Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go
With SAPPHIRE's new Tri-X R9 Fury being based on the Fiji architecture, and thus using HBM, the RAM side of the card is completely locked down. No overclocking can be performed on the HBM whatsoever. The Core can be played with, but we weren't able to reach any conclusive overclocking in our short time with the card.
We did get to around 1090MHz, but the performance benefit was completely negligible. This could've been our sample, or it could've been the drivers that we're using. We will be taking a closer look at overclocking the R9 Fury in the near future.
Thanks to the use of HBM, the SAPPHIRE Tri-X R9 Fury consumes less power than the Hawaii-based and GDDR5-powered SAPPHIRE Tri-X R9 390X.
The SAPPHIRE Tri-X R9 Fury consumes around 385W, while the full Fury uses around 10W less, according to our testing. The Tri-X R9 390X from SAPPHIRE consumes 440W for comparison.
For our testing, we didn't hear a peep out of the SAPPHIRE Tri-X R9 Fury. This is a big turnaround from the Fury X where it has the annoyingly loud pump, which should be fixed before the next batch starts shipping to consumers.
