AMD has officially launched the Radeon R9 Fury X today! The card we have been hearing so much about for the past month or so is finally here. The card is specifically designed to compete with NVIDIA’s high-end offerings like the GeForce GTX Titan X and the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
AMD’s R9 Nano was announced yesterday at AMD’s event yesterday and on our original post I said it could be a game-changer for AMD and I really believe that. Since its unveiling more information about the card has been released and we have that for you today.
During AMD’s presentation yesterday they mentioned a dual Fiji card, although they didn’t show it. Later that night they showed it at a presentation at the PC Gaming Show and I do have to say it is quite impressive!
The guys over at PC Perspective have leaked the best photos we have seen of the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. These photos are the most detailed and they actually show the card and radiator in one shot. The sample that is being shown looks more polished than the other versions we have seen and could possibly be the final version of the card.
We have been speculating that the official name for AMD’s upcoming flagship graphics card would be called Radeon Fury X, and it looks like we were very close. According to the latest leaked slides the official name of the card will be called AMD Radeon R9 Fury X.
With the launch of AMD’s Fury X graphics card being less than a week away more leaked photos of the card have hit the web! These new shots reveal more details about the card and give us our first look at the backplate as well!
This looks to be the first Radeon R9 300 series graphics card that we’ve seen at Computex! It is the PowerColor R9 390X Devil 13 and it has a custom hybrid cooling design with a closed loop 120 mm radiator system cooling the GPU and a 120 mm fan cooling the cards VRMs.
With all of the tech media at Computex we expected to hear some news or leaks about AMD’s upcoming Fiji graphics card. As we talked about earlier the flagship called will be called Radeon Fury and AMD internally is calling it Fury X. Behind closed doors at Computex an AMD partner was showing the card to journalists.
We have been hearing about ASUS’s new DirectCU III technology for a few days and now we have a real photo of it! It will debut on the ASUS STRIX GTX 980 Ti graphics card. Unlike most graphics card cooling solutions from ASUS this new cooler will feature a triple-fan design. We assume that this new cooler was designed for AMD’s upcoming Radeon 300 Series, but as we said it will be found on the STRIX 980 Ti first.
Typical factory overclocks are pretty low and conservative, especially when it comes to higher-end graphics cards. Well Zotac is looking to change that with their GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme graphics card that will ship with a massive 25% overclock!
