How well can the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2019. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. 776 games can be played by this graphics card of the 1000 most demanding games being played by PC gamers today.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB can run FIFA 20 at 1080p and saw it return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 353 FPS, Medium: 294 FPS, High: 216 FPS and Ultra: 157 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Red Dead Redemption 2 returns a reasonable 53 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB at 1440p with FIFA 20, which got a strong set of FPS results. These were, Low: 269 FPS, Medium: 224 FPS, High: 164 FPS and Ultra: 120 FPS. We then checked out Red Dead Redemption 2 which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 106FPS, M: 83FPS, H: 56FPS, U: 40FPS. And another popular game was Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip that returned L: 106FPS, M: 83FPS, H: 56FPS, U: 40FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is easily capable of pc gaming across these screen resolutions. Turn the game settings up to Ultra at 1440p. This GPU is also capable of running a solid FPS across a lot of games at 4K resolution as well.

How many years will the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 FURY 4GB? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 26% better and can meet 900 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 35% better and can meet 962 of their recommended requirements.

Radeon R9 FURY 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
The GCN 1.2 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture improves memory bandwidth performance which allows AMD to produce Graphics Cards with smaller data transfer rates without causing too much impact on the overall performance. This is done by using lossless delta color compression.
GCN 1.2 also adds improved Tesselation and video encoding/decoding performance as well as DirectX 12.0 Support.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Fiji PRO which has 56 Compute Units activated and thus offers 3584 Shader Processing Units, 224 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of stacked HBM-1 memory, through a 4096-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 500MHz.


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 4GB competes with GeForce GTX 980 4GB.
Compared to the latter, while it offers more or less the same performance at 1920x1080, it proves to be over 5% faster at 2560x1600 and more than the 10% faster at 4K. Even so, Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is still best suited for 2560x1600.
GeForce GTX 980 4GB is however much more energy efficient, consuming no more than 165W Under Load, while Radeon R9 FURY 4GB surpasses the 200W tier.
Because Radeon R9 FURY 4GB was released for $549 and GeForce GTX 980 4GB is available for $479, it doesn't shine as much as it could, making it only a better choice for those who game over 1920x1080.


System Suggestions
Radeon R9 FURY 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1600. We recommend a Very Strong Processor (Intel Core i7 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Check his resolution… NOT WORTHY AT ALL. :D
Both 970 and Fury are overkill for 1920x1080. Not to mention 1366x768 if he really uses that res.

No, I think GTX 970 is quite adequate for 1920x1080.
