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

One of the most powerful pieces of hardware available today, the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB runs today’s game system requirements comfortably. 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 2019. 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 862 games today, of the top 1000 most demanding.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB shows us that Microsoft Flight Simulator is predicted to get a playable result of 39 FPS, and then we are seeing Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order predicted to return a playable 39 FPS while another game on our list is the Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which is getting 58 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order will deliver playable FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 78 FPS, Medium: 61 FPS, High: 41 FPS and Ultra: 29 FPS. Next we have Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip running on Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB which gets L: 116FPS, M: 91FPS, H: 61FPS, U: 44FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator is predicted to get L: 78FPS, M: 61FPS, H: 41FPS, U: 29FPS at 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is not a bad choice for a larger screen size like this. Some games will struggle though, but with some careful graphic option adjustments in-game you can normally find a suitable visual experience with this GPU at 1440p.

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? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB would be the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5 which meets 905 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 21% better performance. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which is 23% more powerful and can run 962 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

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.

Damn. AMD did it again. Making completely better hardware. HBM-1 is great! I bet Nvidia will start using it, or will they stick with GDDR5X?

Was able to get mine for $320 on ebay. With the driver updates and memory/voltage unlocks it is very powerful. Able to OC core to 1200mhz from 1050mhz and memory to 600mhz from 500mhz. I had previously upgraded to a 1070 but sold it for $, benchmarks the 1070 was way better, but my primary game is WoW and there was virtually no difference(5-10fps) in most areas.

They should update the information. Operating memory clock can be increased and there is greater control of the voltage too. Drivers have all but cleared up some of the major flaws of the card too. It is still not at the level of a 980 ti unless at 4k(stock speed)but considering its cheaper now than the Ti as of writing this and its improved, it is worth noting, and even more so competitive.

Wrong, remember that Titan X can be tweaked as well. As far as I know Titan X can by OC'd way futher then Fury X.

Except the Titian X is forced to use a stock blower cooler and OEM board. Meaning even if the chip CAN go higher, it doesn't matter cause it will thermal throttle like hell. Its why most 980 ti's BEAT the titian X.
Also the FuryX is better at 4k because of its HBM.

No, Titan X are not forced to use stock cooler, lol, ever heard of waterblock? AlsoTitan X are sold as Hybrid, and the dimension are similar to 980 ti, so you can easily replace the Titan X cooler with a 3th party 980 ti cooler. So wrong saying that Titan X are forced to use stock cooler, tha's baised and pure AMD-fanboyism right there.

So technically you can easily push Titan X higher (without throttling) when using watercooler, hynrid or another 3th party cooler. 980 ti beating Titan X are only with stock cooler, there are several benchmarks were Titan X do it just as good or better when having the right cooling option. And HBM does not make Fury X better on 4k. Show me a benchmark if you're right, but I guess you won't, as most benchmarks I've seen shows that 980ti/Titan X does better at 4k.

That's like saying a Honda Civic is better then a Mustang because you "can" put in better parts. By default though, there is no single TitianX you can just buy that will outperform any decent aftermarket 980ti.

Cars have nothing to do with it, just shows your lack of knowledge. Ever heard of EVGA Titan X Hybrid, Hydro Copper, and ZOTAC Titan X Arctic Storm? All are Titan X models sold with aftermarket coolers that can compete with and even beat some of the aftermarket 980 ti's. Please educate yourself before down voting and backtalking me, you clearly don't have a clue. Search up the models I just mentioned, I mean also Gigabyte has sold an aftermarket Titan X if I'm not mistaken.

Wow, this GPU is like twice as fast then nvidia 980. Just take a look at those specs, it destroys even Titan X.
