In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Crossfire are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 SLI.

The R9 FURY has a 4 MHz higher core clock speed and 256 more Texture Mapping Units than the GTX 770. This results in the R9 FURY providing 269.8 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 4 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Render Output Units than the GTX 770. This results in the R9 FURY providing 67.5 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 over a year more recently than the GTX 770, and so the R9 FURY is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 770.

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 R9 FURY has 4096 MB more video memory than the GTX 770, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 FURY also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 FURY has 575.5 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GTX 770, which means that the memory performance of the R9 FURY is massively better than the GTX 770.

The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Crossfire has 8192 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770 SLI has 3072. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 FURY is 8602 and the actual shader performance of the GTX 770 is 3333. The R9 FURY having 5269 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 GTX 770.

The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Crossfire requires 500 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770 SLI requires 400 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 800 Watts for the R9 FURY and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the GTX 770. The R9 FURY requires 100 Watts more than the GTX 770 to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 FURY may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GTX 770.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Crossfire is a solution of two Radeon R9 Fury X put together using AMD's Crossfire Technology.

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.

The Central Unit runs at 1050MHz.

Memory: Speed
Each GPU is equipped with modern HBM-1 Memory and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
Each GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 500W.

Performance is Sufficient for Extremely Detailed Gaming at 4K.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Crossfire is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 770 SLI is a combination of 2 GeForce GTX 770 put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.
Together, this combination offers 3072 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs. This, on a 256-bit memory interface, per card, of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1046MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1752MHz.
Best case scenario, this combination performs better than dual-graphics GeForce GTX 690 but ultimately, its performance depends on the driver support and on the 3D application.
Therefore, and paired with a powerful processor, all demanding games are playable at the highest settings. Still, this combination might surpass the 450W barrier of TDP and so it will require a very powerful PSU.
