Overclocker Manages to Clock ASUS Radeon R9 Fury to 1.0 GHz HBM
A professional overclocker Xtreme Addict on HWBot (Team Pure) has recently managed to clock an ASUS Radeon R9 Fury model to an insane 1.0 GHz HBM featuring 1 TB/s Bandwidth on LN2. The overclocker was able to fully unlock the Fiji Pro based GPU in to a Fiji XT chip.
The R9 Fury graphics card is a cut-down version of AMD’s flagship Fury X with a slightly lower amount of Compute Units. Various AIB partners like ASUS, Sapphire, MSI, and others have launched their own custom R9 Fury models that promise better overclocking through modified PCBs.
Xtreme Addict has now posted a comprehensive overclocking guide that walks you through the steps to fully unleash the ASUS Radeon R9 Fury Strix graphics card. He tested the R9 Fury in four configurations; the scores obtained by the card at stock specifications and with shaders unlocked are as under:
The overclocking steps required unlocking the Compute Units to enable Fury X grade performance, enabling the hotwire soldering pads, a 0.95v Rail mod, and of course the trimpot/hotwire VGPU, VMEM, VPLL (VDDCI) mods.
The overclock was performed twice, once with the locked shader BIOS with core clock sitting at 1450 MHz and 1000 MHz HBM clock, scoring 9634 marks in 3DMark Firestrike Extreme.
The second test was done with the card fully unlocked and at speeds of 1400 MHz GPU clock and 1000 MHz HBM clock that resulted in a score of 10033 marks in 3DMark Firestrike Extreme.
