Starting off with 3DMark 11, we see some great performance come out of the Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact. Looking above, you can see in the lower resolution preset the overclock helps push the card past the R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC from Sapphire. Although, when we move to the more intensive Extreme preset, you can see we fall a little behind, and much closer to the R9 280 in this case.

 

 

3DMark Fire Strike

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1

Under Fire Strike we don't see the Sapphire R9 285 2GB ITX Compact pass the R9 280X 3GB at either preset, but you can see we manage to close the gap by a decent margin when compared to the R9 280 3GB. We're also leaning more towards the R9 280X 3GB verses the R9 280 3GB at the higher Extreme preset.
