AMD Radeon brings back back ‘Fury’ SKU name for its upcoming Fiji XT GPU

AMD’s upcoming card based on ‘Fiji XT’ was assumed to be R9 390X, but it is now known that the World’s first GPU with high-bandwidth memory (HBM) will be using the name from its past during its ATI days- AMD Radeon Fury.

The name ‘Fury’ was used in 1998 and it was the first card to have a 32GB SDRAM and known to have good 32bit colour mode support.

As of now, it is assumed that the GPU is based on GCN 1.3 architecture and has 4096 stream processors, 256 texture units with either 4 GB or 8 GB HBM with up to 640GB/s memory bandwidth. So far, it is reported that the AMD Radon Fury will be having a 120mm-based AIO liquid cooling unit and will take power from 2x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. For display outputs, it would include three DisplayPort 1.2a and one HDMI 2.0.

The naming scheme for its other cards are not yet known, so it is safe to assume that AMD wanted to have a special name since its the first GPU to use HBM.
