R9 FURY with i7-4790K 1080p, 1440p, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality

At 1440p, R9 FURY can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. It is worth noting that the R9 FURY is a very power hungry card and requires a decent power supply unit. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 FURY can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

The good news is, with the release of the R9 FURY X, the R9 FURY 's price is getting more discount. The R9 FURY is much more expensive than the R9 390 as it costs a whopping $ 549. Compare this to the R9 390, AMD Radeon R9 390X, which came originally at a price of $ 329, $ 429. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA closest equivalent card is the GTX 980 which costs $ 549.

Unfortunately, gaming performance was not quite as impressive. Even if the R9 FURY consistently delivers frame rate increases over the R9 390, AMD Radeon R9 390X, the gain is not much to justify an upgrade. Whether it is a justifiable upgrade depends on what graphics card you are upgrading from. Users with a R9 390, AMD Radeon R9 390X will not see a remarkable increase in frame rates after paying more for this R9 FURY. Similarly, those holding onto GTX 980 's GTX 780 graphics cards will not have a reason to jump teams yet.

For 1080p Full HD, we were able to play GreedFall, Final Fantasy XV, F1 2019, Far Cry New Dawn, Apex Legends at 61 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps. For 1440p Quad HD, we were able to play Strange Brigade, World War Z, Battlefield V, Fallout 76 at 61 fps to 72 fps and kept frame rates hovering around 67 fps.
