XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation (R9-FURY-4TF9)

XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation A Closer Look


XFX packed the XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation card with its Dissipation cooling solution but previously we’ve seen Double Dissipation and XFX ran with that industry leading air cooling solution and expanded it to Triple Dissipation packing three 90 mm whisper quiet IP-5X dust resistant fans on a full length cowling with six 8 mm heat pipes.


Getting a peek at the rear of the XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation you can see the PCB on the card is about 2/3 the length of the card and the remainder of the length is an open-backed design and taken up by the six 8 mm heatpipes and the cooling fins. The card is quite hefty as far as weight goes so XFX extended the metal frame all the way to the end of the card but did so in an open-backed design for better cooling and to keep the card from sagging under its own weight.

Looking top down on the card you can see the two 8 pin PCIe connectors needed to power the card halfway down the video card which will leave a little PSU cable exposed which might bother some tight wiring fanatics but given the extra cooling capacity of the Triple Dissipation solution we don’t mind the somewhat awkward PSU connector placement. The TDP on the XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation is 275 W so XFX has gone above and beyond on the thermal dissipation needs of this behemoth card.


Shown from the end you get an eagle’s eye view of the six 8 mm heatpipes, now heatpipes are measured from an outside diameter so the inside diameter of these pipes is approx 6 mm. So you take a 6 mm heatpipe the interior is 4 mm which means that the 8 mm heatpipe design has about 50% more actual capacity than the 6 mm design used on most video cards. A larger diameter means a larger interior and that translates to more cooling. The Fury series of cards need enough cooling that initial offerings on AMD reference designs were based on a water cooling solution. now we might take some heat for saying it but we prefer the Air Cooled models of R9 Fury over the water-cooled solutions for the simple reason they are easier to install and the single fan radiator takes up case room and leaves black rubber hoses trailing across the rigs interior.


The XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation comes in at 12.4 inches long (315 mm) so check your chassis for compatibility but most people buying an XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation will be enthusiasts and already know that the card will fit. For that matter most mid tower chassis will accommodate full length video cards if they are a modern design. Even a lot of micro-ATX and Mini-ATX chassis allow for a monster GPU and we’d actually like to see one of these beasts mounted in a little Lan chassis.



We aren’t looking at much of a bundle with the XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation and you get a driver disc and Warranty Card but noticeably absent is the inclusion of a game code which we always like to see on Flagship video cards. Face it you spring $550 on a card you might not have the scratch to buy a Video Game and we all now that a new video card calls for a new game to test it on.


XFX did throw a couple of 6 pin PCIe to 8 pin PCIe power adapters into the bundle which are handy to have in the collection but we much prefer to use 8 pin native built into the power supply or modular cables than any type of adapter setup. This is a $550 video card so lets not skimp on the PSU investment.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.


  1. You’ve made an error and put the BF4 4K table in where the Far Cry 4 4K table should be. You’ve even written you paragraph below based on the wrong results!

    Try proof reading.

  3. Hi Mark. I would like to see this result again with the XFX Fury card but this time in Ultra Wide monitor. Like 3440×1440 to as high as 3800×1600 21:9 to put that bandwidth to the tests. I strongly suggesting 1000’s series added to the test with the former 900’s Nvdia card just for fairs comparison as the driver relive update make the older same architect chip perform better. It only a outdated model but would it be fair those who brought the HD 7000’s, R9 200x Hawaii, R9 300x Refresh, and the Fury Nano card hold today in future investment and the 290x being the best investment card of the series in my opinion. With or without the Nvdia 1000’s or AMD 400’s is up to you.
