Heaven Benchmark with its current version 4.0 is a GPU-intensive benchmark that hammers graphics cards to the limits. This powerful tool can be effectively used to determine the stability of a GPU under extremely stressful conditions, as well as check the cooling system’s potential under maximum heat output. It provides completely unbiased results and generates true in-game rendering workloads across all platforms.
Unigine Heaven served up a 71.4 FPS score for the XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation and that’s a substantial gain over the R9 390.
Crank Unigine Heaven up to 1440p and the XFX R9 Fury Pro TD churns out 47.8 FPS coming in ahead of its little brother the Asus Strix 390X by over 5 FPS. Things have gotten a bit out of hand with all the variants when you consider 280, 280X, 380, 380X, 390, 390X, Fury and FuryX, On the XFX Fury Pro we are running 3584 Unified Shaders for around $500 quite the chunk of change but you increase the shaders to 4096 for the FuryX and we are in the $650 price range so maybe it’s time someone did a Price per Shader unit breakdown to see exactly where the GPU core variants lie on the price performance curve.

Fire Strike is a showcase DirectX 11 benchmark designed for today’s high-performance gaming PCs. It is our most ambitious and technical benchmark ever, featuring real-time graphics rendered with detail and complexity far beyond what is found in other benchmarks and games today.
Fire Strike is only available in the Windows editions.
We use the GPU score to isolate the GPU performance rather than the combined score.
The XFX R9 Fury Pro TD hits 14247 in Firestrike the 1080P version of this legendary synthetic benchmark.
FireStrike Extreme is the 1440p test in the firestrike series and the XFX R9 Fury Pro TD scores a respectable 7033 well ahead of the 390x and well short of the more expensive 980Ti.
Firestrike Ultra is the 4K resolution test and the XFX R9 Fury Pro TD hit a good stride at 3581 and as you can see t the highest resolution the XFX R9 Fury Pro quickly closes the gap with the GTX 980Ti and it’s showing a performance level slightly above its price at this high-resolution.
