PowerColor R9 Fury Graphics Card Announced
AMD launched the Radeon R9 Fury (non-X) last week, and so far we’ve seen two AIB partners, Asus and Sapphire, announcing their Tri-X variant and the Strix R9 Fury respectively. PowerColor is the latest to join the graphics card fray, with its own card, which it simply names the PowerColor R9 Fury.
“TUL Corporation, a leading and innovative manufacturer of AMD video cards since 1997, has proudly announced a new video card that has the capability of the highest gaming power in the most advanced GPU ever created for PC gaming,” the company wrote in the press release.
“The PowerColor R9 Fury 4GB HBM is the world’s first video card with AMD-pioneered High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) integrated on-chip delivering 60% more memory bandwidth over GDDR5 powering performance and bleeding-edge technology.”
As for the spec-list of the new PowerColor R9 Fury, the card is based on the Fiji Pro GPU running at a reference clock speed of 1000 MHz, with the memory clocked at an effective speed of 1.0 GHz. The low memory speed is attributed to AMD-pioneered HBM integrated on-chip, along with a 4096-bit memory interface.
Like Sapphire’s version, this newest card features the same PCB as a reference Fury X. The air cooling system on the card uses three of 90mm fans, 6 of 8 mm heat pipes and a black NI plating clip.
In addition, the PowerColor R9 Fury packs a two-position BIOS toggle switch on the side that comes in handy while overclocking the card heavily, especially when you manage to find your way to an irrecoverable overclock. Display outputs consist of 3 Display Port and 1 HDMI connector.
PowerColor is yet to reveal details about pricing and availability of their graphics card.
