Details about AMD’s latest Fury X graphics card have been focused on the hardware and specs. We did know the card came with AMD’s HBM technology and a lot of computing power. If you’ve missed the spec details, you can view them again here. So how well can it handle the latest games? Well, AMD seems to have ut it to the test.
The Fury X was recently benchmarked on Ubisoft’s latest Far Cry title, Far Cry 4, at the Beijing conference. The company showed that Fury X is able to handle 4K resolution while rendering Far Cry 4 in Ultra Settings at an average rate of 54FPS. The minimum was indeed 43FPS, but we are talking about 4K here and I’m sure nothing that is within an acceptable price range can handle that at the latter FPS.
Also, compared to other cards benchmarked on Far Cry 4, the Fury X seems to be at the top line. I mean it looks to have even taken on NVIDIA’s GTX Titan X as shown below. The only competition it has, according to the benchmarks, is the R9 295X2. However, you can’t really compare a dual-GPU card or an SLI configuration’s statistic with just a single card’s output.
What we need to know now is what price tag coming with this beast. We don’t want to speculate on a price right now, but since it’s AMD, we can’t be looking at something greater than what NVIDIA is asking for their own cards. Or will we?
