Gigabyte Unveils WindForce 3X Radeon R9 Fury

AMD’s R9 Fury graphics card utilizes 3,584 shaders, 224 textures units and 4GB of high-bandwidth memory. Compared to the Fury Nano and Fury X, the Fury is the cheapest in the Fiji line-up and adopts a more traditional design philosophy. The Windforce X3 edition opts for a 3 fan design and core clock reaching 1010MHz. This is a fairly small boost from the reference figure of 1000MHz. Although, the advanced cooling solution could allow for some overclocking headroom.

In terms of power requirements, the graphics card contains two PCI-E 8 pin connectors. Apart from that, the power delivery and other aspects of the PCB are still unknown. However, the OC edition could result in chip binning to find the most overclockable units available.

The rear I/O features a single HDMI port, three DisplayPorts and a Dual-Link DVI-I connector. There is also a hefty backplate which adds a premium feel and reduces GPU droop. As with any Gigabyte graphics card, the Fury WindForce X3 OC includes  3-year warranty period. I’m fascinated to see what kind of overclocking potential there is given the limited boosts so far on the Fiji architecture.

Despite this, it’s great to see more HBM-based graphics cards becoming commonplace as supply issues are reduced.
