[Help&Purchase] R9 Fury / Sapphire R9 Fury Tri-X OC, doubt

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I'm new here and I'm in a little pain and need your help on this OC version of R9 fury sapphire.

I've already past my command on this site (In french/german)

(I know I should have bought it here but buying on a swiss site allows me to pay by bill, because I have the money in cash)

But I haven't paid the bill yet (I may still cancel, but don't want to wait more) and I've noticed the image of the box, and the descriptions doesn't really suggest that they are selling the OC version. Their support's answer didn't really reassure me, they literally said that they aren't sure and that they can only see one version of the graphic card on Sapphire's official site...
The price and the title are suggesting me that I'm buying the OC version but hey conrad.ch doesn't even know what they are selling, and I'd be kind of pissed off I receive the product and later constate that I've paid much more for the standard/not OC version. (resend them the product etc, taking more weeks).

So is there any way to verify that I've bought the OC version? Once I receive them, how do know it's the OC version other than the "overclock" icon on the box (that I might have not) ?
Is there any special note on the GPU?

I could check it with AMD OverDrive, but they might not accept the product if it's been opened/used. But I don't know.. my old/actuel GPU is Asus Radeon 6870 and I've never been really interesting into overclocking.

I thought I'd buy a good graphic card now and then later when the prices drop in a few years buy another one to put in CrossFire (as the scalling is good?), when I'd be into 4k, big, a lot of screens things.

It's annoying there's a lot of version of a card. Hard choices..
How does it work between the manufacturer and the retailer? Because I've been told by another swiss site that they aren't able to take contact with Sapphire to command the "Backplate" Version of the R9 390(X or not) ,, eventhough they are official retailer. It pissed me really and made to direct into this R9 Fury Tri-X OC version.

From what I've read, the new Fury cards can't be much OC'd, so I thought buying an OC'd version would be a good idea.
Was it? Put extra money for OC version, worth? This HBM thing tempted me, is it really worth giving a try instead of a GTX 980/ti(god they are expensive) ? I couldn't wait much more with my 6870, it's doing fine, not this ugly in game but it's becoming old and I don't want min/medium settings anymore.


I need your "expert/experienced" thoughts, advices.


Thank you

Have no fears, Fury beats Hawaii any day of the week.
As I understand, you are worried whether it will perform just as well as its cool operation; if so, Fury is in a class of its own:
  1. 85 watts less(445>380),
  2. 10 dB less(52>42),
  3. 25% higher minimum fps where bandwidth counts(30>37).

I think you made a good choice with the regular Fury. It probably has the best performance to price of 980, Nano, Fury X and 980ti.
