Sapphire's Aftermarket AMD R9 Fury Tri-X has been revealed, pretty much confirming the GPUs specifications and giving us our first ever glimpse of AMD's R9 Fury GPU. 

Below are the leaked specifications of AMD's R9 Fury X, showing a 12.5% decrease on core count when compared to AMD's R9 Fury X and a 5% (50MHz) decrease in GPU core clock speeds. memory Speeds for this GPU will remain at the same 500MHz as the R9 Fury X, giving the R9 Fury the same 512GB/s of memory bandwidth.

Sapphire Aftermarket R9 Fury Revealed  

 

When looking at Sapphires R9 Fury we can see that the company is making two models of the GPU, one model which will be at the R9 Fury's reference clock speed of 1000 MHz and a higher clocked model which will be clocked at 1040 MHz.

We can see that the Air cooled version of this GPU will be using AMD's reference PCB, with a large 3 fan cooler which simply makes the GPU look oversized, but does have the added advantage of making this GPU easier to watercool.  We can see from picture of the rear of this GPU below that this GPU will have roughly an extra 50% in length which is only just the cooler. 

Personally I would have preferred it if Sapphire had extended the PCB or at least the backplate to the end of the GPU in order to make it's cooler look less oversized, but I guess that is the price of water cooling support.

The AMD R9 Fury will be coming to the market over the next few weeks, filling the gap between the AMD R9 390X and their flagship Fury X GPU.

With AMD being so competitive in terms of price to performance right now, it is expected that over the next few weeks Nvidia will respond by reducing the prices of their GT 970 and GTX 980 GPUs.

I dont like the extended cooler!

The card is tiny, the aftermarket cooler should show this off!Quote

Probably the card is meant for overclocking.. We might get to see the dual-x desing on the fury tooQuote

That's a big ass cooler... I don't mind it. It'd probably suit my case better.Quote

But that'd look crap in a proper sized case!Quote

It would've been a cool feature if there were screw holes on the backside of the exposed cooler, and a removable low profile fan was there for push pull. Don't know how effective it would be, but every little helps when overclocking. I say removable so when the card is in crossfire the sandwiched fan can be removed...Quote
