Similar to what we saw with Hitman: Absolution, we can see a good minimum FPS here, but unfortunately the 39 FPS average is just way too low.

AMD Releases Catalyst 15.9.1 to Fix Several Issues

by Scott Michaud |

I wish I could offer more input, but I just found out about it and it seems pretty cut-and-dry: if you had problems, they should be fixed.
We expect to see official details of the R9 300-series of products of which there have been many leaks as well as the final details of the AMD Fury and Fury X products based on the new Fiji GPU.
The experience was smooth though of course there were no indications of frame rate, etc. while it was going on.

AMD R9 300-Series Possibly Coming Soon

by Scott Michaud |
www.pcper.com
The current rumors claim that Fiji XT will have 4096 graphics cores that are fed by a high-bandwidth, stacked memory architecture, which is supposedly rated at 640 GB/s (versus 224 GB/s of the GeForce GTX 980).
That said, they also have cache and other methods to reduce this dependency, but let's just say that, if you offer a graphics vendor a free, order-of-magnitude speed-up in memory bandwidth - you will have friend, and possibly one for life.
