AMD It's Coming Teaser - Fiji is on the Way

 

We all know that AMD has a new GPU up their sleeve, but AMD has been playing their cards, quite literally, close to their chests. But now they have released a teaser video. Details are light on this upcoming powerhouse, but AMD has just released this small teaser. 

 

 

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 we can now pretty much confirm that this GPU will 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.

 

AMD R9 390X makes an appearance

 

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.

 

You can join the discussion on AMD's Fiji GPU teaser on the OC3D Forums.

I hope AMD really slash their profit margins for this gpu series.
they have really trailed behind in recent years and most going for a AMD card due to value compared to Nvidia.
If they get the price right they could sell a lot of them although i don't know what the cost of early adoption of HBM is going to be. put it somewhere between a 980 and a titan x 5-600 quid and i may even consider going team Red. That is of course it performs well.

Also anyone from GPU re-sellers reading this. Do us all a favor if the card is watercooling only, connect the AIO with compression fittings, then at least we can add them to existing loops rather than having to buy a separate block or put up with a 120mm rad or two.Quote

Why would you say that? Hope it's slashes their profit margins? Do you want a monopoly Held by Nvidia? I sure as heck don't based off what their almost monopoly is and how they operate.. Btw re-sellers have nothing to do with the card. They just sell it. It is the 3rd party companies that choose what to do if AMD allow it.Quote

Seriously cannot contain my excitement for this!!!

For the sake of being different and the fact I love the 295x2, I'm gonna be investing in a couple of these ��Quote

It looks like the upcoming month will be very interesting for GPU's I really do hope AMD pull this one off Quote
