AMD Fiji Pictured Again

 

After last night's official teaser another picture of AMD's upcoming Fiji Flagship GP has been leaked, showing that this GPU will have dual 8-pin power connectors and no fans on the GPU itself.

We know that this GPU will be using an HBM memory architecture, which will be a first for GPUs and we are fairly sure that AMD will be announcing this GPU very soon at Computex. DICE's Johan Andersson has given us the first official peak at AMD's upcoming monster GPU less than a week ago.

From what we can see here now this GPU will definitely be liquid cooled as we do not see a fan or much room for airflow. With the need for liquid cooling in the reference version, this GPU looks like it will be a hot one, though with the space saving achieved by using HBM, it may be very difficult to build an adequate cooler without a big enough PCB to bolt it onto.  

Right now it looks like this GPU will be a 4GB card, which is rumored to have 4096 GCN GPU cores with AMD's latest GCN architecture, which is believed to be GCN 1.3.

The GPU is will be a dual slot GPU, but sadly the picture was taken is such a way that we can't really say more, while the leaked rendering may have shown a single HDMI port and 3 Display ports but we cannot confirm this until the GPU is officially revealed. 

Johan Andersson says that this GPU is "This new island is one seriously impressive and sweet GPU. wow", so hopefully this GPU will perform just as impressively on our test bench.

A lot of AMD's negative press in recent weeks surround their lackluster performance when running Nvidia's HairWorks visual effect, which relies heavily on tessellation, a place where AMD has a performance disadvantage compared to Nvidia. AMD's GCN 1.2 architecture, which was featured in AMD's Tonga GPUs, features 2x the tessellation performance compared to GCN 1.1, which was used in AMD's Hawaii GPUs. This means that AMD's Fiji GPU, which is based on AMD's latest iteration of their GCN graphics core architecture will feature much greater tessellation performance than any other AMD GPU, meaning that it should handle Nvidia's HairWorks much better.

With a rumored 4096 GCN GPU cores and a whole new memory architecture, this GPU will no doubt be the strongest offering AMD has ever produced, but the question of how it will compare to Nvidia's GTX Titan X remains.

Not too sure about the small PCB, but that is a sexy GPU. I do like the backplate too. Nice article WYP!Quote

Hmmm... i'm also concerned I was hoping for triple 8-pins. I really don't like the short PCB, hopefully some of them are bigger.

They better include a bunch of DVI adapters with the card :P

On a side-note don't worry there are crazy people like powercolour might bring a new devil out equipped with fins and fansQuote

Wow that is short. Means all the power in a small build though so thats good.Quote

Nobody wants to see short PCB cards on an E-ATX board. Plus you will still need a boat load of power and cooling so you can't make the case smaller. It will be cool for some ITX builds I guess.
