Share This article Ever since AMD debuted the R9 285 more than a year ago, there’s been speculation about whether or not the chip, codenamed Tonga, was a “full” implementation. Its die size and power consumption have always hinted that there might be more GPU horsepower under the hood, especially after AMD acknowledged that the chip had an additional four compute units that weren’t enabled on the original card.
