AMD Radeon R9 Fury Nano Review - Benchmarks Review

Sections

How We Tested

We’ve locked and loaded eight games for this GPU test. Our five normal games are Battlefield 4, BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light and Batman: Arkham Origins. We’ve also added Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Tomb Raider and Grand Theft Auto V to our slate of test titles.

We’ve tested at 2,560 x 1,440 and 3,840 x 2,160 to see how the Fury Nano will handle high-resolution single screens. We’ve run our tests at 1080p, even though it’s almost a moot point – this card is powerful enough to blast through any game at that lower resolution.

We’ve used 3DMark’s Fire Strike test and four Unigine Heaven benchmarks to test synthetic performance, and we’ve taken idle and load temperatures and power requirements to see which card is the coolest and most frugal.

Our test rig consists of an Asus X79-Deluxe motherboard, Intel Core i7-4960X processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB hard disk.

To obtain prices for each card, we visited www.overclockers.co.uk and noted down the cheapest stock-speed card we could find. We’ll be referring to the various overclocked and tweaked models available for each GPU later on in the review, which will be more expensive.
