Out the gate, we've got a great start for the new Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC. You can see against the GTX 760 2GB, it's got no problem coming out ahead, especially at the lower resolution. At the higher resolution, though, everything is a lot closer, and the R9 280 comes out ahead by about 5%.

As we get into something a bit more intensive, we can see the Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC performs well at both resolutions against both the R9 280 3GB and GTX 760 2GB. The difference against the R9 280 3GB isn't much, but in the end, it's a win at both presets.
