Guys over at HardwareBattle exclusively gave us the permission to repost their newest story.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X is the new flagship
There was debate if Fury is the correct codename for the upcoming flagship GPU, but according to the newest slides posted by HardwareBattle, it seems we finally know the truth. If those slides are legit, and I believe they are (HardwareBattle are quite accurate when it comes to GPU leaks), then it’s confirmed that this tiny Radeon card that were were seeing for the past 2 week is in fact Radeon R9 Fury X.
Here’s the description of the new flagship card, taken supposedly from official presentation:

Now a closer look at Fury X display connectors. AMD Fury X has 4 display outputs, three DisplayPorts and one HDMI. Notice there are no perforations on the bracket, which means there is no ‘hidden’ fan on the card, it’s all handled by the radiator and its own fan, which is mounted elsewhere.
