With the introduction of Intel’s Z170 chipset the mainstream finally gets their hands on DDR4 memory. If you remember DDR4 was first seen in the consumer market on Intel’s high-end desktop X99 platform. Those kits were all quad-channel kits, but with the Z170 chipset we have dual-channel kits. Kingston’s HyperX FURY line was introduced with DDR3 and made its way to DDR4 in quad-channel kits for X99. Now we have dual-channel kits available in 16GB and 8GB capacities. The HyperX FURY DDR4 modules have a sleek heatspreader matched with an all black PCB, which looks awesome. Today we will be taking a look at the HX426C15FBK2/16 kit, which is made up of two 8GB modules running at 2666 MHz with timings of 15-17-17 at 1.2V. Let’s take a look and see what this kit can do!
HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the addition of 8 GB and 16 GB dual-channel kits of two to the HyperX FURY DDR4 family. The new kits are available in low-latency 2133 MHz, 2400 MHz and 2666 MHz frequencies and are optimized for the new Intel Skylake platform. HyperX FURY DDR4 is the first product line to offer automatic overclocking via plug-and-play functionality for the next generation of high-end desktops utilizing 6th Generation Intel Core Processors (former codename Skylake-S) and the Z170 chipset.
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 first 3DMark benchmarks for AMD’s upcoming Radeon Fury have been revealed by the guys over at VideoCardz. These benchmarks have been taken from 3DMark’s database which has tested and validated several new cards. These tests include 3DMark’s FireStrike Extreme and FireStrike Ultra benchmarks.
With the launch of AMD’s Fury X graphics card being less than a week away more leaked photos of the card have hit the web! These new shots reveal more details about the card and give us our first look at the backplate as well!
Someone with access to a Radeon Fury card put it through the CompuBench suite and submitted its score to the suites online score database. The card is being run on pre-launch drivers and is simply being read as “AMD Radeon Graphics Processor” by the suite, but if you look at the info tab it does say “Fiji”, and more importantly it shows the card has 64 Compute Units.
AMD’s is getting ready to release its flagship Radeon Fury graphics card to combat NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan X. A new report from hwbattle suggest that the AMD Radeon Fury lineup will actually be made up of three different cards, Fury Pro, Fury XT, and Fury Nano.
