Benchmarks: Middle-earth, The Witcher 3

The Radeon R9 380X was good for 55fps in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor which was actually 1fps slower than the old Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and 7% slower than the R9 280X. Still the R9 380X was 12% faster than the R9 380, though we should point out it was also 29% slower than the R9 390.

Rounding out the benchmarking segment of our review is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and here the R9 380X was just 7% faster than the R9 380, though it was 16% faster than the GTX 960. That said the R9 380X was considerably faster than the R9 280X and this is just the third time we have seen this, the previous two games were Dying Light and Civilization: Beyond Earth.
