Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

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

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.

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.
