Product On Review: Radeon R9 Fury X
MSRP: £550 GBP / $850 USD
This summer is especially significant for AMD. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the launch of Fury X is just another flagship release to counter the forces of NVIDIA - but this Fiji-based GPU brings with it 10 years of innovation and engineering with a shift away from GDDR5 and into the foray of HBM.
AMD's new flagship is designed primarily for high-resolution gaming. Whether it be 4K, multi-panel Eyefinity, or a VR headset, AMD want gaming on Fury X to be the best possible experience and have extended that to the quality of the cooler, enclosure, and assuaging concerns over heat.
SAPPHIRE on their Fury X
The AMD Radeon™ R9 Fury X graphics card is the world’s first total solution GPU with AMD-pioneered High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) on-chip delivering extreme performance for unbelievably “real” 4K and VR experiences.
