Radeon R9 Fury X to have 4 GB of VRAM only

There are just hours left until the official announcement of AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card and the new Radeon 300-series graphics cards but we have managed once again to get hold of new and interesting information on these cards. Unfortunately the news is not good for some people.

It turns out that the flagship Radeon R9 Fury X will ship with 4 GB of memory only and no 8 GB versions are planned as of now. This is in contrast to the Radeon R9 390X and Radeon R9 390 that will ship with 8 GB of VRAM. According to AMD 4 GB are enough for today’s applications and the memory is fast enough even for the most demanding games and applications. In addition the Fiji GPU will encode the data while sending it to the memory, which will further increase performance.

Stay tuned for more information later when AMD reveals its new video cards.
