AMD Radeon R9 Fury specs become available

After AMD launched the Radeon R9 Fury X the company had to look down and devise cheaper high-end HBM-memory-enabled cards to fill in these market niches as well. We knew what we were getting – the Radeon R9 Nano and the Radeon R9 Fury but we never had official data on them.

The folks at TweakTown seem to have found this information, at least for the Radeon R9 Fury. According to them the card will be based on the same 28 nm Fiji silicon found in the Radeon R9 Fury X but it will come with 56 enabled compute units, down from the 64 compute units in the Radeon R9 Fury X. Thus the Radeon R9 Fury will have 3584 stream processors. The TMU count will also be down to 224 units but the number of the ROPs seems to stay the same at 64. The memory configuration is also untouched and stays at 4 GB of HBM memory.

The upcoming Radeon R9 Fury will run at the same clock speed as the Radeon R9 Fury X. Thus the GPU will operate at 1050 MHz, while the memory will run at 500 MHz, delivering 512 GB/sec of memory bandwidth thanks to the integrated 4096-bit memory bus.

The new Radeon R9 Fury is expected to be 10-12 per cent slower than the Radeon R9 Fury X and it will also come with air cooling. The card will be priced around what the GeForce GTX 980 costs so there will be an interesting battle coming our way.
