1080p Benchmark Performance Thoughts

I decided to spend many more hours on benchmark charts for you guys, so I could illustrate in the previous pages how the Radeon R9 Fury X stacks up against ALL of the graphics cards -- but in these charts, I've used only AMD Radeon graphics cards to see how the Fury X stacks up against its own Radeon brethren.

Starting with Shadow of War at 1080p we see the higher memory bandwidth of the HBM2-based Radeon RX Vega 56 and Vega 64 as well as the Radeon VII pulling way far and out from the Fury X. The faster GDDR6 memory on the Navi-based Radeon RX 5000 series cards see it soar ahead of the HBM(1) on the Fury X.

The same goes for Metro Exodus, where the HBM2/GDDR6 based Radeon cards pull way ahead -- the previous-gen and HBM1-based cards are stuck at 44FPS and below here at 1080p.

Far Cry New Dawn is a little more forgiving, but we still see the Radeon R9 Fury X falling in between the Radeon RX 500 series cards. But wow-oh-wow, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider (which is an AMD friendly game) smacks the R9 Fury X all over the place -- it is the second slowest Radeon in the stack losing to the Radeon RX 480.
