3DMark Sky Diver is a benchmark that shifts the focus to mid-range video cards. Looking above, you can see it again manages to outperform the R9 280 3GB. This is good, although when it comes to the specification side of things, it really shouldn't come out ahead. Still, it's more expensive, and it's faster. That's what we want to see.

 

 

Catzilla

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1.3

When we look at Catzilla, we can see that the performance of the Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC is again great at the lower 1920 x 1080 resolution. When we crank it up to 2560 x 1600, though, you can see the overall score falls behind the cheaper card.
