AMD Launches New Radeon 300 Series Graphics Card Lineup, Fury X And Project Quantum At E3.

Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, Advanced Micro Devices announced their newest line of desktop gaming graphics cards. During today’s PC Gaming Show at E3 2015, Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD, showed off their new graphics card, a dual-GPU Fiji card, which will be released this fall. The line, called the Radeon 300 Series, is the latest from the company and features a broad array of discrete graphics cards ranging from the extreme enthusiast PC gamer all the way to the casual PC gamer. A year and a half after the launch of the R200-series, months after Nvidia refreshed its entire GeForce lineup, AMD has lifted the veil off its new Radeon graphics card lineup: the Fury series, powered by revolutionary high-bandwidth memory (HBM), and the company’s brand new Fiji GPU. Leading the charge is the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, which is capable of driving Tomb Raider to 45 frames per second at 5K resolution and Ultra settings, and offers 1.5 times the performance per watt of AMD’s previous R9 290X flagship.

The Radeon F9 Fury will be air-cooled, will cost $550, and will come available on July 14th. and the Fury X will be $650, will appear on July 24th, and will be water-cooled. AMD never overtly said how much capacity the Fury’s HBM actually has—presumably because Nvidia’s been loading its Titan X and GeForce GTX 980 Ti with RAM—but a press release from Hynix, which actually creates said memory, puts the total at 4GB. HBM’s memory clock speed tops out at a mere 1Gbps—traditional GDDR5 RAM can hit 7Gbps—but utilizes a ridonkulously wide 4096-bit interface to deliver 512GBps of pure memory bandwidth.

Make sure to keep it here with us at GameSided all week, as we will keep you up to date on all the announcements, reveals, gameplay, trailers & more for E3 2015! This includes the creation of their Project Quantum system, which serves as a concept for those considering new ways of using these graphics cards from AMD.

AMD also took advantage of Fiji’s power savings and HBM’s space savings to introduce the Radeon R9 Nano, which measures a mere six inches in length but offers “significantly more performance than the Radeon R9 290X,” according to AMD CEO Lisa Su. Finally, AMD marketing manager Chris Hook also took the stage to introduce “Project Quantum,” a tiny, new box-like PC that’s powered by not one, but two of AMD’s new Fiji GPUs. The computer slaps all the processing technologies in the bottom of the box, and all the cooling up top, narrowing to a filter-like pole in the center.

AMD also refreshed the rest of its graphics card line, bumping its more mainstream GPUs up to the R7 300 and R9 300 series, all of which are compatible with the forthcoming DirectX 12 and Vulkan APIs—though few other technical details were revealed. Kicking things off were the lower-end R7 offerings, which AMD says are tailor-made for playing e-sports games like Dota 2 and League of Legends at 1080p resolution. To ease the load on these modestly powered GPUs, they include a technology AMD calls “Frame rate target control,” which caps the GPU’s frame rate output in games where you get extremely high frame rates, in order to reduce power and noise needs. The Radeon R7 360 will start at $109 and include up to 2GB of traditional GDDR5 RAM, while the more potent Radeon R7 370 will start at $149 and pack up to 4GB of memory. For the past few months, the rumor mill’s been adamant that the new 300-series Radeon GPUs are actually built around barely-tweaked GCN silicon that first made an appearance in the Rx 200-series and even the older Radeon 7000-series graphics cards.

Considering that, the rumors, and the lack of technical details provided for these new 300-series graphics cards, you’ll definitely want to wait for reviews to hit before you pick up one of these, even if you could buy one Thursday.
