Sapphire Nitro R7 370 4G D5  Review: A great lower mid-range card
  • PROS
  • 4 GB VRAM with 256-bit bus width
  • Great mid-range card


Performance wise the R7 370 is better than the R7 270X and is neck and neck with the GTX 760.

Sapphire Nitro R7 370 4G D5 detailed review

Competitively priced to counter NVIDIA’s GTX 950, Sapphire’s NITRO R7 370 certainly has one clear advantage over its counterpart – four gigabytes of RAM. This extra RAM lets you experience games in the highest visual fidelity but given that this is a mid-range card, you should expect a drop in FPS as well. While this drop will vary from one game to another, it shouldn’t be that pronounced if you’re running a Full HD setup. If you are the type to wait it out for a few months or years before starting off with AAA games then this card would be ideal since you’ll not only have enough juice to get 40-50 FPS but also more RAM so that you can try out all the mods that must’ve come out since the game’s launch. We say this because even lightly modded Skyrim can eat up around 3 GB of VRAM at 1080p. 

The Sapphire NITRO R7 370 has a pretty decent build quality and is compact enough to fit in small form factor cases which is a plus point for mid-range cards. And with two cooling fans, it isn’t a hot head at peak workload though it could have been a tad cooler while idling. Performance wise the R7 370 is better than the R7 270X and is neck and neck with the GTX 760 so it comes as a good candidate for the mid-range segment. The only problem is that of availability on mainstream e-commerce sites.
