Gaming Rig & Fury X Specifications
What makes my review a bit more unique than other Fury X reviews on the web is that I’m still using the X58. Yes, the 2008 platform that contains Intels 1st generation Nahelem based CPUs and technology. Intel is now moving into their 5th generation. That means I’m sporting PCIe 2.0, however I am running a highly overclocked X5660. I needed to eliminate as many bottlenecks as I could to squeeze out as much performance as I could. Fury X is manufactured to use PCIe 3.0. PCIe is backwards compatible so no issues here. Fury X is a beast with 4096 stream processors, 8.9 billion transistors and can get up to 8.6 Tflops. Let’s see what my X58 beast & Fury X can accomplish together. To be honest I'm sick and tired of seeing the 1080p benchmarks with high end cards. Seriously this isn't the mid-range GPU area. If you are spending more than $300 for a GPU you must be looking to max out games higher than the 1080p resolution. We are literally getting hundreds of frames @ 1080p at this point. All of my benchmarks will use 1440p & 4K resolutions.
