Features of R9 285
Primed to enable astonishing performance and breathtaking image quality, making it a top choice for gamers who expect the best.
In simple terms, increasing the number of transistors in a GPU has a big impact on the potential performance of a graphics card, but transistors alone are not enough. It takes a truly great design, like the GCN Architecture, to effectively use that potential and turn it into real-world performance.
Mantle and DirectX 12
There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle. Mantle gives game developers the power to speak directly to the GPU core. With such a direct connection to your hardware, game developers are discovering a whole new world of immersion and performance made possible by AMD graphics leadership. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality.
AMD Eyefinity technology
Enjoy the ultimate immersive gaming experience with innovative “wrap around” multidisplay capabilities.Take your PC games to the next level of reality and immersion. Most modern games look great on three screens, and only AMD Radeon™ graphics offer you the ability to play across five screens for an eye-popping gaming experience. Other combinations and configurations with up to six screens work too.1 Create your dream display.
AMD PowerTune technology
Enables intelligent power monitoring to enable higher clock speeds and better performance in your favorite games.

AMD Freesync technology
FreeSync does not need to poll or wait on the display in order to determine when it’s safe to send the next frame to the monitor. FreeSync uses industry-standard DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync protocols to pre-negotiate supported min/max refresh rates during plug’n’play, which means frame presentation to the user will never be delayed or impaired by time-consuming two-way handshakes.
IceQ X² – Cooler, Quieter
With IceQ X², the card is cooler than the reference cooler.
IceQ X² is one of the quietest coolers, making the card quieter than the reference cooler. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing, entertaining or working.
- The super large 2x 86mm dual axial fans draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.
- The Q&C fan blade increases air velocity make cooling more efficiently while keeping noise level at minimum.
- The fan is extremely durable with a life span of up to 70,000 hours.
- The 5x 6mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.
- The extra large 60 x 62 mm copper heatsink provides a large area to dissipate heat efficiently.
- The card also carries memory and mosfet heat sinks to provide extra heat dissipation from these areas.
- The card also features fan control and monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from iTurbo or other softwares.

HIS has won over 1700 awards with AMD graphic solutions from major media worldwide.
Gecid - Scored 5 out of 5
“The new GPU also comes with GCN 1.2 which brings improvements when discussing about image and video processing; we can speak about a new version video-decode block, which was also known previously as UVD (Unified Video Decoder). The new decoder fully supports 4K H.264 video up to 4Kp60; this helps quite a bit since the card does not need to offload new tasks to the CPU.
We could overclock the card quite a bit with the supplied utility and have reached similar performance in the end.”
Madshrimps.be – Recommended Value Product
“The model considered Radeon R9 285 from HIS demonstrated good temperature performance with low noise. Overclock very modest, but overall a great overclocking potential. Good graphics card for the best price, with quality cooling and good frequency potential.”

Tweak.dk – “Score : 9 + Great Product Award”
“We know the R9 285 2GB is pretty strong, and we also know that HIS tends to do a great job when it comes to the IceQ X2 line of cards. Put those two factors together, and you end up with a great performing card, not only in the FPS department, but also in the cooling and noise areas as well.
For the price, the R9 285 2GB from HIS is a nice purchase. After looking at the Sapphire cards in CrossFire, we would also say that buying a second doesn't hurt.
If you're looking at a card that offers good bang for buck and just all round strong performance, the HIS R9 285 2GB IceQ X2 OC is a great option.”
