Finally, the specifications of AMD’s much awaited next graphics processing line up, after so many rumors, are now confirmed by a benchmark leak. The benchmark leaks were published online few hours ago by the videocardz. As per reports, AMD’s Fury series will be the first graphics line up to utilize High Bandwidth Memory (HBM), another type of DRAM for next generation graphics cards after GDDR5.
AMD Fury and Fury X specs confirmed, Benchmarks Leaked
That concludes that AMD’s Fiji based upcoming graphics cards will be the fastest high end graphics card till date as the new Fiji based GPUs will be utilizing HBM, which means that the graphics card can provide around 640 GB/s of Bandwidth because of memory bus of 4096 bits. As per benchmark reports, the Fury X graphics card is equipped with 4GB of VRAM with 64 GCN compute units, 4096 stream processors and 256 texture units.
With these specifications, the new Fury X is around 50% faster than R9 290X while it is more power efficient than Radeon R9 290X. The die size of Fiji based gpus is is also bigger in size than the size of Hawaii, previous gpu chipset.
