    Good showing generally. The tier down from the halo product has always been the most interest IMO.

    Not bad at all. Slightly overpriced at 450, but no doubt there will be some price shuffling after a few weeks anyway.

    I can see one of these ending up in my system.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    Very tempted, very close to the Fury X in performance and a good price, I can see this card doing well.

    Hoping it does for AMD's sake they could do with a good cash cow atm.

    Shame the cooler makes it a longer card, but is a plus having not to find a place for the water cooling rad. Even if the temps do rise due to the air cooling good to read the noise level are virtually the same as the ref water cooled card.

    You think this card is overpriced ? It seems to provide better performance than the 980 by a considerable margin and only costs 10% more (most likely the price will go down as well), seems like a solid card to me!

    It was a listing cock up for a Fury X.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    This is a very tempting card... very tempting. For £100 less than the X your definitely dont lose £100 worth of performance. Somehow it comes out with pretty solid acoustics as well.

    ... where is my credit card...

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    The Asus seems a bit more efficient than the Sapphire one from the reviews I've seen:
    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/..._Strix/29.html
    http://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/...8#.VaBOBK6rSUk

    They both put it ~45W over the 980.

    However, Tom's has the Sapphire version and while the 980 power numbers line up at ~160W so probably a similar load the Sapphire Fury is 65W higher which lines up with Hexus' results if you consider they measured at the wall instead of just the card.

    With TPU's samples it actually comes in a bit above the Fury X in overall efficiency. The cut-down versions tend to lose a bit of efficiency so it looks like Asus did a good job with their custom board too.

    Edit: Yeah Anandtech have both cards and they've measured the power of the Strix to be a fair bit lower too.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    Although the Fury X maybe didn't quite perform as well as I'd been hoping, this seems like a damn good card for the money. Sapphire have done a good job with their cooler too.

    Performance per £ seems right on the mark, even if AMD can't yet compete with nVIDIA per Watt.

    I wonder if my H55 which is retro fitted to my 280x would fit on this.....

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    If AMD want to sell a lot of units, I think they should price this the same as the GTX980, and the 390X the same price as the 970. Obviously, the Fury X also needs a cut - I can't see why anyone would pick the Fury X over the 980Ti unless there was a significant price difference.

    Re: Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X OC

    This one may be worth waiting a few months on-when the prices usually drop to more reasonable numbers.
    I have a few cases that will handle the size and are needing a gpu upgrade. just not this price point. I am not sure it will pull any of the nvidia thinking long time amd buyers, though. i have been only amd for as many years as i have been non-mac..10-12 or so and all have been with amd/ati and i build my own ,so, look for bang for buck and have traded off a little performance, at times, to save a larger chunk of money. There has not been any small performance trade off, on paper or through the editorials i have read since the amd7900 series got rebadged. I currently have the dual x sapphire oc 7950 in one machine, it has been fine and quiet so , would be inclined to look that way again .
