We still do not know what the performance will be Practice Of the Radeon R9 Fury X and his friends To the top of the graphic processing של But now it is likely that the formidable Fiji core with which you can handle gaming at 1080p and 1440p resolutions without a significant challenge, with real interest and need reaching even higher resolutions that are slowly becoming the new standard in the high market - Ultra HD And 2160p in the language of the people.

Fury / Fiji cards Are defined by AMD itself as products intended for gaming at resolutions of 4K and even 5K, But in the red manufacturer also confirmed that all current cards will not include support for the new HDMI 2.0 standard, which will make the gaming based on (As opposed to gaming based on a computer screen) seems to be somewhat problematic.

The core of the Fiji is very advanced, but the absence of one small detail may suggest the long period since its development until it reached the store shelves

The new HDMI 2.0 was created in order to provide a solution to the ", Being the first of the HDMI standards to support the 3,840 × 2,160 pixel refresh rate at 60 Hz - the same rate that allows the display media to display up to 60 frames per second. Much like the capabilities of connecting 1.2 competitor and older.

AMD products will not support the HDMI 2.0 standard, but rather the HDMI 1.4a standard, which only supports 4K, but only at the refresh rate of 30 Hz only, which can display a rate of 30 frames per second, which is not exactly suitable for games and will not let the Fiji shine In full force. Cards The Fury They will also support 4K transmission at a rate of 60 frames per second - but only based on DisplayPort 1.2a connections (the a-extra is for FreeSync technology Of the company, by the way). This is unlike cards The Maxwell 2.0 generation NVIDIA's current offering Everyone Support also 2.0.

The punch line is this: while high-quality computer monitors offer both HDMI and connection connections In order to ensure that the consumer has the flexibility to rely on a wide range of audio / video sources, in the television sets the dominant connection is HDMI, for historical reasons not quite justified, The increased bandwidth is a fairly rare sight.

AMD is focusing on DisplayPort because of its technology-based support The FreeSync, But may lose control of gaming in the living room - even though the compact size of the Fury cards looks perfect for such applications

The punch line is this: anyone who wants to be based on a product from the Fury family For effective gaming in the living room, will have to do so in practice based on a display medium with a connection , Which, as noted, now mainly comes on computer screens.

True, this is not a deadly Deal Breaker - yet it is something that anyone would want to build a system for the era of Which comes in close conjunction with the core of the Fiji will have to remember and consider it.

Let's hope that Fiji 2.0 seems to correct the gap in question.

Active adapters that can bridge between display devices with HDMI 2.0 and a built-in source 1.2 is expected to appear in the market soon, but it is reasonable to assume that it will require a considerable additional investment that will not really benefit most consumers
