AMD Announces the Radeon R9 Fury Graphics Card

AMD announced the second graphics card based on its swanky new "Fiji" silicon, the Radeon R9 Fury. Positioned between the R9 390X and the R9 Fury X, this card offers higher pixel-crunching muscle than the R9 390X, while giving you cutting-edge 4 GB HBM memory. It can play any game at 2560 x 1440, and at Ultra HD (3840 x 2160), with reasonable eye-candy. The R9 Fury is designed solely for AMD's AIB partners to come up with their own air-cooled products.

AMD carved the R9 Fury out of the Fiji silicon, by enabling 56 of the 64 GCN compute units physically present, yielding 3,584 stream processors. Other specifications include 224 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 4 GB of memory across a 4096-bit wide HBM interface. The core is clocked at 1000 MHz, and the memory at 500 MHz (512 GB/s). Custom-design boards will offer factory-overclocked speeds. AMD is pricing the R9 Fury at US $549.

Yay.

is the Nano supposed to be faster/stronger than the FuryX?

Although I see promising Futures with HBM, and AMD, currently if it was between a $560 Fury, or a $500+ 980 , I'd go with the 980, and it would be the first time in ages that I wouldn't be running an AMD GPU in My System.

The 380 seems like a decent price point, and looks like it competes well enough with it's more expensive competitors, but as far as HBM card's that were SUPPOSED to compete, they've fallen a Bit short IMO....I feel its only fair to say that the FuryX IS less expensive than Say the 980Ti , but I'd have rathered it be more expensive, and faster than the Ti....We NEED this competition as consumers, and it takes TWO to tango..I sure Hope AMD gets they're thunder back SOON.

I like the look of that Ref shroud on the Fury in the article though, too bad we wont see them that way :(

where is the review ?
I don't have a card yet, I expect it today, real soon, 20 minutes ago actually.

First there was a strike at DHL in Germany, then ASUS Germany couldn't send it out yesterday "because it's not booked in the system yet", they sent it this morning, so fingers crossed.

Slower than Fury. It just has a fancy mITX form factor. Not sure why everyone is excited about that though...

Considering they are both $650 right now, I don't think its fair at all to say that.

I'm really liking AMD's simple cooler design with their newest cards.

Its supposed to best the R9 290X with a substantial power reduction, I'm guessing their going to do this by cutting down the Fiji Core even more down to about 48CU (3072 cores) or 44CU (2816 cores) to match the 290x since their cores (GCN) are the same. Clock speeds and anything else is anyone else's guess, but I'd say the HBM is going to stay there.

If HWC's review of this new Fury is anything to go by AMD has a winner on it's hands. Significantly faster than the 980 and at only ~$50 more. Power consumption is decent, performance is great price is right. Too bad about their Fury X, maybe they shouldn't have used an expensive water cooler that probably drove up the total cost of their flagship card. Great job with this card AMD.

Yea, the reviews so far point to the card being stronger than the GTX 980 which I think will make it a compelling buy at that price point even over the fury since its in between. What I am more curious about is if there will be some lightning (or similar) cards with better overclocking and such that will allow these to be pushed to the extreme.

I think its more supposed to (Based on where the Fury is) best the R9 390 (R9 290) and the GTX 970.

Get er done W1z!! I am gonna buy a Fury regardless but I need to see the ASUS vs Sapphire before I make my final decision. I have run Sapphire since the 9800. I don't want to jump ship to ASUS without good reason.

Just watched Dimitri's video review from HWC & The Fury seems to be a winner for me. Still waiting for Wiz's review :toast:

Two DVI ports, really?
Can we please drop DVI ports on graphics cards already?

The Asus card (posted below in the news section) does appear to have three DisplayPort connectors which is good news.

Also, why would AMD be going backwards, they were way ahead of Nvidia when it came to adding DisplayPort connectors to their cards and now we're getting more DVI all ports all of a sudden, huh??

Picture is a mockup of a R9 390x, The Fury has the same IO as the "X"

You realize that is just a random AMD marketing shot, it is not a shot of the Fury, right?

Fury has no reference card, BTA just picked some random picture from AMD's marketing material.
