Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
The GCN 1.2 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture improves memory bandwidth performance which allows AMD to produce Graphics Cards with smaller data transfer rates without causing too much impact on the overall performance. This is done by using lossless delta color compression.
GCN 1.2 also adds improved Tesselation and video encoding/decoding performance as well as DirectX 12.0 Support.
It equips a GPU Codenamed Fiji PRO which has 56 Compute Units activated and thus offers 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of stacked HBM-1 memory, through a 4096-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.
Radeon R9 FURY 4GB competes with GeForce GTX 980 4GB.
Compared to the latter, while it offers more or less the same performance at 1920x1080, it proves to be over 5% faster at 2560x1600 and more than the 10% faster at 4K. Even so, Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is still best suited for 2560x1600.
GeForce GTX 980 4GB is however much more energy efficient, consuming no more than 165W Under Load, while Radeon R9 FURY 4GB surpasses the 200W tier.
Because Radeon R9 FURY 4GB was released for $549 and GeForce GTX 980 4GB is available for $479, it doesn't shine as much as it could, making it only a better choice for those who game over 1920x1080.
Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor (Intel Core i7 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
This card is perfect for 2560x1080p 144hz gaming, and 100+fps 2560x1440p gaming.
the bad thing for people with rent to pay and other bills who make $14.24 an hour (like me)
this card is $500 on newegg.com :/
this GPU can play all of the new releases with no problem.
depending on your CPU…
can this play quantum break at triple 1080p or 1080p 144hz
wow. best card ever made by amd
xfx r9 fury looks great
9% better :p not worthy !
Update (11/07/2015): This Graphics Card is now Correctly Ranked!
230% power consumption for 53% performance upgrade..!! HECK YEAH..!!
deal with it!!
50% better heck yeah
