Sapphire is currently preparing six Radeon R9 285 graphics cards (2GB, 4GB and ITX models).
Does anyone still remember when I said R9 285 will be available in ITX form factor? Well, Sapphire just gave us the first model.
Sapphire Radeon R9 285 ITX Compact will be available in two flavors, the first one is overclocked and the other is not. The OC Edition has just 10 MHz higher clock, while the slower model runs at reference 918 MHz. Both cards have its memory clocked at 5.5 GHz. The interesting feature is dual-BIOS switch, which allows you to enable UEFI mode if you wish.
Radeon R9 285 is equipped with Tonga processor which sports 1792 cores, 112 TMUs and 32 ROPs. Most cards feature 2GB GDDR5 memory across 256bit interface, although some cards will feature 4GB buffers.
Sapphire’s ITX Compact is expected to be available at launch. AMD will officially introduce R9 285 cards to the market on September 2nd.
