Hi guys I have the Sapphire R9 285 Dual X. The thing is after overclocking and increasing the power limit by 20% it still throttles and I still have a lot of voltage to play with so I wanted to increase the power limit to 50% which I have done for other R series cards via VBE7. However, since this is a Tonga GPU VBE7 doesn't support the bios file. So is there any software out there for editing the bios of the R9 285?

fx63007850 07-04-2015 11:00 AM

you can up the power limit by reg, have a look at this thread

ok and have you tried to use radeon bios editor or maybe flashing it to another bios if you have a dual bios

I do have a dual bios. RBE doesn't support it. I don't mind flashing it to any bios or even bricking the GPU since un-bricking it would be easy as I have a motherboard with on board graphics.
So far at 1100Mhz with stock voltage here is my 3D Mark 11 Score-

i just tried looking for another bios but there is only 3 on techpowerup, i even had a look for a r9 380 bios

did the reg not work for you

The bios hack seems to have worked. The power limit is now at 50% and throttling has stopped. Thanks you so much smile.gif

The R9 285 isn't that bad of a card. It actually has a lot of potential but is held back by its bios.

ducegt 07-06-2015 04:58 AM

Glad to hear it worked. Thanks for sharing.

There isnt much info on OCing the R9 285. This is the first time Ive seen the power limit increased. The core voltage can be increased beyond 100mv with special settings using MSI afterburner. Ive seen two people using about 130mv to get 1200 on the core. Seen one push beyond 1600 with LN2 cooling! His firestrike score was 10k! That is more than a stock 290.

I havent seen any 380 bios being shared.. could be interesting.

I have a powercolor r9 285 that I will play around with soon. Ill share my results when I am finished.

Good luck pushing yours.

you should upload your bios on here and on techpowerup as there is only 3 bios on there and only for sapphire

for the voltage you can make it go as high as you like by adding some numbers on the exe i think it is

jason387 07-06-2015 06:03 AM

The voltage of the R9 285 is unlocked to +100mv in afterburner and 1200Mhz on the core is easily do-able. I'm hoping to reach 1250Mhz smile.gif. This gpu is really hot in terms of temperature though...

jason387 07-06-2015 06:07 AM

I think sapphire trixx offers beyond +100mv, upto +200mv.

Even with the fan at max it tops out like at 77c

ducegt 07-06-2015 06:47 AM

I can share my bios when I get a chance. I am currently traveling so i have only been researching.

The temperature on a stock cooler is likely going to be an issue . When I OC cpus I want them 100% stable during the most extreme torture tests, but I think we can keep the 285 OCed in games despite not being 100% stable in say furmark.

The shortcut command string is as follows..

/wi6,20,E6,19

Credit to sidewinder and AMDmatt for sharing this.

The number 19 can be changed to change core voltage. It is a hexideicmal number. Each decimal number is a 6.25mv step. I dont advise trying this unless you are certian you understand this.

jason387 07-06-2015 07:08 AM

What's the max temp that you have seen on your 285 ducegt? Have you managed to edit the bios via software?

ducegt 07-06-2015 10:13 AM

I dont remember very well to be honest. I was able to run furmark for 10 hours at 1046/1500 with default voltage and fan control.

No I havent changed anything with the bios. My bios is the original. It seems we can change everything with software (without editing the bios) but It still would be nice to edit the bios like I use to with a 5850.

I've edited the bios for all the cards that I've used. I've managed 100Mhz at stock voltage so far.

ducegt 07-08-2015 06:50 PM

I haven't had much luck. I updated drivers to 15.7 which were released today before doing 25 tests at various settings.

I did the registry hack to set power limit at 50% but it doesn't seem to do anything. The highest benchmark score I got was with +70mv 1100/1500.

I was able to bench at 1142 +150mv, but my score was considerably lower. At 1200 I had artifacts with +150mv and didn't push any further.

Temperatures peeking at 85C with fan on 100%. Ambient of 26C. 19% gain from my stock to best OC in 3dmark vantage. 5.7% gain in catzilla 1.4.

I'm facing the very same problem, the temps are beyond anything I would feel comfortable with. I have even re-applied the thermal compound. This is all done in an air-conditioned room while maintaining an ambient temp of 20c. The highest benchmark I could attain is at 1170Mhz with 100mv- http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/10027965

What I've noticed is that the board power is limited and anything over this leads to throttling even while increasing voltages. If I were to increase voltages further to +150mv with 1200Mhz, even if it can run at that frequency, it will throttle due to board power and ultimately give me a lower score. Temps were hitting the high 80's with me as well.

ducegt 07-08-2015 08:36 PM

Bummer.

I use win7 without sp1 so i cant run firestrike. What is your score at stock settings?

I wonder if a 380 bios would allow us to OC more...

I will run it at stock and post back. +50% on the power limit isn't enough. We need like +100% to run 1.35v which trixx allows.

Thats a 24% gain on gpu score. Not bad.

Remember when you changed 14 to 32 in regedit? Changing it to 64 would be power limit 100%.

I just did that. Even with +200mv I get artifacts and crash at 1140 and higher.

Really? Wow thank you. I'm going to do that now. Cause above 1160Mhz I get throttling. I'm stable at 1160Mhz with +100mv in MSI Afterburner.

I will be sharing my BIOS. I will have approximately 4 hours to do what ever you want me to with this card.

I will be putting it under water right off the bat (With an Alphacool Nexxos GPX solo) and fan for the VRM.

I could even stream it if you guys want xD Forgot that I down graded my internet, it's no longer fast enough.

jason387 07-09-2015 06:32 AM

Hahaha. We both could be. This card is very capable and often underestimated. Its mainly limited by its board power and lack of software support when it comes to bios editing holds it back quite a bit.

jason387 07-09-2015 07:34 AM

Setting it to 64 doesn't increase it to 100%. Have you managed to do it before ducegt?

ducegt 07-09-2015 07:37 AM

Good luck with the water cooling.

What brand memory are on your guys cards? Elpida for me.

All R9 285's come with Elpida memory. The max OC is 1550Mhz but you may get decreasing returns to scale at 1550Mhz. So I suggest you keep it to 1500Mhz which is what the Elpida Memory is rated for.

Really? 1550 max? Is this a hardware limitation?

Im away from home right now and im not sure that would work. Follow the instructions in the thread. Dont look for many zeros. Change the very first 14 you see.

Also i must correct my earlier post. Each voltage step for me was 5mv with the afterburner shortcut.

Sometimes even after changing clock speeds it doesn't set in and you got to do it again. What is your stock voltage set to??

In afterburner settings where you checked unlock voltage control, change some setting...msi to reference. Also use afterburner 4.0 final.. this is when 285s were added. Let me know if that didnt work out.

jason387 07-10-2015 12:17 AM

I've tried setting in 200mv from sapphire trixx but it makes my gpu unstable. The voltage does set in but becomes unstable at clocks which it was previously stable with at +100mv voltage.

So basically you cannot overclock. So that's what you may benefit with the other bios, 380. TBH, the R9 285 I have hates voltage. I can get 1140Mhz with +40v but need +100v for 1160Mhz. Looks like the limit for these cards are around 1130-1160Mhz. However, they do gain quite a boost in performance and their overclocking performance scales well.

ducegt 07-10-2015 12:03 PM

Just OC with catalyst.

Im thinking its the temps holding us back considering some guy pushed over 1600 core with liquid nitrogen.

I have to agree. I'm hitting the late 80's and not comfortable gaming at those temps. I think the only clocks I can game at is 1100Mhz on the core which I can achieve without any voltage. At 1160/1500Mhz it seems like my scores equal an overclocked R9 280X.

Duality92 07-10-2015 12:19 PM

The first time this card was mounted in a PCI-E slot, it had a universal GPU block (Alphacool Nexxos GPX Solo) with 2x 140mm fans blowing over it.

jason387 07-10-2015 12:25 PM

The PCB of the R9 285 also has two extra points to solder another two pins, thus making one 6 pin into an 8 pin connector.

6-pin is rated for 75 watts, while 8 pins are rated for 150w.

I wonder what kind of sorcery is happening while adding 2 grounds,

The scores still seem good and your scores look very close to a slightly overclocked R9 280X.

Ansau 07-30-2015 03:19 AM

I've been trying to increase the power limit to +50%, but I cannot make it work. I've changed the first 14 I saw, but seems it did nothing.

Has someone managed to make it work?

Hello R 285 / R 380 users. Please help to verify Tonga compatibility for this tool:

It should report core configuration of 285.
Thanks!

It didn't work for me at first after many restarts and attempts it did work. I now have +100% max (put 64 instead of 32)

Which 14 did you change? I don't want to screw it up. (I have an R9 380 4GB G1)

I think for me it was the first one I found, it was link on the third line if I remember correctly.

If you've backed up your registry, if it doesn't work, reload the original and try another 14.

I have backed it up just in case :-)

Seems to be working just fine. I'm using a combo of OC Guro II and MSI Afterburner, as for some reason in Afterburner the clocks are only showing 450 for the core.. so I'm guessing it is thinking the desktop 300mhz is the base clock or something.

Anyway... I'm running +40mv and +40 power limit. Clocks at 1150/6000 with no issues.

Just did some quick heaven runs at 1680*1050 (my max res unfortunately), on ultra tessallation, 8x aa, 16x AF etc (max everything basically).

Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0 @ STOCK with Power Limit increased + 40% and volts + 40mv (because I forgot to remove the voltage increase when running stock clocks).

FPS:
39.9

Score:
1671

Min FPS:
19.1

Max FPS:
74.2


Unigine Valley Benchmark 1.0 @ 1150 / 6000 with Power Limit increased + 40% and volts + 40mv

FPS:

Score:
1804

Min FPS:
16.2

Max FPS:
82.0


I'm running a 7850K APU. currently at 4.2Ghz and 1600Mhz ram (instead of my normal 4.5Ghz and 2400Mhz RAM) because I was having some bizarre issues with freezing in windows lately)

Scougar 07-30-2015 01:24 PM

I would have settled for a cheap 285 but as it only had 2GB I thought better of it. I'm glad I got the 4GB card.

I would be interested to see what a crossfired 4GB 380 would do, but at that point it would probably be more sensible to get a 290/390.

I will definitely start pushing this G1 and see what it can do. If I can get the bios uploaded for it I'll let you know :-)

RaduZ 07-30-2015 02:50 PM

Here are my scores for my R9 285 Dual X from sapphire.
Performance
http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/10115608

Firestrike
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5558101

This is my day to day summer OC that I use 1100/1500 with +45mv and +20% power limit.

After reading what you guys posted I decided to try and push my voltage to 100mv and see what I can get... weirdly enough I could not even get 1130 without artefacting in Firestrike. Now comes the weird part, at 55mv it is totaly stable at 1130... (i went from my normal OC and started to increase the freq bit by bit).
I saved my progress so far and I will try to tweak it more once I have some time.thumb.gif

Scougar 07-30-2015 03:37 PM

Clock the core before you clock the memory. Also, when benching, keep an eye on the gpu frequency as it might be throttling, if it is then up the power limit (see the overclockers.co.uk link on first page.)

Hi, just doing a clean install of Windows 10 then I will give this a go.

Posted in that thread. Mine is hardware locked. I wonder what hardware locked actually means though.

Tradition 08-04-2015 11:12 PM

also have a r9 285 XFX double dissipation with stock clock and im able to get 1150/1600 with 100mv
and im getting pretty decent points on 3dmark
10533 graphics

http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5608366

also im busy tring to enable the other streams processors that are disabled when using mantle they enable and i get the same fps as a 280X also in AIDA64 if i go the mantle section it shows 32CU and 2048streams anyone had anyluck?

Tradition 08-04-2015 11:17 PM



just tried to unlock my r9 285 an apparently its hardware locked =/

Wow! Windows 10 has given you a huge boost. The GPU Score has been increased by at least 600-800 points and the CPU Score has gone up as well. This is amazing! Can you try running 3D Mark 11 to see if there are any performance benefits there as well?

Tradition 08-05-2015 12:53 AM

yep got a pretty high score ^^ too bad my 8320 get low physics it uses only 75% during physics test =/ and only 4 core during combined test 3dmark sucks xD

Ansau 08-05-2015 04:04 AM

I tested 3DMark 11 and it doesn't seem to be any improvement. Still not tested FireStrike.

3DMark 11 in W8.1 (gpu 1150/1475, cpu 4.4/3.9"Cache"): http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/9867994

3DMark 11 in W10 (gpu 1155/1575, cpu 4.5/4.1"Cache"): http://www.3dmark.com/3dm11/10134627

Tested now Firestrike and there's a significant boostover my previous record (1135/1595), now 1150/1575:
+223 overall score, +400 gpu score and +100 cpu score.

nice yeah windows 10 gives you quite a bit of performance your score was quite close to mine ^^

I had the same sort of thing happen to me.

Are any of you guys testing your stability with any DX9 applications? I've been stable and artifact free at some clocks in 3dmark11 for repeated runs, but I had some crashing when it came to hour long gaming sessions of CS:GO. More performance just isn't worth occasional crashing for me. These tonga chips are a bit strange... much like the Fury.

Good to see improvement with Windows 10.

Also, I ran the cuinfo app with my card and it says nothing is unlockable fwiw.

Tradition 08-05-2015 02:31 PM

i bealieve its due to power tune 2 that they are strange to OC in furmark at stock my card wont even go to 918mhz unless i increse the power limit só i think the power limit its one big factor in it

Tradition 08-05-2015 06:32 PM

does anyone have a r9 285 by XFX can send me their BIOS i changed mine and now the card is running pretty hot and i deleted the old bios mistaken ¬¬

Tradition 08-13-2015 12:46 AM

any one find a way to edit Bios yet?? ran firestrike at 1150/1500 with 100mv and got that result not bad but i do get some artifacts during the test
r9 285 XFX double dissipation
http://www.3dmark.com/fs/5608366

schmotty 08-17-2015 12:44 PM

Yesterday, I edited the registry and set the power limit to 50%. Then after multiple reboots and and testing I got to 1100Mhz at +40mv. No artifacts in 3DMark 11 or Unigine Heaven.

I couldn't push higher because my PC was plugged into a small UPS allowing only 450 watts. So I shut down and plugged it into the wall...mad.gif

Some how this made Windows crash and I could not boot. Repair installs failed too. I tried everything I could to fix it, but eventually had to wipe the SSD and install Win10 from a thumb drive made off my laptop.

So, before I modify the registry again, is this a common thing I should have known about?

Scougar 08-17-2015 03:29 PM

My first guess would be replacing the battery on your motherboard. I have never heard of anything quite like that though, very weird.

battery on the motherboard? It's barely 9 months old. Bios settings were intact.
