AMD shows off Fiji, teases impending Fury

1 min read


Computex, one of the largest computing and electronics expos in the universe (presumably) is in full swing in Taipei right now. It was largely expected that AMD would show off its latest, greatest video card, the R9 390X – but that hasn’t happened. Instead, AMD CEO Lisa Su took to the stage to show off the chip that powers it, the Fiji, all while extolling the virtues of its next generation of video memory: HBM stacked memory.

HBM makes for faster, more efficient memory. According to AMD’s technical marketing manager, 1GB of HBM memory takes up 95 per cent less space, freeing up a great chunk of the circuit board, allowing you to stack more memory on the thing.

“HBM satisfies the appetite for smaller device. There is this appetite for powerful, portable systems… but they don’t want to give up performance either,” Hallock said.

So when will you see the new card? On June 16th, at the AMD-sponsored E3 PC gaming conference hosted by PC Gamer. There you’ll be able to see AMD Radeon Fury. Rumour and conjecture suggests that AMD had planned to show the card off at Computex, but the announcement of NVidia’s GTX 980Ti forced them to make a few adjustments to clock and memory speed to push its performance above Nvidia’s new darling. That, of course, remains conjecture – but it’ll be exciting to see just how much of a difference the new memory standard (one Nvidia’s adopting in its next generation of cards) will make.

    Wait that is actually a she…. shudders. I’m sorry that’s mean of me but wow. Also what’s a circuit bard. Is that when your PC circuits make humming noises.

    Why have an E3 press conference but not show off your flagship groundbreaking, earth shattering, ass whipping technology to the miliiions of the Rock’s fans?

    The Fiji chip is the one that most gamers will likely be stuffing their faces with for the next year.

      Most gamer’s don’t buy flagship parts.

    delaying showing off their card to add more numbers to it?
    when will they learn? that is not how theyr going to win the race.
