Radeon R9 FURY X2 

First seen on June, 2015
  • 1.1 GHz
  • 8 GB

While the card introduces cool new technology like HBM and watercooling in a compact form factor, its performance is not high enough to conclusively beat NVIDIA's offerings, especially the factory overclocked models.

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.

Reviews Word on the street for the Radeon R9 FURY X2

We dreaded the prospect of a dual-GPU card based on the "Hawaii" silicon, but were pleasantly surprised when the dual-GPU R9 295X2 turned out to be cooler and quieter than single-GPU NVIDIA chips.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


In addition, the card exhibits some coil noise, depending on the game and framerate, but it's definitely there, and combined, the two effectively overpower the fan's noise levels.

AMD has released their first new high-end GPU in one and a half years.

During gaming, I've noticed some coil noise coming from the card, dependent on the framerate.

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.
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.
by techPowerUp!


NVIDIA's GTX Titan X is still 8% ahead, but the performance is extremely game dependent.
by techPowerUp!
So if you are thinking about 144 Hz 1080p gaming, the GTX 980 Ti is the way to go.
by techPowerUp!
AMD's choice for a watercooling solution definitely pays off in gaming noise levels.

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.

Multi card

AMD didn't announce any changes to the ancillaries - the multimedia engine, XDMA CrossFire (no bridge cables required), display controllers with support for DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 1.4a, and PCI-Express gen 3.0 x16 host interface remain the same as on "Hawaii.

no you cant build a bomb with it
why u commenting on everything
That isn't skewed...
No it's not the benchmarks of the Fury X2. Visit Passmark website and you will see it's the results of Fury X. Gpuboss just got it wrong. They might fix it later as I sent them a report of their error.
The benchmark results displayed here are those of the FURY X.
ولك خلص فريتني فري
8,192 bit o-o shut and take my money
Don't you know? Everyone one on the internet is an expert in every field. Remember everyone who swore up and down that NVIDIA was going to release a GTX 980 with 8GB of GDDR5? That never came into fruition lol.
can i play gta 3 on low with that?
Soon My precious! Soon I will Buy this card and I will Buy 2!
