AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X is released today, introducing HBM memory for graphics cards. The new card is built around a watercooled Fiji GPU, which enabled AMD to design a very compact card that will fit into many small-form-factor cases. Gaming performance at 4K is good and roughly matches the GTX 980 Ti.

OMFG I CANT WAIT TO READ THIS!!!!!

(edit) Wow.... I wish I didn't just read that....

(another edit) Nano is supposed to be "significantly" faster than the 290... Seeing how the Fury compares to the 290, I have my doubts.

Well... I guess I'll just wait to upgrade... Some smaller nm chips need to come along....

Seriously, samsung should just buy AMD. Fab their stuff at 22/16/14nm, dump cash into CPU+GPU R&D.

Samsung wants its own graphics IP for mobile too.

This card is great and all, but just imagine where we could be now if we weren't still fabbing 28nm chips like it's 2011.

So yeah, GTX 980 Ti FTW.

Solid card regardless, I'm sure the peeps here that only go red will lap it up.

Same price as 980ti, performs worse in more than half of the benchmarks, and comes with an extra KG of hosing+water+radiator.

Meh.

Disappointing ... just that.
AMD is officially dead to me, the board had some improvements in temperature and power consumption at the cost of a liquid cooling solution ... still lost almost 100% of tests for 980ti (excluding 4K) and even those who won , it was very close. If AMD thinks a plate for 4K is what the market needs then it is better than the Samsung just buy AMD.
I have been a loyal user of AMD for a long time, today I am using a 970 (MSI Gaming 3,5gb), I have no plans to use 4K, I'm very happy with full HD.

Wait... so it's not actually faster then the 980 Ti? Hmm... And what's the point in using a really nice high quality quiet fan if the pump and the coil whine buzzes it all away. The good news is that AMD is finally competitive, the bad news is that they needed next gen tech to just be in the same fight with "old" gen tech. Early next year, it all evaporates, and we get back to the underwhelming AMD we all know and "love".

Not the "halo" product I was expecting.

I love when TPU fall into (almost) silence when new card reviews are published, everybody are busy reading :D

On topic : good card with good power consumption, low temperature, and of course good performance. Disappointing overclocking headroom, and still can't totally beat 980 Ti, which is not so good news for AMD.

Those high bandwidth coming from HBM also needs some extraordinary GPU computing power which, as we all can see, still hard to be achieved with the current 28nm technology.

So it's settled then, after seeing Fury's performance state and also the rebranding strategy with R9 3xx series : I'm gonna buy GTX 970 next month :D

So pretty much what any reasonable person expected, alright but not exactly great, pretty much just a HBM product demo - as opposed to the greatest thing since sliced bread that the fanatics were expecting.

It's only 23% faster than the 390X at best. Like WTF are the drivers broken? The only thing it doesn't have more of than the 390X is the ROP count so is that holding it back? Because the SPs and TMU point to 45% more power than Hawaii and this doesn't even come close to delivering that.

Also is the card voltage locked?

Do you know if the high pitched whine from the pump is specific to your review card, or are others getting the same result with their cards? That would be a deal breaker for me.

<edit> it seems like HWC encountered the same high pitched whine.

every reviewer i talked to mentioned the pump noise. the coil noise is a separate noise depending on gpu load.

The hype is over. The only new card apart from rebrandeon to come out from AMD since October 2013 is, surprise, not the fastest single card on the planet. Otherwise it looks good but it doesn't have the right price.

If someone from NV would've come up to JHH with this expensive cooling solution for an average overclocking chip while affecting the almighty profit margins he would have fired him on the spot.

Almost all the reviews mention the pump having a high pitched whine. Some said AMD is working with CoolerMaster to reduce or eliminate it for the retail cards, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

As many others, extremely disappointed by this release.

Also having a lot of trouble justifying the relatively high score in the review. 9.2 for this card? It is underwhelming across the board:

- price/performance ratio is shit, only card doing worse is Titan X.
- extremely high power draw
- performance/watt is last-gen at best
- bad - virtually non-existant overclocking potential

Price point is OK-ish, but really only makes sense if you love AMD because the card performs sub-par across many different resolutions and games. For 4K it may be a sensible choice, but that is about it, and then it still is a coin toss between Nvidia/AMD offerings.

So much for the big marketing push and incredible performance/watt jump of HBM. To be honest, I had expected a slight jump in performance, even if only 5% above Titan X, but even that is nowhere to be seen. Basically AMD put a lot of effort in new tech that does not perform better than GDDR5, and the fundamental GCN issues such as high power draw while watching Blu-Ray and at maximum output have not been tackled, if anything they have gotten slightly more pronounced.

The most surprising thing however, is the whopping 4096 shaders used and the virtually unlimited bandwidth and how little performance it all adds. It's almost like the card doesn't get to stretch its legs. Weird.

Too bad it is competition with an already released product, that was brought to market to steal sales from Fury (talking about the 980Ti), and it is not winning this competition. This is going the way AMD and Intel are doing in the CPU department. They just cannot bring out a product that will keep them in contention. Would have been nice to see f it beats the nVidia offering what the green team would have done. A Titan X Black would have been nice with watercooling(maybe) and all. But now there is no need for that it seems and the prices wont go down, which is a pity since i am in the market for a new card and this will not change anything on the midrange pricing.

I see HBM as a disappointment, but the same was true when DDR3 and GDDR5 were competing at High end levels and GDDR5 couldnt really bring it on. Maybe next generation of memory will change my mind. Honestly i see this working in an APU more likely, with a small amount of HBM 512MB-1GB dedicated to the Graphics cores and not using DDR3/DDR4 which is clearly not at the level of VRAM no matter what frequency it runs at. Thinking ahead from the results the R9 Nano does not sound good at all anymore. Maybe 980 level performance and probably higher consumption as this still consumes in the range of the 290x and was said to be 50-100% more efficient than that, which seems the big one might achieve, but the small one would have to be on 16nm not to have to give up too much processing power, and i dont see them pulling that out of nowhere with their financial troubles.
