AMD to launch its R9 Fury X2 card within two months

There’s some good news for gamers with deep pockets – the rumored dual-GPU graphics card by AMD is now said to come within two months.

This is by no means official news but several online sources report on the issue so there must be at least some truth in this news. The card, which is expected to be called Radeon R9 Fury X2 will replace the current dual-GPU champion by AMD – the Radeon R9 295 X2. The upcoming card will have two Fiji GPUs as well as 8 GB of HBM memory (4 GB per chip) with both GPUs running at 1000 MHz, while the HBM memory will keep its default clock speed of 500 MHz but thanks to the dual GPUs the overall memory bandwidth will be more than 1 TB/sec.

AMD believes that the R9 Fury X2 will offer 80 per cent more performance in 4K and WQHD resolutions when compared to a single Fiji-based video card at the same frequencies. An interesting feature of the new card is that it will not support 32-bit versions of Windows, which is not surprising given that we have had 64-bit Windows versions for a decade now.
