AMD has enabled 56 of the 64 GCN compute units on the Fiji silicon, this gives the card 3548 stream processors, 224 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 4GB of memory across a 4096-bit wide HBM interface. The core is clock at 1000 MHz with the memory at 500 MHz (512 GB/s). Unlike the Fury X the R9 Fury will be an air-cooled card.

AMD is allowing its board partners to create custom versions of the card so expect those in the coming weeks. The card is priced at $549.
