AMD Project Quantum Features Two R9 Fury X GPUs, Capable of Driving 4K 60fps Displays
AMD has revealed its ridiculously potent gaming PC, dubbed Project Quantum, at E3 show. This small box packs not one, but two full Fiji XT cores, which means this one machine will be able to provide over 17 Teraflops of computational power.
Based on 8GB of High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM), the Project Quantum device should be more than capable of handling anything 4K 60fps while staying super quiet and super cool. The credit actually goes to AMD’s liquid cooling technology that it used for both the dual Fiji XTs and the AMD 64-bit x86 processor, which are housed in the bottom half of the unusual almost-hourglass styled casing.
It’s worth mentioning here that when I say dual Fiji XTs, I don’t mean two separate graphic cards, instead it refers to one single Dual-GPU graphic card. The card hasn’t been revealed yet, but whenever it hits the market, it is believed to revolutionize the whole micro-processor and related technologies.
Though AMD didn’t reveal alot of details about the product, one thing we know for sure is that it should prove pretty ample for 4K gaming of any sort — thanks to 8GB of HBM memory, built on DirectX 12 innovations. Then it’s not just about 4K gaming and 4K resolution. AMD’s Liquid VR tech will enable the tiny box to offer an absolutely seamless gameplay experience when combined with the VR headset.
In fact, once it hits the shelves this fall, the R9 Fury X will only be the first of a range of graphics options focused on VR. AMD hasn’t said a word regarding the production for gaming PCs based on Project Quantum reference design.
