Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Apparently Releasing Tomorrow
AMD’s design partner Sapphire is apparently prepping to launch smaller models of the flagship Fury X.

Images and specs for the upcoming Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury graphics card have already been leaked out. According to the revealed details, Sapphire will offer the R9 Fury in two versions that will differ only in terms of their clock speeds.
The Sapphire R9 Fury with SKU number 11247-01-40G comes clocked at 1000 MHz clock, while the Sapphire R9 Fury with SKU number 11247-01-40G delivers a 1040 MHz clock speed. Both cards have 4GB of 4096-bit HMB memory clocked at 500MHz and appear to feature the same PCB layout, Sapphire Tri-X GPU Cooler and a backplate.
The Fiji Pro powered R9 Fury will have 56 of its 64 compute units enabled for a total of 3584 stream processors. Both Sapphire R9 Fury SKUs use ‘AMD original PCB design’ and have enhanced 6 phase power design for GPU VDDC. Additionally, they offer 3x DisplayPort 1.2 and a single HDMI (1.4a) port.
Pricing was not leaked out, but they are likely to cost around the $550 mark.
