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

Final Thoughts

The XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation shows what a company dedicated to gaming and it’s customers can do. Take a reference design and throw it out the window Award_Goldand produce the R9 Fury the way it should have been rolling off the factory floors at AMD. XFX took the R9 Fury and covered it with a full length cowling and 3 whisper quiet fans. They easily tamed the heat this beast produces and did so with XFX style. The cooling solution saw the GPU running at 53°C on average during heavy gaming sessions. Putting the XFX R9 Fury Pro TD on a benchmark designed to max out the core and running it at 100% heavily overclocked couldn’t get it above 72°C so XFX went above and beyond and developed an exceptional air cooler for the massive power housed in the Fiji Pro core.

It’s not to often someone at the lab sits there thinking this is massive overkill but the XFX R9 Fury Pro TD put us in that mindset quickly. At times the higher the resolution we fed it the better the card performed in comparison to the other cards above it. With HBM being such a fledgling technology with a 4096-bit bus it leaves us to wonder if this is going to be the memory of choice as gaming blasts into the 4K region and beyond.

Priced at a hefty $500 price tag you have to wonder if it’s worth it for such an expensive video card but we’ve been through it personally where we didn’t buy enough video card power and had to go to wallet city and spring for another video card shortly after purchasing one we thought would do the job. When you get into this massive a computing power range of video cards you are going to be covered for quite a few years and there’s always the option to add another one later on when the next generation cards come out. There’s always a company or private seller that jumps into the new technology and wants to recover part of what they spent on the new cards leaving choice pickings for us bargain hunters. Now you end up with a couple of R9 Furys sitting side by side your good for a few more years.

The XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation chucks out FPS so fast that you keep pushing the video quality settings up until you run out of settings to max  out. The XFX R9 Fury Pro Triple Dissipation gives you and the gaming power you want and a smile on your face to boot.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

  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.

  2. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked the
    -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is

    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thanks a lot!

  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.
