AMD has showcased its new graphics processor at Computex 2015.
AMD Fiji finally makes public appearance
It is now confirmed that Fiji has 4 stacks of High-Bandwidth-Memory, clearly pointing towards 4GB configuration. It is also confirmed that my mockup was an awesome job (yay me!). Hardware.fr crew spent some time asking question whether the 4GB limit will affect the performance in anyway, but of course no concrete answer was be provided. The CTO of AMD Joe Macri said this is not a problem and engineers are already figuring out how to optimize the memory usage.
I’m just wondering why are they not showing the actual card. We know that Fiji silicon is great achievement and it’s quire possibly the most advanced GPU in the history (HBM is a huge milestone), but people like me are more interested in pure specs, solid numbers and how many slots I need in my rig to make it run.
AMD Fiji, also known as Radeon R9 Fury will arrive on June 16th, so you better start looking for your piggy banks..
Personally I cannot wait for June 16th, there is so much as stake right now for AMD, that this might just be the most important launch in years.
Also did I mention we have a new teaser?
