Sapphire Officially Announces Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury
Sapphire has officially announced the smaller version of AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury, the Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury graphics card.
It is also being considered as the water-cooled Radeon R9 Fury X sibling with a cut-down version of Fiji GPU which has been packed inside the Fury X. The Fury is not available in reference design like the Radeon R9 Fury X; in fact, it is available in custom version.
Apparently, Sapphire Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury is the most competent version of Tri-X cooler. It features 224 texture units, 3,584 stream processors and core clock of 1000 MHz. It also has several heatpipes including four 6mm and two 8mm pipes. It also features an additional 10mm central pipe which is massively substantial for improved heat dissipation.
The three 90 mm dual ball-bearing fans stuck inside the cooler is what is expected to be a life changer, it is expected to increase the life span of the fans. Sapphire’s new Intelligent Fan Control technology is a nice touch, as when under minimum stress, the fans will automatically stop spinning. This eventually results in more peaceful sessions.
As far as the display connectors are concerned, there aren’t many. The Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury does not feature a DVI port and it has only one HDMI 1.4a output and three DisplayPort connectors. For better overclocking, the dual BIOS pushes the power up to 350 watts.
The Sapphire Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury will be available for $888 locally from retailers and will hit the shelves starting tomorrow i.e. July 14. Another OC model is due to release but specifications about it remain unknown except for the fact that the core clock bumps from 1,040MHz from 1,000MHz.
