Radeon R9 Fury X will feature updated radiator, solves loud pump noise

After a week with the new AMD Radeon R9 Fury X, one of the things that has annoyed me was the very loud noise coming from the pump. It sounds like coil whine, and under heavy stress, the Fury X really begins to sound quite loud.

But it looks like a member of the AnandTech has noticed that AMD is shipping an updated version of the radiator with the latest batches of the Fury X. It looks like the first batch that mostly went to selected press and a handful floating out into the world is the only one effected, with the second batch and hopefully beyond including a radiator that isn't as noisy.

 

The unit that the news of the revised radiator was from SAPPHIRE, so we should expect other AIB partners to use the revised pump as soon as possible.

NVIDIA rumored to be working on the GeForce GTX 950 Ti

One of the best architectures that NVIDIA has ever released has been the Maxwell architecture, powering the GeForce GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980 Ti and Titan X, but now it looks like a new mid-range video card is on the way in the form of the GeForce GTX 950 Ti.

The new GeForce GTX 950 Ti will reportedly sport the "GM206-250" GPU, with it being a cut-down version of the GTX 960 GPU, the GM206-300". The GeForce GTX 950 Ti should have a price tag of around $149 when it launches, as the GeForce GTX 960 is currently priced at $199, while the GTX 950 Ti is priced at $149.

 

We should expect NVIDIA to unveil the GeForce GTX 950 Ti in the near future.

NVIDIA rumored to unveil new Maxwell-powered Quadro cards at SIGGRAPH

It looks like we can expect NVIDIA to unveil a few new professional-grade video cards in the coming months, with their latest drivers adding support for three new video cards.

These cards are the NVIDIA Quadro M5000, Quadro M4000 and Tesla M60. The Quadro M cards will most likely be unveiled at SIGGRAPH 2015 which kicks off on August 9, with both the M5000 and M4000 cards based on the GM204GL graphics processor. This will see NVIDIA shift from the Kepler-based GPUs to Maxwell-based GPUs, which should see a drastic drop in temperatures and power consumption.

#GuysCuddlingWithVideoCards, start cuddling your video cards

Forbes' Jason Evangelho has kicked one of the most awesome things I've ever seen for video cards, where he started off by posting a picture of himself on his Facebook cuddled up to the HBM-powered AMD Radeon R9 Fury X.

AMD's Roy Taylor kicked in posting his own photo, and then offering $2 to the charity of Jason's choice for every picture, up until $500 is raised for the hashtag #guyscuddlingwithvideocards. Well, I have countless video cards here in my office, so I covered my daughter from head to toe in video cards and snapped the above photo! Great fun!

AMD Radeon R9 Fury X works in 4-way CrossFire, and 8-way under Linux

A few days ago we were in Sydney, Australia for the AMD unveiling event for the new Radeon 300 series and the new Radeon R9 Fury X. During a Q&A session with AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist, Richard Huddy, we asked if the Radeon R9 Fury X could be used in 4-way CrossFire configurations.

 

 

Huddy replied saying that you can indeed use the Radeon R9 Fury X in 4-way CrossFire setups, but that the team has already played with 8-way setups under Linux. But, I also asked if it was a problem with the massive radiator that is attached to each Fury X, and that a 4-way CrossFire configuration would be quite hectic, even inside the biggest chassis.

 

AMD didn't seem to clearly answer the question, but noted that Fury X in 4-way CrossFire has been done before. We have secured ourselves a second Fury X for some CrossFire lovin', so expect some Fury X CrossFire scores in the coming days.
