AMD has finally lifted the curtains and shown the world the full details about its forthcoming new GPU, Fury, and we have some details about Asus' Fury card.
Fury is a slightly cut-down version of the recently released Fury X. It features fewer shader cores and texture units, and it runs at a slightly lower clock speed. Furthermore, there is no reference cooler design, and partners will be adding their own heatsink designs. (We have a full review on Sapphire's Fury Tri-X, but that's not the only card that will be available next week.)
Asus will be launching its own Fury-based graphics card on July 14, the Asus Strix Radeon R9 Fury. The card will come equipped with three wing-blade 0 dB fans, which are used to cool off the two 10 mm heat pipes running through the heatsink fins. Asus has also included what it calls Auto-Extreme Technology with Super Allow Power II, which is the latest advancement in the company's power delivery hardware. It also comes equipped with a full-length back-plate.
Although we don't have details yet on the specifics, it is clear from the images that Asus has redesigned the PCB for its Fury card. It is significantly longer than Sapphire's version, which uses AMD's reference PCB design.
The reference design of AMD's Fury calls for an Engine clock of 1000 MHz. The clock speed of the Strix R9 Fury has not yet been released, but with Asus' track record of overclocking the Strix lineup, it safe to assume this card will have a small frequency bump.
