Club3D R9 285 COOLSTREAM Review

Civilization: Beyond Earth

 

Civilization Beyond Earth is another new Game which I have added to the GPU test Suite, which is a game which showcases not just the R9 285's Direct X performance but also it's performance using AMD's Mantle API. 

As we can see below the R9 285 again performs better than the 7870 Tahiti in both low and high settings. When using AMD's Mantle API we can see that the R9 285 performs much better, gaining almost 10FPS at low settings and over 3FPS at Ultra settings. That is a 6% gain at high setting and a 13.6% gain at low settings.

Noice! I was looking at these the other day, with the future possibility of XFire later.. What is the weight like of the card, is it a hefty beast or a no worries light as a feather slab, sag bothers me.Quote

Well I don't have a set of scales to weigh it but i'd say it is pretty lightweight, I didn't see any sag when it was being tested. Hope this helpsQuote

Wait for the full new releases from both sides bud. AMD usually make great mid range cards and Nvidia might get their pricing right...

Exciting times ahead.Quote
