AMD VRLA 2016: R9 Fury X2 Will Have 12 TFLOP of Single Precision Compute Performance
Recently, at their Virtual Reality Los Angeles (VRLA) Winter Expo keynote, AMD Corporate Vice President of Alliances Roy Taylor revealed a key piece of information regarding their upcoming Dual Fiji graphics card, the Radeon R9 Fury X2.
At the event, AMD showcased the flagship card inside an SFF “Prototype Tiki” gaming system made by custom PC maker, Falcon Northwest. During the demo, the chipmaker revealed that the Fury X2, codenamed “Gemini,” will boast of around 12 TFLOP of Single Precision compute performance, which is slightly lower than what was being rumored. For reference, AMD’s last-gen dual-GPU flagship, the Radeon R9 295X2, has around 11.5 TFLOP SP compute performance.
However, considering the Radeon R9 Fury X2 is expected to have a TDP of 375W, compared to the R9 295X2’s 500W, the new Dual GPU will definitely be more power efficient than its predecessor.
Other technical specs of the Fury X2 are:
- Dual Fiji XT GPU
- 8192 Stream Processor
- 8GB HBM (2x 4GB)
- 4096-bit Bus x2
- 128 ROP
- 512 TMU
- Bandwidth of 1 TB / s
- Liquid Cooling
Further, the R9 Fury X2 is rumored to deliver 80% boost in 4K and 2560×1440 gaming performance as compared to a single Fiji XT GPU at the same frequencies. Pricing details are not known yet, while the availability is expected within the first half of this year.
