AMD R9 Fury X2 PCB Pictured

The PCB for AMD's R9 Fury X2 has just been pictured. It is surprisingly small for the power it is intended to pack.



Read more on the AMD R9 Fury X2 here.

AMD has said tonight that the R9 Fury X2 will be releasing at some point in fall 2015, which likely means that their are yield issues with AMD's Fiji GPUs due to it's all new memory architecture.
They are no yield issues. HBM1 has been in production for 2 years, and in mass production for 9 months.. Think they are past that and past those rumors

Only 2 X 8 Pin power connectors ?

I don't think so

yeah, but the process of using it with GPUs is still in it's infancy. AMD need to fabricate a large GPU die on an interposer which will also have the HBM on it. The parts might be ok to produce, but putting them together is tricky.

It is much harder to produce than just placing HBM beside a GPU. Remember that AMD has staggered the launch of all Fiji based products. The Fury non-x will not come until almost a month after the Fury X.

You realize it's been in development for GPUs for the past 7 years with AMD and Hynix working together right? I'm pretty positive it's not in the infancy stage

Just because they stagger launches, doesn't indicate yield issues.. if that was the case Nvidia would be having yield issues constantly with the Titan release than Ti version after. It's just for marketing tbh.

yeah staggering launches is typical in this industry, as the 2nd best GPU is almost always the better purchase money wise.

Everything is hinting at this GPU being in short supply, while AMD are certainly not having yield issues now, AMD certainly did.

AMD have had PCs with this GPU in it floating around for ages, if the rumors i hear are correct.

Apparently Oculus were using a fury in a system at Gamescom earlier this year, but nobody was allowed to see it.
