4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

This computer hardware provides top end graphics. The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB will easily meet recommended system requirements of games released today. This is a strong benchmarker on modern games and can often return excellent frame rates at high and ultra 1080p. But the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB can also run 1440p pc system requirements. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Lets look at the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB game performance guide for some of the biggest games played in 2020. In particular we will see how well this graphics card runs on Ultra settings on 1080p resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. The Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB can run the recommended graphics system requirements for 805 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB shows us that TrackMania Nations Remake is getting a strong result of 330 FPS, and then we are seeing Grand Theft Auto VI predicted to return a playable 32 FPS while another game on our list is the Horizon: Zero Dawn which is predicted to get 58 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Grand Theft Auto VI will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 63 FPS, Medium: 50 FPS, High: 34 FPS and Ultra: 24 FPS. Next we have Horizon: Zero Dawn running on Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB which is predicted to get L: 116FPS, M: 91FPS, H: 61FPS, U: 44FPS. And for performance contrast the popular TrackMania Nations Remake gets L: 663FPS, M: 523FPS, H: 352FPS, U: 251FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is a solid performer with higher resolution modern gaming. This graphics card can also bump up to 4K gaming regularly with the latest games still being capable of high or ultra graphics settings at this level.

How many years will the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 FURY X 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 X 4GB?

Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
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.
