The graphics card is also equipped with AMD HD3D technology that allows users enjoy the most immersive experience possible with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays / glasses / software.

All three models share the latest features of AMD GCN, including AMD Trueaudio technology for the most realistic sound reproduction in games, as well as AMD Image quality enhancement, AMD HD Media accelerator and AMD PowerTune for optimum performance. They offer support for the very latest games and applications with DirectX 12 and OpenGL 4.4 and the on-board Dual BIOS supports both UEFI and legacy systems.

The R9 285 series graphics card also allows triple or quadruple gaming power with AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU technology that enhances gaming performance up to 2x with AMD CrossFire technology, 2.75x for TriFire configurations, or with QuadFire configurations. Moreover, with AMD ZeroCore Power Technology, the graphics card in slave modes will be switched off in idle to maximize the power saving.
