Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good 1080p performance
The Radeon R7 370 offers solid performance in games on medium settings and a 1080p (Full HD) resolution. For example, this graphics card has an average FPS of 56 frames per second in GTA V, on very high settings. In Battlefield 4, an average FPS of 55 is achieved.
The R7 370 is one of the cheapest GPU's in AMD's 300 series and is especially inexpensive after a $20 dollar rebate. For budget gaming builds, the R7 370 isn't a bad option.
Con Consumes a lot of power
As the R7 370 is based on an older GPU, power consumption is definitely on the higher side. The GPU requires a single 6-pin connector. Power consumption is especially high during an idle situation: a test system with the R7 370 draws 115 watts over power. For comparison: the exact same system with a GTX 950 - the direct competitor of the R7 370 - only draws 54 watts. Consumption during load is also quite high at 189 watts.
Con Is outperformed by the GTX 950
In most situations, the GTX 950 will outperform an AMD R7 370. The average performance increase of a GTX 950 is 12%, and a lower power consumption also comes to mind. However, the R7 370 does perform better in AMD optimized games such as Heroes of The Storm.
