R9 Fury X

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi everyone, I'm considering changing out my FirePro W8100 and was offered a R9 Fury X, which on paper looks better for Single Floating Point calculations, however I am unsure of whether this is useful for Houdini or if I am to look for something that performs better with Double Precission Floating Point?

Budget is very limited, so unfortunately no money for Titan X or 1080, etc.

Would a Fury X be a viable option over the W8100?

 

Cheers

As it stands double precision is almost entirely irrelevant for Houdini OpenCL calculations. It is used only as an accumulation buffer to help prevent rounding errors.

So would the Fury X be a good "upgrade" or Replacement?

I know the limitation would be the VRAM as it's only 4GB.
But FP32 is theoretically over 2x on the Fury X compared to the W8100.

It looks super powerfull for anything that processes on the GPU.
