Eyefinity 5

Get the Whole Picture

Supporting multiple independent display outputs simultaneously, AMD Eyefinity technology delivers innovative graphics display capabilities enabling massive desktop workspaces and ultra-immersive visual environments for the ultimate panoramic computing experience

AMD Mantle

From a game developer’s point of view, creating games for the PC has never been especially efficient. With so many combinations of hardware possible in a PC, it’s not practical to create specialized programming for every possible configuration. What they do instead is write simplified code that gets translated on-the-fly into something the computer can work with.

True Audio

Your games now sound as good as they look

With AMD True Audio the expectations of gamers have never been higher. Graphics quality and processing speed have advanced rapidly, and the games of today are light years ahead of those from just a few years ago. But advancements in game audio have been more sporadic and less widely adopted.

Sound is a critically important part of the immersive experience for gamers and sound engineers are eager to advance their art, but they haven’t enjoyed the same kind of attention that continually drives graphics improvements.

Until now.

A dedicated digital signal processor (DSP) is built in to the AMD GPU core. That’s a hefty dose of processing power committed just to generating immersive soundscapes. That doesn’t just enable new and exciting audio features in games; it also saves CPU cycles that can be used for other tasks.

CGN

GCN ARCHITECTURE

2nd Generation GCN Architecture for AMD's unified graphics processing and compute cores that allows them to achieve higher utilization for improved performance and efficiency

PCI

CROSSFIRE

PCIe 3.0 8GT/s bit rate effectively delivers 985 MB/s per lane, double the PCIe 2.0 bandwidth. The new R9 285 does not use a dedicated bridge connector as all traffic is handled by the PCIe bus.
Increase your gaming performance up to 2x with AMD CrossFire technology, 2.75x for TriFire configurations, or 3.75x with QuadFire configs.

AMD APP ACCELERATION

Remarkable speed and reliability

AMD Radeon™ GPUs with AMD App Acceleration let you run multiple applications at the same time with remarkable speed and reliability. AMD App Acceleration can help reduce slowdowns and stuttering in intensive, media-rich applications. Powered by a set of innovative hardware and software technologies working in concert behind the scenes. AMD App Acceleration gives you enhanced speed and performance beyond traditional graphics and video processing. You can multitask more efficiently and more confidently

EfficiencyAMD POWERTUNE & ZEROCORE

Efficiency

It's important that great performance and great image quality doesn't come at the expense of a high power bill. Products with the GCN Architecture feature reduced power consumption in the "idle" state.
By dynamically managing the engine clock speeds based on calculations which determine the proximity of the GPU to its TDP limit, AMD PowerTune allows for the GPU to run at higher nominal clock speeds in the high state than otherwise possible

UEFI BIOS support

Secure boot

UEFI Secure Boot was created to enhance security in the pre-boot environment. Without UEFI Secure Boot, malware developers can more easily take advantage of several pre-boot attack points, including the system-embedded firmware itself, as well as the interval between the firmware initiation and the loading of the operating system.

Fast boot

When you turn on the computer, the first thing that happens is the system's firmware boots up and gets the basic computer hardware ready for the operating system. On a modern Windows 8 computer, the establishment of the hardware session is a much quicker operation than on older systems because the UEFI system is much more efficient than the BIOS system. To complete the hardware session, the operating system enumerates all available hardware and loads the appropriate drivers, thus ensuring that a solid hardware session is available.

Once the hardware session is ready, the operating system begins its resume operation. Since the resume operation consists only of restoring the kernel session, rather than restoring both the kernel session and the user session, the resume operation can occur much quicker. In addition to this, the resume operation gets a boost from the fact that the operating system is now designed to take advantage of multiple CPU cores when it comes to processing the hibernation data file. (The old resume process only used one.)
