Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
The Fiji is a Second Generation GCN GPU. It offers support for HBM-1 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Open GL 4.5 and the acclaimed Delta Compression Algorithm which may decrease bandwidth consumption by up to 30%, in most games.
Fiji XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.
The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-1 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface.
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, and because the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, 4GB might be a bottlenecked and Performance could be better, were the Frame Buffer larger.
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB competes with GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB and both are available for $649.
Benchmarks However Indicate that GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is still faster than Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB, even at 4K, whereas as the resolution goes down, the performance gap between the latter and GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB increases and at 1600x900, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is only as fast as the weaker GeForce GTX 980.
Considering Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB offers practically no overclock potential (operating memory clock can't even be increased), consumes slightly more energy than GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB, costs the same price and performs worse, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB ends up being one of AMD's worst releases of the last years and given the hype built, probably the most disappointing.
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Damn. AMD did it again. Making completely better hardware. HBM-1 is great! I bet Nvidia will start using it, or will they stick with GDDR5X?
Was able to get mine for $320 on ebay. With the driver updates and memory/voltage unlocks it is very powerful. Able to OC core to 1200mhz from 1050mhz and memory to 600mhz from 500mhz. I had previously upgraded to a 1070 but sold it for $, benchmarks the 1070 was way better, but my primary game is WoW and there was virtually no difference(5-10fps) in most areas.
3% Better :)
with some tweaks this gpu can beat titan x
Haha. It says my GPU is 8% more powerful… Good ol' Game Debate.
I'm planning an upgrade next week to this GPU. I hope my CPU will do the job, it should.
Planning to use it on a 1440p@60hz screen.
Should I upgrade to the fury x or wait for the fury x2 to release?
(I plan on upgrading to a 4k monitor later as well)
This is 81% better than my GPU. :)
Wow, this GPU is like twice as fast then nvidia 980. Just take a look at those specs, it destroys even Titan X.
I dunno why GD say nvidia are better than this :P
I may not have a true fury x, but I can unlock at least half of the CUs on my Fury Tri X
