Radeon R9 M485X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 M485X 4GB is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (CGN).


Architecture
Radeon R9 M485X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Amethyst XT which is a Third Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Tonga XT GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R9 380X.
Amethyst XT has 32 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.


GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 723MHz.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 125W, it is suited for very large laptops.


Performance
Radeon R9 M485X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M395X 4GB.
Performance is Comparable to the desktop Radeon R9 280. Therefore, even GeForce GTX 970M is still faster.


System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M485X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

nope it's a renamed R9 m395X with slightly higher clock speeds and slightly lower power consumption based on the Tonga architecture.

the specs are the exact same as the r9 380x, but 40% lower clocked, or the r9 M395x, but slightly higher clocked and the same architecture.
