It is unfortunate that I did not have another comparable video card to test the XFX 370 video card up against it. The only video card I had available with me at the time of writing this review is my Sapphire 290 video card, this video card will only be used as a reference. At no point will I be comparing the two against each other during the benchmarking process. I will be including overclocked benchmark runs of the XFX 370 video card. The CPU will remain in its default state, so we can get a good idea on the level of performance gained while just targeting the video card.
I kept to games that I know are well optimized for us computer gamers. Because of the recent problems that have been stemming from newer games (badly optimized); for instance, Batman Arkham Knight, Dragons Age Inquisition to name a couple of them. All benchmarks will be using a 1920 x 1080 resolution at max details.
List of Benchmarks:
- 3DMark: Fire Strike, Sky Diver
- Unigine Valley
- Star Swarm
- Bioshock Infinite
- Sniper Elite 3
- Tomb Raider
Default settings used for my benchmarks.
I was able to easily max out the core and memory speeds of the XFX 370 video card quite easily with MSI Afterburner overclocking software. Now it is time to see how well this video card does in our benchmarks.
