Being that AMD's high-end Fury X card is expected to launch next week, the rumor mill has been going crazy. Here are some of the more interesting rumors that we've heard over the past week or so!
- CES 2018
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.
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.
The first photos of MSI's upcoming flagship Radeon Fury card have been leaked to the web. Interestingly they show a little bit of a different design than the previous renders of the card we've seen before. The edges of the card are actually rounder in this render and I have to say it does make the card look better.
With all of the tech media at Computex we expected to hear some news or leaks about AMD's upcoming Fiji graphics card. As we talked about earlier the flagship called will be called Radeon Fury and AMD internally is calling it Fury X. Behind closed doors at Computex an AMD partner was showing the card to journalists.
Over the past few weeks we have been unsure if AMD's new Radeon flagship card will be called the R9 390X, or something different completely. According to the latest report by Expreview, the Radeon flagship will be called the Radeon Fury.
