AMD Fury X2 specifications confirmed, launch within two months

 

Gamers and hardware enthusiasts, hold your nerdgasms. AMD has confirmed the specifications of its upcoming Dual Fury GPU, codenamed 'Gemini'. The card, which we'll address to as 'Fury X2' for now, will supposedly launch within the next two months. More specifically, WCCFtech has stated that the card launch at the end of this month / the beginning of December. The Fury X2 will feature two Fiji XT GPUs, which will both feature 4GB of HBM each. The combined memory bandwidth will be a mind-boggling 1 Terabyte per second.

 

AMD Fury X2 specifications confirmed, launch within two months

 


With the Fury X2, AMD is aiming to boost 4K-performance with up to 80%, according to internal documents. Both Fiji-XT GPUs in the Fury X2 will have clock speeds of up to 1GHz while the stacked 8GB of HBM will run at 500MHz. It's worth noting that the Fury X2 will supposedly not work on 32bit Windows, but let's be honest, if you're getting a video card like this, you're probably running a 64bit OS anyway. A full list of specifications, courtesy of WCCFtech, can be found below.

YES FINALLY. Heres hoping it'll be worth the wait.Quote

If the TDP is indeed 375W for this one, then I guess the performance of this card is heavily TDP limited. I mean a Fury-X has a TDP of 375W alone...
To me it sound more like two Nanos stuffed together. So probably this is not the card we hoped it would be. Quote

Judging by the specifications, it might just perform about the same as two Fury X's in CrossFire. It that's the case, AMD will have a killer GPU on their hands. Especially since CrossFire with the Fury cards seems to scale very well.

The Fury X has a TDP of 275w actually. I was surprised to see that the TDP was only 375w too, though. It seems quite low. Can't wait to see some actual performance numbers.Quote

it looks like AMD will be running this at lover clocks than the Fury X, which explains the lower TDP. Perhaps this will act more like dual Fury nano GPUs, or somewhere between dual nano/dual Fury X.

If it uses a variable clock speed like the nano it will achieve Dual Fury X like speeds by simply increasing the power slider in CCC.Quote

Put a water block on it, and I'm sure it'll be easy to get that, or dual Fury X oc'd speeds (since you can usually overclock them only a couple MHz...)Quote
