AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card review: AMD's thoughtful 4K powerhouse

The long-awaited Radeon R9 Fury X is packed with power and loving design touches, but it's not quite a walk-off home run for AMD.

  • A diagram of AMD’s HBM implementation.

  • The stacking lets 1GB of HBM consume a whopping 94-percent less on-board surface area than 1GB of standard GDDR5 memory, which enabled AMD to make the Fury X a full 30-percent shorter than the Radeon R9 290X.

  • AMD’s Fiji GPU.

  • The AMD Radeon R9 Fury X’s technical specifications.

  • See the “GPU Tach” LEDs just above the two 8-pin power connectors?

  • Deploying water-cooling indeed keeps the Fury X running nice and cool.
