This is not the only announcement AMD had for consumers; besides the Fury X, the company has also introduced the R9 Fury. Both graphics cards have the same HBM feature with Fiji GPU. All other specifics remain unknown for now other than that it will be air cooled and launch at $549 on July 12.
The company announced AMD Radeon R9 Fury X last week as world’s first ever single GPU fastest chip offering HBM (High Bandwidth Memory). The technology itself was introduced last month; the HBM when stacked vertically can produce bandwidth of half terabyte each second.
The Fiji GPU fit inside AMD’s new chip is called the Fiji XT and it is the biggest GPU in the history of AMD which is 596mm² large. It has a huge 4096 bit memory interface with over four thousand CGN stream processors alongside 256 texture mapping units. The chip computes 8.6 teraflops in a 275W graphics card.
AMD has also introduced two more, new, graphics cards. The Radeon Nano and a dual Fiji / dual Fury X behemoth which will be based on HBM and Fiji Silicon GPUs. According to President/CEO AMD, Lisa Su, the Radeon Nano will be twice as much faster and measures 6 inches making it the smallest and fastest card.
