AMD’s dual GPU graphics card doesn’t end with the Radeon R9 295X2. AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su recently revealed a dual Fiji Graphics card that is yet to be named. For the sake of what to call it, we’ll just name it the “Radeon R9 Fury X2” (not the official name). More or less, this is two Radeon R9 Fury X in one PCB. This and the R9 Nano seems to be the more interesting cards amongst the Fiji powered products that were recently introduced. More details below.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X2 Dual Fiji Could Be the Fastest Graphics Card Yet
Legitreviews was able to get a clear shot at the so-called Radeon R9 Fury X2. You can clearly see two Fiji GPUs with 4GB HBM each and a PLX chip in between. Because of the new technology used, this card is no longer than most high-end single GPU graphics card, like the GTX 980 (Ti) or R9 390X.
Also, if you look at the upper right corner of its PCB, there are only two 8-pin PCIE power connectors. This means that this card will not need more than 375W of power. This is really an amazing graphics card and we can’t wait to see it in action. The performance and power efficiency of the R9 Fury X2 is definitely far compared to its predecessor, the R9 295X2. Well, it better be.
