AMD Radeon R9 Fury specifications

The leaked specifications of AMD Radeon R9 Fury include 56 compute units meaning it will have 3,584 Stream Processors, leaving the number of TMUs in 224 and the number of ROPs to 64. The memory configuration of this graphics card has not undergone any change and will come with four gigabytes of HBM graphics memory.

Of course, contrary to what is believed, the only difference from the Fury X hardware level will be that we have already counted, ie operating frequencies will be the same: 1050 MHz in the core and 500 Mhz memory (bandwidth with total memory of 512 GB / s). Therefore, based on empirical data regarding the difference Fury X is 12.5%.

To come with air cooling heat sinks

Another key difference is the sink. Since the AMD Radeon R9 Fury will sink air cooling instead of water cooling, the Fury X will operate at slightly higher temperatures. We can therefore expect the temperatures to reach around 75 degrees centigrade.
