2-way Radeon R9 Fury X vs. GeForce GTX Titan X at 11,520 x 2160

VRAM Consumption


Note: There is no perfect way of measuring VRAM consumption. We've used GPU-Z to measure the VRAM consumption, but GPU-Z only reports the amount of VRAM the game has requested to use at any given time, and not the actual VRAM being used at that time. It's close, but it's not precise.




For our testing, we found that the most VRAM intensive game is Grand Theft Auto V using a huge 6.1GB of VRAM. Coming in second was Shadow of Mordor consuming 5.4GB while Battlefield 4 used 4.1GB. In all of these games, the Fury X cards were exhibiting bad stuttering, as we were blowing way past the 4GB of framebuffer on AMD's card.




Power Consumption


NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture is much more power efficient compared to AMD's Fiji architecture, even with the power savings that HBM provides to the Fury X. Given that, take a look at the power consumption numbers yourself.




NVIDIA's GeForce GTX Titan X cards in SLI are using around 540W of power, compared to the 530W used by the Fury X - a 10W win to AMD. With the single-card solution, the Titan X beats the Fury X by quite a margin - 50W to be exact.
