ASUS R9 Fury DC3 Review


When the R9 290X and R9 290 appeared we took the slightly controversial stance that the regular R9 290 had enough performance within it that, given the price difference between the two cards, it was the better buy.

Understandably not everyone agreed with this opinion. That's the fun of opinions, they create discourse. When the Fury X appeared we were bowled over by its capabilities, particularly given it's relatively low price point when compared to the offerings from nVidia. It's set a marker for the regular Fury to attempt to repeat the success of the 290, despite the already crowded AMD range containing the R9 390X and R9 Fury X. It doesn't seem there is anywhere left for it to squeeze into.

Perhaps worries about this niche market sector are why AMD are being so restrictive in which companies are allowed to produce variants of the R9 Fury. Fortunately one of the companies that is allowed to is ASUS, and they have gone all out in creating the R9 Fury Strix. A full size PCB equipped with their Direct CU III cooler, there should be much to like.
