AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Benchmarks Appear; Performance Seems Impressive


Recommended Posts

AMD announced its new Radeon R9 Fury line of video cards earlier this week, along with the R9/R7 300 series, and apart from technical details, didn't discuss what kind of performance we could expect. Given the high price point of the Fury cards and the upcoming launch, many people are looking forward to what they can do. While reviews won't be out until we get to that June 24 launch date, there are some leaks concerning the high-end R9 Fury X's potential performance. I say potential because these numbers are provided directly by AMD, but even then, the results are quite impressive. A number of games were tested at 4K with in-game settings just about as high as they can go, and it looks like AMD has a winner on its hands with the Fury X. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980 Ti looks to be outclassed in all the tests, with most games being far closer than others. Things do tend to line up with the past leak, even if the games from that are iffy.

The clock speeds of the Fury X and 980 Ti are not mentioned, so we don't know if the clock speeds of both cards are kept stock or if the Fury X is overclocked above and beyond the 980 Ti. AMD does say the Fury X should be able to handle a 100MHz overclock on the core with ease, thanks to the integrated liquid cooling system, so was that utilized in this benchmark? There is no way to know for sure, so don't take these numbers as gospel until we get something where all the elements are known.

The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X arrives on June 24 for $649, with the air-cooled Fury launching July 14 for $549.
