Questions and Answers

  • Question: I have an option to sell my GF GTX 1060 3gb Zotac AMP!Edition for 240euro and buy a 8month old r9 fury Nitro for 210e, its working great. Is this a good replacement/upgrade?

    Thanks for help

    Answer: to be honest i have hard time recommending the fury series at such low resolution. the fury usually shine the best at much higher resolution (like 4k) but at such very high res it's 4GB of VRAM can be an issue unless AMD make specific optimization to that game. and don't be surprise if in certain title (at 1080p) the Fury barely any faster than your current 1060 3GB. it is because of this inconsistency that i having hard time recommending the fury series. back when the price still not inflated to super crazy level because of mining if you only play at 1080p i would recommend RX480/580 more over the fury even if the fury can be had just for a bit more.

  • Question: Hi,

    i can get both the rx 480 and the r9 fury for the same price or a gtx 1060 for more. ( all the cards are sealed and brand new )

    I currently have a 1080p 60Hz single monitor setup and plan on getting 1440p but not too soon.

    I'd like to keep the card for at least 3 years to come, i don't like upgrading that often. which one of them would be the best option for my case?

    please share your opinions.

    Answer: For this price, R9 Fury of course... but in order to utilize it, you may need a new power supply, also get a 1440p monitor now. It can deliver 1440p 60 fps @high quality... 3 years from now may be medium.

    480 and 1060 are only good for 1080p 60pHz and you can have solid 3 years with them.

    You can run R9 Fury at 1080p 60pHz, but it is an overkill.

  • Question: Should i get an

    R9 fury nitro Tri-X?


    Gigabyte GTX 1060?

    Which will be better?

    Answer: Define "better"
    On tom's gpu hierarchy list, both cards are in the same performance tier.
    Benchmarks show slightly better performance for the Fury X, but in actual gameplay, you will be hard pressed to tell the difference.

    FuryX needs a psu with two 8 pin aux pcie connectors. That is 150w more than what a GTX1060 needs.
    Even assuming you have the psu capability, the FuryX is going to generate lots of case heat that needs to be addressed.

    Do you have a AMD or Nvidia preference?

  • Question: Based on the latest techpowerup performance summary on Dec 14th, 2016 and new AMD drivers(same with RX 480)

    R9 Fury is better than 1060 6gb by 4% on 1080p , 8% in 1440p , 18% in 3840x2160 at the same price point.

    I guess its perfect for those who want a little extra juice out of a gtx 1060 6gb without Overclocking their card.Avoiding FPS dips under 60 on 1080p etc

    Answer: Not to sound improper here, but do you have a question? Or are you just reporting "news" from techpowerup?

  • Question: So in my current pcpartpicker build, there is a gtx 1060 FTW 6gb. I was trying to shave off some money and I found out that there was an R9 Fury going for 30 dollars less than the 1060. I looked at user benchmark and found out that the R9 Fury was faster. Should I go for the fury or stay with the 1060 or perhaps an Rx 480? Temps do not really matter for me because it is hot where I live and I have to have the air conditioner on all day.
