The Strix range is expanding faster than our stomachs on curry night. Similarly to the MSI Dragon it appears that ASUS are becoming less and less committed to the owl beyond plastering it on their packaging. How deeply this affects you depends entirely upon how you viewed the initial Strix products. We care mainly about performance with looks a nice bonus, so it's not a problem here.

The DirectCU III cooler is a work of art and the effort ASUS have put into the Fury to make it a proper full-size card rather than sticking a big cooler onto the reduced PCB is excellent. We saw recently how well the DC3 cooler works and knowing that AMD are finally over their heat issues this should be a cool card with plenty of thermal headroom. That level of detail can be best expressed with the obverse view. Crisp screen printing allied to a gorgeous brushed backplate is a treat for the eyes indeed.

Speaking of things that are a work of art, look at those heatpipes. An incredible exercise in creating maximum surface area in the smallest of spaces. You could stare at them for hours without the prowess of their engineering quality diminishing.

The business end of the R9 Fury DC3 is formed of two 8pin PCIe power inputs, with 3 DisplayPorts, a DVI and an HDMI covering the output end of the equation. It must be time to see how the Fury performs.
