The SAPPHIRE R9 285 Dual-X standard model comes with 2GB of the latest GDDR5 memory running at 1375MHz (5.5GB/s effective) and a GCN core with 1792 stream processors clocked at 918MHz. The R9 285 OC model features the enhanced clock speeds of 965MHz for the core and 1400MHz for the memory (5.6GB/s effective).

In addition to R9 285 model, SAPPHIRE also introduces the R9 285 ITX Compact OC edition that is developed specially for small form factor PC systems, this model features a shorter PCB, measuring only 171mm long, and an efficient heatpipe cooler with a single fan. The R9 285 ITX Shares the same GCN core as the Dual-X models with core clocks of 928MHz and memory clocks of 1375MHz (5.5GB/s effective).

SAPPHIRE R9 285 Dual-X  is equipped with the most popular Dual Link DVI (Digital Visual Interface), allowing this card display ultra high resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz.

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.

All three models also support AMD Eyefinity, for multi-screen operation. They are CrossFire ready for accelerated performance using multiple cards in a CrossFire enabled mainboard. No interconnect cables are required as CrossFire is now enabled over the PCI-Express bus.

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.

APP acceleration is also supported for enhanced performance in a wide range of applications using the stream processing capabilities. Typical applications include Video encoding and decoding, compression and multiplexing for media distribution, gaming and video conferencing.
