The dust is still settling after the launch of our SAPPHIRE Tri-X Radeon R9 FURY graphics card. The clock is no longer ticking, the card is here and has been a star in a numerous publications throughout Internet. Let’s have a look at some of the coolest reviews of our furious new piece of hardware.
In any case, both are solid cards, but if we have to issue a recommendation then it’s hard to argue with the Sapphire Tri-X’s pricing and acoustics right now. It’s the quietest of the R9 Fury cards, and it’s slightly cheaper as well.
However the power and acoustics situation is very different. On its own the ASUS STRIX’s acoustics would look good, but compared to the Sapphire Tri-X’s deliciously absurd acoustics it’s the clear runner-up.
Fury is definitely a stronger launch than Fury X. Fury pricing seems to be between £80 and £180 less (£420-£450 compared to £529.99-£599.99) and there are no coil whine or pump issues to discuss today. This Tri-X cooler is the companies best cooler yet and reinforces Sapphire’s long history of producing the finest coolers for AMD cards.
Sapphire’s R9 Fury Tri-X OC is quiet when under the pixel hammer and priced at a level that makes it attractive to those who can’t, or don’t want to, go for the full-fat Fury X.
SAPPHIRE’s Tri-X R9 Fury is a great card, with stylish looks and great performance. I’d love to see what two of these in CrossFire are capable of.
