Successor to the R9 Fury X Tri-X with new custom PCB

According to a fresh report, Sapphire is working on a new Radeon R9 Fury graphics card with a completely custom design, featuring new custom PCB and a triple-fan cooler, the Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Nitro.

Pictured and detailed by, the new custom Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Nitro will replace the currently available Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Tri-X model and will feature a new and longer custom PCB with high-quality components. The new Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro will retain the backplate but also feature an additional DVI display output on the back. 

The new Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Nitro will also feature a slightly higher clocks compared to the R9 Fury Tri-X model and will end up clocked at 1050MHz for the GPU. It also comes with 4GB of High Bandwidth Memory clocked at standard 500MHz and paired up with a 4096-bit memory interface. It is still not clear which changes did Sapphire implement on the new custom PCB as it still needs two 8-pin PCI-Express power connectors but we suspect that Sapphire has included additional phases for the VRM as well as higher-quality components, which should allow for a higher overclocking potential. 

The new custom Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury Nitro is expected to be available sometime in January next year. It appears that AMD has given a green light to its AIB partners for custom Radeon R9 Fury designs so we suspect other partners will have similar graphics cards ready in January.
