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]

The RX 580 is released this week and is AMD’s latest flagship GPU based on second generation Polaris architecture. For all intents and purposes it is a refresh of the RX 480 released just 10 months prior. Modifications to the architecture have yielded improved performance per wattage and increased clock speeds of around 10% for base and around 5% for boost. The RX 580 will come with either 4GB or 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory. Exact pricing for this mid-range chip remains to be seen, but the RX 500 series is likely to cannibalize sales of AMD’s 400 series. Performance wise, the RX 580 is in direct competition with NVIDIA’s popular GTX 1060 6GB which in now 9 months old. Perhaps after last year’s ill timed head to head release of the RX 480 and the faster but similarly priced GTX 1060 (a standoff which NVIDIA seem to have won based on market share), AMD are attempting to draw back some market share with the newer, slightly upgraded RX 580. The upcoming release of the 500 series comes ahead of AMD’s Vega architecture, for which specification and pricing details are not yet public but which will is expected to yield a significant jump in performance compared to Polaris. [Apr '17 GPUPro]
