Gigabyte announces Radeon R9 Fury WindForce video card

The Taiwanese Gigabyte has released what seems to be the first air-cooled Radeon R9 Fury graphics card. The new Gigabyte product has two goals – to lower the price of the Radeon R9 Fury and to appeal to people who do not want to use liquid cooling solutions in their expensive rigs.

The new card gets cooled by a triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution that looks a lot like the one seen on Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti video cards. The card has a full-length custom-design PCB by Gigabyte, which means it does not use AMD’s short reference-design board. The card also has standard height and the cooler has a thicker heat sink, which makes the air-cooled R9 Fury a triple-slot solution. A back plate is also present in the package.

Gigabyte has touched the tech specs of the new video card – it comes with a slight factory overclock of 1010 MHz for the core (the reference R9 Fury runs at 1000 MHz) but the memory clock has not been played with so it runs at 500 MHz. The card gets its power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors and in the back it offers one dual-link DVI port, one HDMI 1.4a connector and three DisplayPort 1.2a connectors.

No word on pricing or availability but the new air-cooled Gigabyte Radeon R9 Fury should sell for around USD 550.
