First Look at AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Review Samples
Robert Ainsworth / 1 year ago
Pictures have been released online of the all new AMD Radeon Fury X samples. A chap over at PCPop managed to find one and post some pictures. The new GPU is seen packaged in a very sturdy and fancy box with the well-known AMD logo on it. No sign of a dedicated Fury logo surprises me, there is also no sign of a logo on any of the documentation and manuals of the Fury logo.
The card itself has 4 logos printed on it, an LED one on the side, a red Radeon logo on the front, a laser etched one on the I/O ports and the final one on the fan; none of which even states Fury.
The GPU looks to be made of a nice aluminium casting, finished in a soft to touch black coating and a black gloss. The front plate is removable and AMD are stating that they expect modders to design their own plates with 3d printing systems. It won’t affect the cards functionality or cooling, as the cooling will be done by the attached water cooling loop with a radiator.
From the pictures below we can see that the cooling loop is shielded with a very nice and clean-looking braiding which then connects into a single 90mm radiator and fan. The cards official TDP is 275w but the connectors and PCI slot can give up to 375W.
And finally, the first GPU-Z screenshot of the new card:
Please note that the bandwith shown is incorrect (should be 512gb/s) but I’m sure this will be because the creator of GPU-Z needs to make a few tweaks in order to cope with the new chip.
