AMD launches the Radeon R9 Fury X

AMD launches the Radeon R9 Fury X

About a week after the announcement of the new Radeon 300-series of graphics cards AMD has officially launched the new Radeon R9 Fury X – the first video card to come with HBM memory.

The new graphics card has been designed as an ultra high-end solution and its mission will be to compete with NVIDIA’s high-end video cards currently on the market. The Radeon R9 Fury X implements the new groundbreaking HBM memory, which now sits right next to the GPU instead of on the PCB, allowing for much smaller video cards than before. Thanks to an ultra-wide 4096-bit memory bus the HBM memory, although operating at just 500 MHz, provides the more than impressive 512 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. The Radeon R9 Fury X itself includes the all new Fiji GPU, which packs 4096 stream processors, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs and 4 GB of HBM memory. The GPU runs at 1050 MHz and gets cooled by a liquid cooling solution, which promises to keep the video chip in the 50 degrees Celsius range under load, while making just 32 dBa of noise. The new video card needs 275W of power, which is the same amount of electricity a Radeon R9 290X needs, but the Radeon R9 Fury X packs more than 40 per cent more graphics power.

The new Radeon R9 Fury X is available now. In the USA the new card along with the included liquid cooler sells for USD 649.99.
