AMD R9 Fury X2 To Launch in Early December, Specifications Leaked
AMD is currently working to develop its most powerful graphics card ever, referred to as Radeon R9 Fury X2 at the moment. Code-named “Gemini,” the flagship board features two full fledged Fiji XT GPUs, and if the latest report is to be believed, it is set to launch within the next two months.
Rumors surrounding the R9 Fury X2 have been making rounds for a few weeks, and now, a technology blog WCCFtech have published an exclusive report revealing some key specifications of this new ultra-enthusiast graphics card. According to the report, the dual Fiji XT board comes with 4GB of stacked High Bandwidth Memory each GPU, and a combined memory bandwidth of one Terabyte per second.
AMD engineers have optimized both Fiji XT GPUs inside the R9 Fury X2 to operate at clock speeds of up to 1000MHz, while the stacked 8GB of HBM VRAM has a clock speed of 500MHz. The report further reveals that the card is designed to deliver 80% boost in 4K and 2560×1440 gaming performance as compared to a single Fiji XT GPU at the same frequencies.
Internal documentation states that the US-based chip maker is aggressively targeting the frame consistency with net frame variance that’s less than 20% with their frame pacing technology. Last but not the least, the card will not be supported on 32bit Windows operating systems.
The R9 Fury X2 is likely to come out in the early December. Meanwhile, we’ll keep an eye out and let you know when more details surface.
