Sapphire has announced three video cards based on the R9 Graphics Core Next architecture from AMD. The R9 285 Dual-X pairs an R9 core with the Sapphire Dual-X cooler. The cooler uses a multi heatpipe design with two aerofoil fans. The R9 285 OC takes stock core and memory clocks of 916MHz and 1375MHz, respectively, and factory overclocks them to 965MHz and 1400MHz. An innovative option is also presented with the R9 285 ITX Compact OC edition, a card built for small form factor systems. It is just 171mm in length with an "efficient heatpipe cooler with a single fan." The cards will be available starting September 2.
