Fury X's small and friable brother will be launched in about a week, and we get almost full details of the features he will bring with him to fight theGeforce GTX 980
We have not gotten used to the Radeon Fury X already here And ready to give significant Fite the best of NVIDIA, and around the corner we are already awaiting the launch of another intriguing new model - The Radeon Fury "Standard", Which will arrive in 14 per month Give battle to other Maxwell 2.0 models. New reporting From the website tweaktown offers a first look at the almost complete technical specification of the graphics card in the pipeline.
The Radeon Fury will also be based on the new Fijian core, this time with 3,584 processing units and 224 compatible texture units, which should still operate at a base frequency of 1,050 MHz the same as we have seen At Radeon Fury X. The innovative HBM memory capacity should also remain 4GB as in the older brother, with the same base frequency of 500 MHz and an effective 1,000 MHz frequency that provides a huge bandwidth of 512 / Gbps. Unlike the X models,Radeon The standard Fury will be based on more traditional air coolers, although it may still be relatively cool, with the source indicating a target temperature of less than 75 at 1 ° C during effort.
All these details should eventually give us a product that will perform fairly close to the leading Fury X with a reduction of approximately 12.5 to 15 due to the reduction of one-eighth of the core units in the Fiji core. If this is indeed the case, the Fury will be very competitive against The GeForce GTX 980, Which offers performance of about 15 to 20 percent less From GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
Competition in this case will ride Especially on the price, When AMD will be able to surprise with lower price For the Fury versus the GTX 980, which will create a new equation in the higher market, or prefer a higher starting price based on Performence Better (if any) - or choose the desired option and compare power ratios in this category as well, with a recommended base price of 500 dollars.
However, in the case of the standard Radeon Fury, the competition will be much more intriguing, because this time (unlike the state of the water-cooled Fury X) AMD will allow video card manufacturers to make adjustments and changes to their liking - which will create competition not only between The Fury for GTX 980 at a glance, but between Specific models For each of the cards that each will come with potential The fast And its own performance, and pricing is different.
Will the real competition in the graphics processing market come from the 500 dollar? In the meantime, that sounds perfectly possible, at least on paper - and in just over a week we'll get the official and final answer in question.
