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.
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.
While the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X was officially announced yesterday, a lot more details on the card came out last night when many people were able to see the card taken apart and much more. The first thing that I want to talk about is the cooling system because this is part of the card that we really did not know much about, besides that fact it has a 120 mm radiator.
During AMD’s presentation yesterday they mentioned a dual Fiji card, although they didn’t show it. Later that night they showed it at a presentation at the PC Gaming Show and I do have to say it is quite impressive!
The high-end Radeon R9 Fury Series graphics cards are here. These cards are the Radeon R9 Fury X and the Radeon R9 Fury. The first card to launch will be the Radeon R9 Fury X, which is the liquid-cooled version that we have been showing you leaked of for weeks now.
AMD held their live event today and while we were expecting Fury cards, one card shown at the event was very impressive and might change the game for AMD. It was the Radeon R9 Nano, which is a Fiji-based product with high-bandwidth memory that is a 6-inch air-cooled card!
As we already mentioned AMD’s Radeon 300 series has already been on sale at Best Buy and at retailers overseas. Kind of funny since these cards have not even been officially announced yet. Since many people already have their hands on these cards they have been testing them and one person did a tear-down which revealed as expected that the Radeon R9 390X is simply a Radeon R9 290X rebrand.
The guys over at PC Perspective have leaked the best photos we have seen of the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. These photos are the most detailed and they actually show the card and radiator in one shot. The sample that is being shown looks more polished than the other versions we have seen and could possibly be the final version of the card.
