Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

  • Hexus: AMD shares some R9 Fury X Far Cry 4 UHD performance charts

    Impressive single GPU 4K performance. That memory bus at 4K must help a bunch.

    AMD continues to drip feed information about its upcoming Radeon R9 Fury range of graphics products. A few hours ago in Beijing, the chipmaker held a conference with a bit more depth to the details than in its own E3 event and the subsequent E3 PC Gaming show. At China's 'New Era of PC Gaming' presentation the attendees also saw some performance benchmarks. There is a live blog of the event at PCOnline and further slides published on EXPreview (both in Chinese).

    Below you will see AMD's official benchmark slide which illustrates the smooth gameplay on offer from an AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. The game under scrutiny was Far Cry 4, played in ultra settings in 4K. AMD claims this new graphics card can achieve smooth gameplay performance with an average 54fps, never dropping below 43fps.

    At the time of writing HEXUS doesn't use Far Cry 4 in benchmarking but AnandTech has used it for a few months for its comparative benchmarks. So included for reference below is a recent Far Cry 4 ultra quality 4K benchmark chart taken from Anand's Titan X review. This gives us an interesting indication of the 4K performance of the Fury X. Overall this is probably more helpful than the various leaked Futuremark benchmark results doing the rounds, for example.

    I've embedded some more of the nice and clear AMD slides from the Beijing event, via EXPreview, below.


    I have to add that LinusTechTips testing showed that the Gigabyte G1 980Ti was a mighty overclocker. At 1481Mhz it manages ~21% better performance than the stock 980Ti. Still this is OC vs Stock, if we're going to go off temps, one would assume the Fury X could also be overclocked extremely well.

    Looks like they just kept the R9 architecture, threw in a bunch more stream processors and a handful of TMUs, added some HBM on package and voila. AMD should have worked its core architecture more imo. Performance wise it looks damn nice though.

      My R9 290X did very well with 4K and now with the 295X, yeah it works VERY well with 4K60. Great cards.
