Average Bench: 66.5% (43rd of 630)

Based on 6,237 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 7300 Models: AMD Radeon (TM) R9, AMD Radeon (TM) R9 Fury

The AMD R9 Fury X sports a brand new Fiji GPU which succeeds Hawaii as AMD's new high end GPU (Hawaii powers the 290/X and 390/X series cards). The new GPU is coupled with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) which is a new memory architecture that allows for significantly higher bandwidth than previous generations. The Fury X is factory overclocked and has a TDP of just 275W, 4GB of VRAM and it comes fitted with a water cooling system which results in a relatively small form factor for a top end graphics card. Although the Fury X only has 4GB of VRAM, this is rarely a problem for gaming even at 4K resolutions. The key comparable for the Fury X is Nvidia's similarly priced 980 Ti. Comparing the 980 Ti and Fury X shows that at stock clocks there is very little between the two cards but 980 Ti has significantly better overclocking potential where it leads by up to 25%. Overall the Fury X trades blows with the best GPUs currently available. [Jun '15 GPUPro]

even with age the Fury X still has no issues running games at ultra 1440, I never drop below 75 fps and get good crisp gfx

Got a R9 Nano, 'bench say it's a R9 Fury-X at 16% below average, feel so good :)

For me this card is an outstanding, moved from Sapphire Nitro R9 390 8GB, i really like the watercooling, since it easily removes heat from case, so i could slow down all the Noctuas and make the PC more quieter and more powerfull.

Probably one of the only GPU to come with 120mm AIO cooler as a reference cooler. Was the computing beast back in the day though.

Once a king. Now it's just a bad value card.


Poor

Liquid cooling = more problems. Not to mention, the Fury (non-X) with 512 fewer streaming processors (8 fewer compute units) performs just about as well as or better than the Fury X. Similar situation with the newer Vega 56/64.
