It's the best demonstration of High Bandwidth Memory and its far-reaching benefits, too.

It's still early days in the life of High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), where we haven't quite seen the performance benefits of HBM.

Report: AMD Radeon R9 380X Coming November 15 for $249

by Sebastian Peak |
GPU Clock: Up to 1000 – 1100 MHz (exact number not known).
Memory Clock: 5500 – 6000 MHz (exact number not known).
No, no you wouldn't because the 4GB framebuffer is simply not enough for anything above 4K right now, which is why we see a few of AMD's marketing pushes for the Fury X using medium detail in some games, as it greatly reduces the amount of framebuffer required.
I'm an enthusiast who loves 60FPS+ gaming, anything below this isn't good enough.
We have definitely enjoyed having smaller enthusiast video cards in all of the Fiji-powered cards, the R9 Nano, R9 Fury, and R9 Fury X. The R9 Nano in particular is an amazing achievement for AMD - price and issues aside.
Starting off with the Heaven results at 4K without AA enabled, the scaling between 1, 2, 3 and 4 GPUs is actually quite good.
Starting with 3DMark at 1080p, we see that the R9 Nano falls right into this spot, where it is 9% faster than the overclocked R9 390X, and 13% slower than the Fury X. Increasing up to the 1440p run of 3DMark, the R9 Nano is 14% slower than the Fury X, while at 4K it is 16% slower.
Starting with Battlefield 4, the R9 Nano is more than capable of delivering an awesome gaming experience with an average of 91FPS.
