AMD R9 Fury X Review

So often a reference Radeon has been equipped with a single wheezy fan which didn't put their GPUs in the best light. Eventually partner cards appeared with better cooling but by then the "toasty" Radeon belief had stuck. The decision to go with an AIO has not only guaranteed low temperatures and equally low noise, but freshened up the design to really separate it from the iterative models of old.

It might seem like a whole bunch of nothing, but this cover can be removed, painted, cut, replaced etc etc. Customisation ahoy thanks to a blank slate.

It's curious to see AMD completely abandon DVI and go with DisplayPort/HDMI combination, but this encapsulates the modern ideas behind the Fury X. Nearly all of us have HDMI or DisplayPort monitors, and certainly if you're seeking to game at the kind of resolutions this is targeted towards then you definitely will.

Power is provided by an 8+8 configuration, keeping the Fury X supplied with juice under even the most demanding situations.

I don't think they made it so small to show off, they made it small because that's all the size it needed to be because they didn't need to spread it out to fit the memory on it like they used to, from an engineering perspective and from a customers perspective there is no reason to make something bigger if it doesn't need to be.. it would just be a waste of material and a waste of money.Quote

Well im not as blown away as what i expected.

But its a good card! The fact it can out perform the 295X2 says alot, im hoping with drivers and Windows 10 this becomes a beast.

The card was all sold out in 6 minutes, i sadly never got my order in quick enough, but after reading the review, im happy to wait for a few weeks!Quote

Seems like the Pro might be the one to wait for. This card is good but it seems to be selling very quickly.

I also don't like the size still. Hopefully its bigger with the pro.Quote
