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.
After many reviews and feedback from users the biggest issue with AMD’s brand new Radeon R9 Fury X was the noisy pump-block. This pump block design has a very high-pitched whine that many users reported. It looks like AMD has gone and already revised the pump-block design on the card.
So you think having one AMD Radeon R9 Fury X is enough? How about four? Matt Buck who is an AMD Technical Support Engineer has built a system that he calls “The Furious Red Baron” with not one, but four AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics cards!
This week on our Weekly Tech Podcast we talk about the launch of the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X and what we think of its performance, SSDs becoming more affordable, the horrible launch of Batman Arkham Knight and much more!
Yesterday AMD launched their brand new Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. Within 24 hours of the launch every single SKU on the market has been sold out! Big online retailers like Amazon and Newegg are going through the restocking process and the cards are listed as “Out of Stock” on their websites.
We first reported on AMD’s Project Quantum last week and as I pointed out the unit that they were showing at the event was in fact powered by an Intel CPU. This was sort of odd since AMD makes their own CPUs and is a direct competitor with Intel. Well AMD issues a statement this week to clarify that they will offer both AMD and Intel processor options with Project Quantum.
AMD has officially launched the Radeon R9 Fury X today! The card we have been hearing so much about for the past month or so is finally here. The card is specifically designed to compete with NVIDIA’s high-end offerings like the GeForce GTX Titan X and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
AMD’s Radeon Fury X was revealed by AMD last week and someone with access to one (probably review sample) has been showing photos of the card. From what we know this will be the final retail version of the card.
We have only seen performance of AMD’s R9 Fury X in Far Cry 4 and not compared against anything. If you were wondering about performance check out the graph below that shows 4K performance of the card vs the GeForce GTX 980 Ti across 12 games!
At AMD’s presentation at the PC Gaming Show earlier this week they showed off Project Quantum, which is a fully functional PC that packs in two Fiji cores. What is even more impressive than that is the actual size of the unit itself.
