AMD Radeon R9 Fury X and Fury Officially Revealed – See Features, Specs, Price and Availability

A few hours ago, AMD officially revealed their fastest graphics cards to date – the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X and R9 Fury graphics card, featuring the company’s latest Fiji GPU and SK Hynix’s HBM technology. The Radeon R9 Fury X is the flagship graphics card in a small form factor-like design and comes with a closed loop water cooling system. Meanwhile, the Radeon R9 Fury is just a trimmed down version of its bigger brother. It still features Fiji GPU with HMB but it will be air cooled instead. Probably we will be seeing water cooled version of the Radeon R9 Fury from different AIB partners. More details below.

AMD Radeon R9 Fury X and Radeon R9 Fury Features

Dr. Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, personally revealed AMD’s latest flagship GPUs, together with other new products featuring Fiji GPU. The Radeon R9 Fury X has 4096 stream processors, 8.9 billion transistors and 8.6 TFLOPs of compute power. The card also features an 8-LED load indicator and has a 1.5x performance per watt improvement compared to the previous R9 290x.

The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X is also said to handle 4K and 5K gaming resolution. Now that’s really something! But the big question is will the 4GB HBM be enough to handle 4K and 5K gaming? We will find that out very soon. The Fury X will compete with NVIDIA’s currently flagship graphics card, the GTX 980 Ti and Titan X.

Meanwhile, its slightly smaller brother, the AMD Radeon R9 Fury will feature 3584 stream processors, 7.2 TFLOPS compute performance and will only have a TDP of 250W. The Fury will be air cooled but, AIB partners might release a water cooling edition as well.

AMD’s flagship graphics card, R9 Fury X, will be available starting June 24 and will have a retailer price of $649 USD. Meanwhile the R9 Fury will be available on July 14 and will be a hundred dollars cheaper, at $549 USD. Currently, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X retails for $999.99 and the GTX 980 Ti retails for $649. If the Radeon R9 Fury X is proven to be the faster GPU across the board, then NVIDIA’s lineup might be in trouble. Probably NVIDIA may counter it with price cuts.
