AMD Radeon R9 Fury Review: Fiji On Air Tested

GTA V Gaming Performance

Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series has been wildly successful for many years now, offering some of the edgiest story lines, game play tactics and objectives the gaming industry has ever seen. With psychopathic main characters, you are left in the depraved communities of Los Santos and Blaine County, to walk a path few would dare choose in real life, committing nefarious acts, robbing and pillaging to complete your objectives. In short, it's rather entertaining that you're tasked with leaving a virtual world worse off than you found it, consequences be damned. But if you're reading this, you're probably well aware of this game's story line, and the fact that it requires some serious GPU horsepower to run at smooth frame rates.

Small GTA V 006

Rockstar’s PC port of GTA V was well worth the wait, giving users control over every aspect of their graphical experience, with good optimizations for both low-end and high-end hardware.

With the array of options, we wanted to push the hardware but also achieve 60+ FPS across both 1440p and 4K gameplay. So at 1440p we switched all the quality knobs to Very High, turned on FXAA, and turned off Ambient Occlusion and Tessellation.

As you can see, 1440p results are curious, with the Fury and GTX 980 deadlocked at an average 92 FPS. The 980 Ti pulls way ahead of both Fury and Fury X with 109 FPS.

At 4K resolution the results resemble normalcy again, with the Fury lodged right in between the 980 and 980 Ti.

In both 1440p and 4K resolutions, the Fury is only 2% and 1% slower than the Fury X, respectively. Three more games to go, let’s jump into the Tomb Raider benchmark to see if this trend continues.
