Radeon R9 Fury X Quad Crossfire Appears in 3D Benchmark Hall of Fame (but slower than Titan X)

It seems that the new AMD Radeon R9 Fury X is able to compete with the GeForce GTX 980 Ti and Titan X in configurations with 4 graphics cards as Pulse88 from Sweden entered the HWBOT Hall of Fame of both 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra and 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme with quad crossfire Fury X system.

In the most demanding 3D benchmark currently available for download, Pulse88 scores 16369 points with 4x Radeon R9 Fury X at 1124/550 MHz, cooled with the stock all-in-one cooler. Combined with a Core i7 5960X at 5 GHz, this is more than 2000 points lower than Gunslinger's water cooled 4-Way GeForce GTX Titan X system. Gunslinger uses a 5.4GHz CPU and his 4 GeForce GTX Titan X cards are clocked at a respectable 1515/2000 MHz. With his score of 16369, Pulse88 is currently ranked 3rd overall for 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra.

One notch down in 3D intensive benchmarks is 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, where Pulse88 scores 27927 points with his four Radeon R9 Fury X graphics cards. With the same CPU clocked at 5GHz, that is 1600 points lowed than Gunslingers 4-Way GeForce GTX Titan X cooled by custom water cooling. The other components of the Fury X system are: G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 memory, the ASUS Rampage V Extreme motherboard, a HyperX SSD and (at least one) SilverStone 1500W power supply.

So with LN2 and a lot of voltage it will probably beat it.

Belgium Massman says:

Yeah, but then again ... GeForce would scale too

Czech Republic buildzoid says:

Yeah but 980Tis top out in the 2000mhz area that's only 7% over the TITAN-X from K|NGP|N. If XA's Fury is anything to go by Fury Xs should be able to do 1400-1500 maybe be even 1600mhz on LN2 with volts that's 29% above Pulse88's clocks. Also if the HBM can hit 1Ghz consistently on LN2 then the fury would be looking at maybe 35% more Graphics score. But this is all theory IRL it could get very interesting since CF scales better and you can run asymmetrical CF clocks. So you could do something like 1525/1000 1470/1000 1440/1000 1430/1000 on the Furys whereas the 980Tis are locked to running at the same speed as the worst card. And asymmetrical scales just fine because AMD doesn't frame pace on HW level. But that's all theory. IRL it could get very interesting.
