AMD to Showcase Radeon Software Crimson and R9 Fury X2 on Nov. 20
AMD is reportedly planning to show off their recently revealed Radeon Software Crimson Edition in Japan on November 20th. If you’ve not looked up yet, Radeon Crimson is AMD’s newest graphics software that promises delivery of redesigned functionality, and remarkable new features to enhance the overall experience.
The report comes from a well reputed website, 4Gamer, which claims that AMD will hold an end-user event on Nov. 20 with the theme “Radeon Software” and the new GPU. The source however didn’t reveal as to which GPU the company has up its sleeves. But the US-based chip maker is likely to introduce its highly anticipated Radeon R9 Fury X2.
Code-named “Gemini,” the flagship board is rumored to feature two full fledged Fiji XT GPUs, along with 4GB of stacked High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) each GPU, and a combined memory bandwidth of one Terabyte per second.
If previous reports are to be believed, both Fiji XT GPUs inside the R9 Fury X2 are optimised to operate at clock speeds of up to 1000MHz, while the stacked 8GB of HBM VRAM has a clock speed of 500MHz.
Further, the card is said to be designed to deliver 80% boost in 4K and 2560×1440 gaming performance as compared to a single Fiji XT GPU at the same frequencies.
The Fury X2 recently leaked on India’s import and export data website Zauba, which reported the manufacturer had shipped six “Fiji Gemini” graphics cards from Canada to India.
You need to take this report with a grain of sand though, as no official statement has been made as of yet. We’re keeping an eye out and let you know when more information on the topic rolls out.
