Hold your horses – AMD have more cards to show. The codenamed “Fiji” range of cards have been revealed, built for the most hardcore of PC gamers. The R9 Fury, R9 Fury X, R9 Nano are the best of the bunch, all offering various takes on the “best PC gaming experience” possible.
Check them out below.
First up is the R9 Fury X. There’s two models here: they’re pretty much identical, except the R9 Fury X is water-cooled, and the R9 Fury is air-cooled. It’ll feature AMD’s new High-Bandwidth Memory – a band new technology aimed at giving the card up to triple the performance-per-watt of GDDR5, while not up as much space on the PCB.
Here’s some deeper specs on the R9 Fury cards:
- 4096 stream processors
- 8.9 billion transistors
- 8.6 teraflops of performance
- 1050 MHz core clock.
- 4GB HBM
The air-cooled R9 Fury will be available next month, on July 14th at $549. The water-cooled R9 Fury X however will be slightly behind it, on July 24th at $649.
AMD also revealed the R9 Nano. It’s a small form factor take on the R290X. At only six inches, it will be cheaper and versatile, but naturally only have half the power. There’s also going to be a dual-GPU variation of the R9 Fury later this year.
Now all that’s left is to get these cards into the hands of the consumers, and let the benchmark wars begin!
