Overclocking - Let's See How Far We Can Go


We had absolutely no time to overclock our Fury X, so we're going to concentrate on this in a follow up article.



Power Consumption


One of the interesting parts of the new Radeon R9 Fury X is its power consumption, which is something we were interested in seeing from the get-go. We were impressed with the results, which you can see below.





With our entire system consuming 375W, this puts the R9 Fury X at 15W more power consumption than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti.



Sound Testing


We were running right down to the wire to deliver this review, and didn't have enough time for proper audio testing. We will talk about this in a future article, but from our benchmarking sessions, we didn't notice the card and its massive radiator and cooling making any additional noise - which is great.


AMD rates the Radeon R9 Fury X at 32dBa, making it one of the quietest flagship video cards on the market.
