Radeon R9 Fury X vs Radeon RX 6500 XT specs and performance

For gaming, the Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card is better than the Radeon R9 Fury X in our tests.

As stated by the manufacturer, they both have the same amount of memory at 4 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the Radeon RX 6500 XT has a significantly lower TDP at 107 W when compared to the Radeon R9 Fury X at 275 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the Radeon RX 6500 XT over the Radeon R9 Fury X.
