HWM (Malaysia) - - LAB EXAM -

by AMD’s new flag­ship card, the Radeon R9 Fury X, is fi­nally re­leased af­ter nearly two long years of an­tic­i­pa­tion from the com­mu­nity (AMD’s last sin­gle GPU flag­ship, the R9 290X, was an­nounced back in 2013). This month, the card has fi­nally ar­rived in our lab, truth be told, we couldn’t be more ex­cited to test out what AMD has claimed to be its crown­ing glory, and a solid com­peti­tor against its com­peti­tor. So, what’s new with the Fury X, and what makes it so spe­cial? The an­swer to that ques­tion can be sum­ma­rized into three sim­ple words: High Band­width Mem­ory, or sim­ply HBM, as AMD calls it. We also know your next ques­tion: What is HBM, and how is it dif­fer­ent from the cur­rent GPU mem­ory for­mat?
