AMD reveals HBM-powered Radeon Fury graphics cards, new R300-series GPUs
The rumors were true: The Radeon R9 Fury X is water-cooled, loaded with stream processors, and looks to be an absolute beast.
AMD's Returns to the Battle of Top Video Graphics Cards...
The wait is finally over. A year and a half after the launch of the R200-series, months after Nvidia refreshed its entire GeForce lineup, AMD has lifted the veil off its new Radeon graphics card lineup: the Fury series, powered by revolutionary high-bandwidth memory (HBM), and the company’s brand new Fiji GPU.
Leading the charge is the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, which is capable of driving Tomb Raider to 45 frames per second at 5K resolution and Ultra settings, and offers 1.5 times the performance per watt of AMD’s previous R9 290X flagship. The graphics card boasts 4,096 stream processors—an incredible jump over the R9 290X’s 2816. The Radeon R9 Fury X packs 8.9 billion transistors, compared to the R9 290X’s 6.3 billion transistors.
Given that AMD—like Nvidia—is still using the 28nm manufacturing process, the Fiji GPU itself must be massive.
The Radeon R9 Fury X comes with integrated closed-loop water cooling, much like AMD’s dual-GPU Radeon R9 295x2. “You’ll be able to overclock this thing like no tomorrow,” AMD CTO Joe Macri says.
“This is an overclocker’s dream.”
Simply put, this thing sounds like a beast. And yes, it’ll come with an illuminated Radeon logo when it launches on June 24 for $649.
The Fury X isn’t the only Fiji-powered Radeon, however. An air-cooled version dubbed the Radeon R9 Fury will be available July 14 for $549, while an unnamed mega-model with a pair of
Fiji GPUs is also in the works.

The new controller has been designed for Xbox One and Windows 10, and is different than the slightly tweaked Xbox One controller that comes with the new 1TB Xbox One console.
