AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Confirmed SKU Name for "Fiji XT"

The bets are off, AMD's latest flagship graphics card will indeed get a fancy name, and it will be named Radeon R9 Fury X. Korean tech-site HardwareBattle leaked a product flyer with the SKU name, and its catchphrase "revolutionary, inside out." Based on the 28 nm "Fiji" silicon, the R9 Fury X is expected to feature 4,096 stream processors, 256 TMUs, 128 ROPs, and a 4096-bit wide HBM memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory.

The reference-design Fury X will come with an AIO cooling solution, likely designed by Asetek, featuring a Cooler Master made fan, ventilating its 120 x 120 mm radiator. Just as the Radeon R9 290X did away with D-Sub (VGA) support (even with dongles), Fiji does away with the DVI connector. You still get three DisplayPort 1.2a ports, and a single HDMI 2.0 connector. The card has been pictured on the web featuring two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

With GTX 980 Ti's AIB OC results, the Fury X would have probably nothing to use against it but a much cheaper price.

I'm expecting great performance from Fury. There will no doubt be people waiting in line to slam it for electricity used but for enthusiasts the extra 50 cents a month on the power bill are irrelevant unless you run it 24/7 at full load or you pay a ridiculously high rate per kWh.

Looking back, the 290x had 64 ROP's and 780ti had 48. This has 128 to the 96 on 980ti. So up by 100% versus 50% on Maxwell. Surely that should help it pull ahead?

Edit: I have been corrected. They're both 100%. Hey I typed it working out, I'm focussing on reps, not ROP's.

Cooler Master fan? I wonder if it's our new Silencio FP120... That's news, no one in our office knew about this... Source? There have been "leaked" shots of the radiator with what looked like a Nidec Gentle Typhoon AP29/30/31 and even an AP15.

Well this design certainly is new and different that is for sure. Cannot wait to see it in the public!

This is Ferrari of graphic cards. You don't give a shit how much resources it consumes in the process for as long as it's fast. And makes no noise. In this case XD

If highest end is R9 Fury X, then I assume vanilla Fury will be R9 Fury (without the X).

48 - 96 is still 100% increase.

And without water cooling i presume.

Supposedly, the vanilla Fury should arrive in AiO and air cooled version.

I'd prefer air cooled, AiO is a waste for my needs. Either way it's be custom water. Just need EKWB to start PR spamming for both 980ti and Fury!

The question I have is with the die being larger than previous GPUs, will ithe still have the same mounting? Looking to throw an AIO on the air cooled version.

I've felt the PR hype before. While I want to believe, I'm reserving judgement for reviews and benchmarks.

But AiO will be much much quieter regardless of conditions. Also, OC headroom should be a lot bigger on AiO...

4GB of ram is a failure IMO, if you plan to keep this card for 3+ years, I wouldnt buy it, It might be good for todays games at 1440P and most at 4K, but most games even at 1080P can use all 4GB of memory, GTA 5 is one example, I have the titan X and in some cases Ive seen 4.5gb of ram being used with msaa on at 1080P.

AMD? Do you really want to dredge up a naming scheme from ATI Rage cards way back when? Do you really think those of us who lived during those ancient times are going to go, "Wow, that name gives me warm and fuzzy feelings!"

Because it doesn't. It reminds me of Rage Fury Pro and Rage Fury MAXX. The latter card barely worked. Imagine if nVidia resurrected the FX5800 series as the FX8500. Or Intel brought back the Pentium IV and RDRAM because people loved it so much.

No, AMD. Stop being silly.

In theory DX12 can mixup RAM.
