At E3 2015 AMD announced their long awaited Fury line of GPUs using the “Fiji” silicon. The models in the line up are the Fury X, Fury X2, Fury, and the Fury Nano. AMD’s flagship GPU; the Fury X was released into the review channel first. A couple of weeks later the Fury was released. The second model to carry the Fury name is slightly different than its sibling. Instead of a water cooler, the Fury uses air cooling. Sapphire is the largest AMD partner and brings their version of the Fury to market. The Sapphire Tri-X Radeon R9 Fury features a triple fan cooler and dual BIOS. Over the last little while, Sapphire has been focusing heavily on bringing well performing yet extremely quiet cooling to market. The Vapor-X series and the previous Tri-X series of coolers really did keep the previous AMD products cool while keeping noise to a minimum. It will be interesting to see how the Tri-X solution for the R9 Fury performs.

Our sample did not come in a retail box nor did we get any accessories with it, but I was assured by Sapphire the card we received was in fact a retail version of the card albeit an early version.
