AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury will be the companies second graphics cards based on the 28nm Fiji silicon. The card has been rumored to be launching in mid-July, but the specifications have been leaked online. AMD will enable 56 of the 64 compute units on the GPU, which will give it 3584 stream processors and 224 TMUs. We assume AMD will not change the ROP count so it will remain at 64. The memory will likely remain untouched at 4 GB of HBM.
The clock speeds on the R9 Fury will be the same as on the R9 Fury X at 1050 MHz core and 500 MHz (512 GB/s) memory. Now we can expect temperatures of the card to be higher as the card will have an air-cooling design, but it is not expected to be above 75C in typical gaming conditions. The different in performance between the Fury and Fury X should be around 10-12%. With this performance it should compete with the GeForce GTX 980.
