AMD Radeon R9 380 vs MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming: 21 facts in comparison

1. GPU clock speed

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
970MHz
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1784MHz
1100MHz

2. effective memory speed

The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other applications.
5500MHz
Gigabyte Aorus GeForce RTX 2080 Xtreme 8GB: 14000MHz
6100MHz

3. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
190W
AMD Radeon HD 6450: 18W
275W

4. shading units

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
