VideoCardz got its hands on pictures of not one but three Radeon R9 285 graphics cards. The site published photos of upcoming models from Sapphire, XFX and HIS, all three with custom cooling solutions.

The exact specifications of the Radeon R9 285 are still unknown, the card is reportedly based on a Tonga PRO GPU with 918MHz base clock, 256-bit memory bus and 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 5500MHz. Memory bandwidth is 176GB/s and the card is equipped with two 6-pin power connectors and features dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. By the way, the R9 285 will be the third card to use XDMA CrossFire so there's no need for CrossFire fingers on these cards.

Availability is slated for later this month but the pricing is still unknown.
