Sapphire ITX Compact R9 285 OC Review

   -   

Sapphire ITX Compact R9 285 OC Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8xAA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

 

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8xAA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

As a compact-sized card meant for use in small ITX form factor builds, cooling has to be optimized and Sapphire nailed it with this 171mm long card. Under the shroud, all the available space is used effectively with the four heat pipe cooling solution. The performance deltas between the comparison field are pretty close in all four tests.
