double-Precision Mandel test. So far the results are good for this little card, and if it’s going to lock horns with the MSI GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V, that’s a good amount of performance from an ITX form factor card.
Unigine Heaven is next, we always run the Extreme preset for our graphical tests, Direct3D11 and 1600×900 8xAA windowed , it’s going to give any GPU a good test. Here, the little Sapphire ITX Radeon R9 380 manages to come in last, though the benchmark ran well, and had enough power to get up some speed. The FPS average is a healthy 47.4, with a minimum of 22.8 and a maximum FPS of 100.3.
