Starting off with 3DMark 11, we can see that our HIS R9 285 IceQ X2 2GB OC manages to separate itself from the Sapphire R9 285 2GB and GIGABYTE R9 280 3GB in both presets.

 

You can see we're actually able to come out ahead of the R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC from Sapphire at the lower resolution Performance preset. However, when it comes to the higher resolution Extreme Preset, you can see the higher-end R9 280X 3GB manages to get a nice little jump.

 

 

3DMark Fire Strike

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1

Looking at Fire Strike, we can see the overclock we've achieved on the HIS R9 285 IceQ X2 2GB OC really helps separate the card from the R9 280 3GB and R9 285 2GB, which sit very close to each other.
