AMD Radeon Fury Crossfire review: Here's what two fast, furious graphics cards can do

Jason Evangelho | July 15, 2015
In our review of AMD's Radeon R9 Fury, we discovered that the Fury X's air-cooled sibling packs a performance punch that justifies its competitive price tag. In fact, it punishes Nvidia's GTX 980 and proved to be the true champion of AMD's new Fiji lineup. Which begs the question: If one Radeon Fury performs this admirably, will two of them in CrossFire start a flame in our PC-gaming hearts and earn those coveted slots in our 4K gaming rigs?

On the plus side, AMD's FreeSync display technology now boasts support for CrossFire, making smooth 4K gaming even more approachable--if not quite affordable enough to be adopted widely.

Had this been written before AMD's Catalyst 15.7 driver, which finally brings CrossFire support to FreeSync monitors, the bottom line would be murky. With that new driver support, however, the conclusion is clear. A pair of Radeon Fury cards in your system flat-out rocks, provided you're willing to pay a few extra pennies to the utility company and exercise patience when high-profile games are released without multi-GPU support.
