4.Has Double Precision Floating Point (DPFP)
AMD Radeon R9 380
MSI Radeon R9 390X Gaming

Generally, single precision floating point arithmetic deals with 32-bit floating point numbers, whereas double precision deals with 64-bit units, increasing the accuracy of calculations. For GPUs, a double precision floating point (or FP64) is useful for general-purpose computing (GPGPU) such as scientific research, data modeling, as it provides a higher degree of precision when making calculations.
