Test System Specs

Although we collected the frame time data we didn't include it because it's becoming less important for single GPU reviews. Our results showed the Radeon R9 285 being on track with the GeForce GTX 760 -- no problems there.

Also please note that we tested the Sapphire Dual-X R9 285 which is overclocked by 5% and that will inflate our results slightly. Unfortunately we couldn't underclock the card with the latest AMD drivers.
