AMD Radeon R9 M385 technical specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon R9 M385

Summary

AMD started Radeon R9 M385 sales 5 May 2015. This is a GCN 2.0 architecture notebook card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 4096 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.5 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 76.8 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 12.47 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
