In recent weeks AMD lifted the sheets off of its new Radeon R9 Fury X graphic card. Many hardware specialize technology based websites have weighed in their written reviews so if your interested in the graphic card full break down in bench mark numbers and specs, head right over to AnandTech website, they do an outstanding job reviewing hardware. With that said,what about AMD's newest flagship graphic card the Radoen R9 Fury X,here's what you need to know.
The Radeon R9 Fury X graphic card core architecture is constructed around AMD's own Fiji GPU (graphic processing unit), Fiji itself is manufactured using TSMC's 28nm process. The 28nm process die (die is the actual chip) is much smaller than previous generation GPU's. Diving even deeper into the chip, the Fiji GPU is comprised of approximately 8.9 billion transistors and has an actual die size of about 596mm. So as you can see,we have is some serious tech going on within the Fiji GPU.
Main core spec numbers you need to know falls nothing short of impressive, it has 4GB HBM ( high performance memory) fully dedicated memory, 4096-bit memory interface, 500MHz memory speed. The processor speed is equally impressing, a engine clock the reads up to 1050MHz, 4096 stream processors. It offers a peak compute performance of 8.6 TFLOPs, up to 268.8 GT/s of texture fill rate, an insane 512GB/s of memory bandwidth.
To power up Radeon R9 Fury X it will take 2 x 8-pin power connector and 275 Watts of board power. Since so much power is needed to boost the Fury X it's almost certain graphics like this will run rather toasty, that probably explains the attached close-loop liquid cooler that AMD claims can dissipate 500 W of heat. The fans are said to run very quiet and cool under both idle and heavy load conditions.
Benchmark numbers for Radeon Fury X is a clear indication that you have one impressive piece of hardware, one that closely rivals NVIDIAs GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
The graphic card retails for $649 years which is rather pricey, but the high price is expected. You can now purchase the Radeon R9 Fury at Amazon.
