Radeon R9 FURY X 

Released June, 2015
  • 1 GHz
  • 4 GB
7.1 Out of 10

AMD's Fiji graphics processor uses the GCN shader architecture.
by techPowerUp!
The version without "OC" comes at reference design clocks of 1000 MHz and the OC version we are reviewing today is clocked at 1040 MHz on the GPU.

Reviews Word on the street for the Radeon R9 FURY X


9.2
Contrary to intuition, the driving factor for PCI-Express bus width and speed for most games is the framerate, not resolution, and our benchmarks conclusively show that the performance difference between PCIe configurations shrinks at higher resolutions.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

The performance gap suddenly widens as soon as we start looking at lower resolutions; 4K vs. the GTX 980 Ti: -2%, 1440p: -9%, 1080p: -14%, 900p.
by techPowerUp!
Real performance losses only become apparent in x8 1.1 and x4 2.0, where the performance drop becomes noticeable with around 6-10.
by techPowerUp!
This results in a 4% increase in clocks or a slim 2% increase in overall performance at 1440p when compared to the ASUS Strix, which I've been using as baseline throughout this review because it runs at reference design clocks.

Applications

NVIDIA's GTX 980 Ti and Titan X reference designs were far from quiet, and the Radeon Fury X is much quieter during gaming and runs extremely cool, reaching only 60°C in games.
by techPowerUp!
Well, Furmark will run faster, but your games won't.
by techPowerUp!
Sure, there will be lazy game developers that will fill all the VRAM up with unnecessary junk, but those games will be the exception, not the norm.

Gaming

When looking at individual game results, the effects of constrained PCIe bandwidth vary wildly.
by techPowerUp!
This means you can build a compact low-noise gaming PC for the living room that has enough power to play all the latest games.
by techPowerUp!
In gaming, noise levels are very good, much lower than competing reference designs from NVIDIA.

Memory

For any memory standard (including HBM), memory speed/bandwidth and power draw don't scale linearly.
by techPowerUp!
It is complemented by a transfer of video memory from physical chips surrounding the GPU package - over 32-bit-wide data paths, each.
by techPowerUp!
This is what necessitates a new memory standard.

Power

On the following page, we will investigate what gains can be achieved from voltage adjustments to the Radeon Fury, how these overclocking results translate into real performance, and what this means for power consumption.
by techPowerUp!
This configuration is specified for up to 375 W power draw.
by techPowerUp!
Furmark maximum power is definitely a good way up from what we've seen on ASUS' card, but it unfortunately makes no difference in out-of-the-box performance because of the way AMD's Boost technology works.
