ASUS Radeon R9 Fury STRIX Will be Launched on July 14: Rumor
AMD recently introduced the Radeon R9 Fury non-X graphics card. During the formal announcement, the company revealed that the card featuring Fiji PRO GPU will come in custom variants, and the only two AIB partners to offer the R9 Fury card are ASUS and Sapphire.
Now a new report has surfaced online which claims that ASUS is readying its Fury-based graphics card, the R9 Fury STRIX, and that the card could be available very soon – most probably on July 14.
The ASUS Radeon R9 Fury STRIX graphics card will come equipped with the DirectCU III triple-fan cooling solution that has already featured on the GTX 980 Ti STRIX and R9 390X STRIX cards. The three wing-blade 0 dB fans are designed to cool off the two 10 mm heat pipes running through the heatsink fins.
Although we don’t have details yet on the specifics, images from the press deck leak reveal that the newest card from ASUS features a custom-design PCB. It is firmly in the 30 cm-ish territory which makes it significantly longer than Sapphire’s version.
As for display output, the card includes a DVI connector, in addition to three DisplayPorts, and an HDMI connector. The reference design of AMD’s Fury calls for an Engine clock of 1000 MHz.
The base clock of the R9 Fury STRIX has not been revealed, but the 4 GB of HBM is expected to be clocked at 500MHz with 512 GBps effective bandwidth.
No pricing details for the card are available as of yet.
