In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB are significantly better than the AMD FirePro S9150.

The R9 FURY has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed and 80 more Texture Mapping Units than the FirePro S9150. This results in the R9 FURY providing 110.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 FURY has a 150 MHz higher core clock speed than the FirePro S9150 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R9 FURY providing 9.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R9 FURY was released less than a year after the FirePro S9150, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The FirePro S9150 has 12288 MB more video memory than the R9 FURY, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the FirePro S9150 also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 FURY has 192 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the FirePro S9150, which means that the memory performance of the R9 FURY is massively better than the FirePro S9150.

The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB has 4096 Shader Processing Units and the FirePro S9150 has 2816. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 FURY is 3656 and the actual shader performance of the FirePro S9150 is 2534. The R9 FURY having 1122 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 FURY delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the FirePro S9150.

The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB requires 275 Watts to run and the FirePro S9150 requires 235 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 600 Watts for the R9 FURY. The R9 FURY requires 40 Watts more than the FirePro S9150 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 FURY may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the FirePro S9150.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.

Architecture
The Fiji is a Second Generation GCN GPU. It offers support for HBM-1 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Open GL 4.5 and the acclaimed Delta Compression Algorithm which may decrease bandwidth consumption by up to 30%, in most games.
Fiji XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-1 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, and because the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, 4GB might be a bottlenecked and Performance could be better, were the Frame Buffer larger.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 275W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.

Performance
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB competes with GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB and both are available for $649.
Benchmarks However Indicate that GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB is still faster than Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB, even at 4K, whereas as the resolution goes down, the performance gap between the latter and GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB increases and at 1600x900, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is only as fast as the weaker GeForce GTX 980.
Considering Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB offers practically no overclock potential (operating memory clock can't even be increased), consumes slightly more energy than GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB, costs the same price and performs worse, Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB ends up being one of AMD's worst releases of the last years and given the hype built, probably the most disappointing.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
FirePro S9150 is a server GPU based on the 28nm GCN architecture.

It's based on the Hawaii XT Core (same used on Radeon R9 290X) and therefore offers 2816 Shader Processing Units, 176 TMUs and 64 ROPs on a 512-bit interface of fast GDDR5. The central unit is clocked 900MHz while the memory clock operates at 1250MHZ.

Compared to Radeon R9 290X, its central unit is slightly lower and overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon R9 290X because the latter benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9150 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 10% and 15% worse than Radeon R9 290X.
