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.
AMD’s R9 Nano was announced yesterday at AMD’s event yesterday and on our original post I said it could be a game-changer for AMD and I really believe that. Since its unveiling more information about the card has been released and we have that for you today.
We have been speculating that the official name for AMD’s upcoming flagship graphics card would be called Radeon Fury X, and it looks like we were very close. According to the latest leaked slides the official name of the card will be called AMD Radeon R9 Fury X.
A Reddit user who claims to work at Best Buy has confirmed that the first batch of XFX Radeon 300 series cards have arrived at the warehouse. He said that Radeon R9 390X/390/370/360 were all there and even took a photo of the R9 390X box, which matches up with the XFX leak we posted earlier this week.
A leaked slide from AMD’s graphics update presentation has hit the web showing AMD’s Radeon 300 Series roadmap, I guess if you want to believe the slide is real. The reason I say that is the slide is using different fonts that what we are used to seeing from official AMD slide, but we can’t count out this slide as being real.
The first photo of the reference AMD Radeon R7 370 has been posted on the Chiphell forums. The picture of the card actually allows us to confirm a few different things about the card and that it will be based off a chip that has been on the market for 3 years.
It looks like AMD is not being shy with giving some free samples away of their top of the line upcoming Fiji graphics cards. One such card arrived at the desk of Johan Andersson, Technical Director on Frostbite at Electronic Arts. He posted a photo of the card on his Twitter of what looks like the flagship R9 390X (if that’s what it will be called).
Now with the higher-end GeForce GTX cards being bundled with Watcher 3: Wild Hunt and Batman: Arkham Knight there are some games that you can now get for free with select Radeon graphics cards. These games include DiRT Rally and Grand Theft Auto V and are available exclusively through Newegg.com.
New information regarding the launch of AMD’s R9 300 series has surfaced on Benchlife.info, which has been pretty spot on with their leaks lately. According to their report the AMD Radeon R9 300 series will be launching on June 18th, but we will have to wait till the 24th of June for Fiji XT.
