The Radeon R9 Fury X - part 1

You can see the Radeon R9 Fury X in Figure 12. The main visible feature of the card is its sealed liquid cooling system, mounted and installed; you just need to install the card in a PCI Express 3.0 x16 slow and attach the 120 mm radiator to the case. The card uses two eight-pin power connectors.

The card is 195 mm long, uses two slots, and weighs 880 g without the radiator (1,509 g with the radiator). The Radeon logo lights up when the card is powered up.
