AMD has officially unveiled its Fiji based Graphics cards on 16th June at PC Gaming Show, but reviews will come from 24th June. Today one of the members reviewing Radeon R9 Fury X decided to post the screenshot of GPU-Z and we can clearly see that the Graphics card is featuring 128 ROPs instead of 64 inside Fiji GPU.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X: GPU-Z Screenshot Reveals 128 ROPs Instead of 64
This new Powerful Graphics card is powered by a new generation of high-bandwidth memory, AMD Radeon R9 Fury X will be the first card to utilize it. The Fiji GPU, which measures around 560mm2 is the biggest chip AMD has ever produced, but it is also the fastest.
The Radeon R9 Fury X is much compact in the size the credit goes to the HBM which is much compact in size and also about 9X faster than GDDR5 according to analytics. The interposer die on which HBM and core size is about 1000mm2 in size. While the complete chip is larger than any previous GPU ever produced from AMD camp. The First Generation of HBM is limited to 4Gb of memory so the Graphics card is packed with 4 GB of HBM memory that operates along a 4096-bit wide bus interface, clocked at 500 MHz and pumps out 512 GB/s bandwidth. The core frequency is 1050 MHz, while the turbo boost frequency is unknown to us. At last for display outputs the card is featuring total three display ports, including a single HDMI connector.
We don’t know precisely why GPU-Z is reporting this number of ROPs. It’s only a false information entry in most probability that ought to be remedied with a future update. Since the memory bandwidth, texture fill-rate and the pixel fill-rate are additionally reported inaccurately. Notwithstanding what’s being accounted for by GPU-Z its significant that not all Render Output Units are made equivalent.
Both of AMD’s Tahiti and Pitcairn GPUs offer the same number of ROPs. However the ROPs in AMD’s Pitcairn GPU are prominently smaller and less proficient than the ones inside Tahiti. It’s not farfetched that AMD could have built each of Fiji’s ROPs in such an approach to give more throughput than a Hawaii (R9 290X) ROP.
