4K Benchmark Performance Thoughts

This is what I'm here for: 4K or 3840 x 2160.

AMD touted that its HBM and HBCC technologies would work wonders in high resolution gaming scenarios, so let's see how it holds up 5 years later.

Oh yeah -- it sucks.

Shadow of War? 33FPS average, beating out the Radeon RX 570/580/590 finally, but losing to the GTX 1070 and RX 5500 XT graphics cards. The Radeon RX 5700 XT on the other hand pushes out a much better 55FPS average.

The Radeon R9 Fury X gets it ass handed to it in Metro Exodus, where it is only capable of 15FPS at 4K. It matches the Radeon RX 480 (hah) but loses to every single Radeon RX 500 series card (haha). The Radeon RX 5500 XT has 20FPS here, while the flagship Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 XT pushes ahead with 33FPS average.

Far Cry New Dawn is still hardcore on the R9 Fury X, which manages just 26FPS average at 4K -- identical to the RX 570, and 3FPS behind the RX 580. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is just 1FPS off of 30FPS, this time matching the RX 5500 XT for once.
