Sapphire Intros Radeon R9 Fury NITRO Graphics Card

Sapphire launched its second premium Radeon R9 Fury graphics card, the R9 Fury Nitro. The card replaces the R9 Fury Tri-X as the company's best R9 Fury offering. While the R9 Fury Tri-X features a long cooling solution that's of standard height, the Nitro features a cooling solution that's of greater height (12.5 cm).

The cooler features a dense, split aluminium fin-stack heatsink, and three spinners. Under the hood is a custom-design PCB by sapphire, which is slightly longer and taller than AMD's reference "Fiji" PCB, but doesn't cover the entire length of the card. This PCB is said to be 8-layer, compared to the 6-layer PCB on the reference-design "Fiji" board. On offer, is a factory overclock of 1050 MHz core, and an untouched 500 MHz (512 GB/s) HBM memory. Another characteristic feature is its display I/O, which includes a DVI connector, in addition to three DisplayPorts 1.2a and an HDMI.

The Nitro is actually a little longer than the Tri-X (307mm compared to the 300mm of the Tri-X).

Is it a custom PCB? It looks longer than the reference design. Looking at it I don't see the AMD logo. I wonder if it's beefed up or cut back for lower cost?

I want a custom beefier pcb + epic air cooling+unlocking (getting more stuff than what you paid for feels good) which is fun!

So then, I guess this is their top tier product for the lineup. Not bad...

Actually Nitro is sapphire no-frills high end. It is for those that don't want lights on a graphic card and just want a clean look. Their highest end should be the Tri-X.
