While it's not by a lot, you can see the Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X CrossFire setup manages to just sneak a win out at both resolutions against all our other setups here. With no surprise, the performances of this setup and the PowerColor R9 280 3GB OC CrossFire are extremely close to each other.

Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark

Since Phantasy Star Online 2 isn't able to take full advantage of CrossFire, you can see that the gains aren't nearly as strong as they should be. Although there is a performance increase and the overall performance is strong, it's not where it should be for a setup like this.
