Average Bench: 58.9% (113th of 715)

Based on 8,241 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]

i have both, but the R9's graphics are better on the eyes/smoother than the 1050 GTX, i love the Red RGB and i also love that its water cooled, it goes well with my set up

After all these years, still powerful enough for a great setting in the most popular games. Additionally 3xDP Ports for 3 nice Displays :)

Shockingly. this card years after release might still be a very solid small form factor GPU as long as you can find one used and do the maintenance on it's aging watercooler.

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.

Great temps, great performance in games, affordable. Competetive with nvidia top tier cards.

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

4 years ago.

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.

 Frequently Asked Questions

 Best User Rated

Why does UserBenchmark have a bad reputation on reddit?
Marketers operate thousands of reddit accounts. Our benchmarks expose their spiel so they attack our reputation.
Why don’t PC brands endorse UserBenchmark?
Brands make boatloads on flagships like the 4090 and 14900KS. We help users get similar real-world performance for less money.
Why don’t youtubers promote UserBenchmark?
We don't pay youtubers, so they don't praise us. Moreover, our data obstructs youtubers who promote overpriced or inferior products.
Why does UserBenchmark have negative trustpilot reviews?
The 200+ trustpilot reviews are mostly written by virgin marketing accounts. Real users don't give a monkey's about big brands.
Why is UserBenchmark popular with users?
Instead of pursuing brands for sponsorship, we've spent 13 years publishing real-world data for users.
