AMD R9 Fury X2 launching in December

 

 It looks like AMD will soon be releasing their newest and fasted GPU, a dual Fiji monster called the AMD R9 Fury X2. The GPU is currently rumored to be released in December and is already known to have been sent to developers and other industry insiders. 

The AMD R9 Fury X2 is essentially two R9 Fury X GPUs on a single PCB, offering 2X the theoretical performance and coming water cooled as standard.

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.

DICE's Johan Andersson, the chief architect of the companies Frostbite Engine has already received a pre-release version of AMD's R9 Fury X2, but as you can see from the tweet above, he has not had the best experience with this early model.

It will be very interesting to see how this monster GPU performs when it releases next month, and how Nvidia will respond to this release. Does Nvidia have a Dual GTX 980Ti or Titan X coming?

The theoretical performance is 2x the standard FuryX but in reality you will only get a maximum of 80% more performanceQuote

I hope AMD sort their drivers out for this. They usually do when they launch a dual GPU monster.. Just wish they had the same enthusiasm after the fact.

I installed Crimson on my rig and it absolutely decimated graphics performance in FO4. I had to remove it and go back to the betas, which thankfully I keep and store because AMD have discontinued them on their site.

I still want to Xfire my Fury X with a Nano, but prices are still on the wrong side of stupid.

Maybe early next year will be a better time to buy.Quote
