Radeon 300 Series/fury Discussion Thread.

Postby ThatOneFox » June 13th, 2015, 6:25 am

On the 15th, Radeon will unveil its 300 series of graphics cards. Also being revealed is their new flagship, the Fury, which uses HBM and is watercooled out of the box. Previously, we had expected the 300 series to be entirely rebrands (except for fury), however with leaks of the specs from MSI, it turns out that the 390x/390 will use a new chip called "Grenada", the 380 will use a new chip called Antigua, the 370 will use Trinidad, and the 360 will use Tobago.

Pretty surprising so far. Below are some images of the R9 Fury X

Radeon Fury Price: USD$ 549
Radeon Fury X Price (Watercooled fury): USD$ 649

This is a card that delivers 60fps 4k on ultra settings, costs less than a 980ti, and is only around 8 inches long.

I am very impressed.

Damn son

I actually might consider getting a new, more powerful graphics card. I've got a 2GB GTX 760 SC on my custombuilt PC atm, works pretty well but idk... sometimes it doesn't quite cut it

New Directx12 benchmarks are showing performance from the r9 290x (A last generation card) matching the GTX 980ti

Hopefully we'll see some fury X dx12 benches soon.

Trust me it will be improved. The 380 beats the GTX 960 which is a generation ahead of the 760

After hours of fiddling with super broken graphics drivers I finally got it to work properly.
Certainly wasn't impressed with how broken the latest drivers were. The card performed miles worse than my GTX 760, jumping between 10 - 60fps at any given second, even while not moving. And it would always freeze every few moments. Eventually installed the drivers that came with the CD rather than the latest AMD drivers and made the card useable.

Now that I got things working properly, the r9 380 certainly performs miles better than my old card, getting 60fps on the Witcher 3. But, having AMD as my first card, and having to run in circles to use it has pretty much kicked this brands first impression for me. I hope this isn't something that happens often, since the return policy is replacement only. I'm surprised that AMD releases drivers this severely broken (its like they didn't bother testing).

Edit (3/24/2016):
More broken drivers later, and I feel like I should have gotten a GTX 960. While on paper the r9 380 peforms better, these bad drivers are undercutting its abilities. Just about every game stutters, and I've had to go through painstaking lengths to make things work "decent". For some reason v-sync kills performance on games to the point of stuttering too, so I've had to get used to screen tearing in favour of framerates that can actually stay around 60fps (on a good day). The next GPU purchase, unless AMD gets its drivers together, I'll be going with Nvidia again.
