VisionTek Introduces Radeon R9 285 Graphics Card

New $249.99 MSRP high-performance card outperforms NVIDIA GTX 760 while offering Mantle and DirectX 12 support, 4K Ultra HD support, and realistic audio via AMD TrueAudio Technology

September 2, 2014, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®), a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs®, today announced the VisionTek Radeon™ R9 285 graphics card. The new, best-in-class card features up to 945MHz clock speed, 2GB GDDR5 RAM, support for 4K Ultra HD 4K gaming, realistic audio, and 3DMark® Fire Strike scores that beat the NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ 760.


Designed For Serious PC Gamers
Specifically designed to enable PC gamers to play the most demanding games at maximum detail better than any card in its class, the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 is loaded with the latest technology advancements in Graphics Core Next Architecture, including AMD Eyefinity™ Technology, DirectX® 12, and Mantle support.


Best-in-Class: Outperforms GTX 760
To compare the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760, 3DMark Fire Strike, the world’s most popular gaming benchmarking tool, was used to determine each card’s overall score in two demanding settings, Performance and Extreme. In both instances, the VisionTek Radeon R9 285 significantly outperformed the competition1:


3DMark Fire Strike Performance Setting Overall Score:

  • R9 285: 7066
  • GeForce GTX 760: 5650


3DMark Fire Strike Extreme Setting Overall Score:

  • R9 285: 3513
  • GeForce GTX 760: 2774


See What You’ve Been Missing with 4K Resolution
The VisionTek R9 285 supports 4K Ultra HD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution, which is 4x the resolution of 1080p. Typically, configuring a graphics card for use with a high resolution monitor must be done manually. However, AMD's Catalyst™ Graphics Drivers will perform automatic "plug and play" configuration of supported 4K Ultra HD displays. Further simplifying the ability to use 4K displays is the card’s use of AMD Eyefinity technology which can span multiple monitors into one large panoramic display.


Hear What You’ve Been Missing with TrueAudio
With an onboard audio processing chip powering AMD’s TrueAudio technology, the VisionTek R9 285 can deliver accurate 3D surround sound within games and special audio effects like reverbs and room simulations while reducing CPU load. Now you can hear more real-time voices and situational sounds in-game with any and all audio hardware already owned.
