[tweaktown] AMD Radeon R9 Fury X2 should see 12 TFLOPS of compute performance - Page 7

I do agree that such a card wouldn't be worth it over a 980 Ti since the price would almost definitely be higher and perform just slightly better + have the headaches of SLI. However, Nvidia could counter AMD's Fury X2 with dual GM204: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



That was from Jan 22: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sapphire/R9_390_Nitro/23.html

The Oculus Rift's res is 2160x1200 or 2,592,000 total pixels. FHD is 2,073,600 total pixels and WQHD is 3,686,400 total pixels so it's a bit closer to FHD (1920x1080) than WQHD (2560x1440). I could definitely see a dual GM204 card countering the Fury X2 (Since Fiji XT gets destroyed by GM200 at lower resolutions). Hell, they could potentially use the cut-down GM204 used in the 970 and clock it a bit higher + price it even cheaper than the Fury X2. I bet it would use less power as well and match the performance of the card.

Edit: Keep in mind that there have been 970s as small as this that have been created: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



Compared to a Fury Nano: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I can definitely see a dual GM204 card from Nvidia being close in size to the Fury X2. And we all know how much performance per inch matters these days. thumb.gif

Dual GPU cards typically OC worse than two standalone cards, so that may just about offset GM204's higher headroom.

Essentially what I was getting at is, there's no point in countering the Fury X2, especially this late in the game. The only point in making such a dual GM204 GTX 990 card would be for the performance/inch metric, well look at how well the Nano sold.

For those willing to tolerate multi-GPU for pure performance, buying two separate GM204 cards would still be a better deal. And those that don't want to put up with SLI will grab a 980 Ti instead. The potential market for a dual GM204 card is very small IMO.

For barely above 1080p? XD Remember, they can always just use full GM204 which is even faster and has no partitioning of memory.

I agree but you never know how it will play out with regards to VR. Maybe it will catch on and we'll see VR-capable systems in small form factors being released as a high-end alternative to consoles.

1 water block is not of concern to most enthusiasts, nor is space.

Dual GPU card's typically run slower, more power limited and run hotter.

I've never seen a dual GPU card run faster than two properly setup single cards using the same chips.

Depends what Dual GPU. AMD side yes. Nvidia no. My HD 6990 Oced better then both my HD 6970 or HD 6950.

This card is like nano, it caters for a specific niche market. People who wanted outright performance will not go for dual GPU cards. But its usually those who want something more compact like matx or even mitx. This Fury X2 on mitx in a small casing is going to be a killer.

Not everyone wants big bulky cases. Some wants small but powerful
