As an update to last week's article and for those not following me on Twitter, the R9 Fury graphics card is running right now on Linux. The long-awaited AMD Fiji Linux test results are now imminent.

The AMD Radeon R9 Fury air-cooled graphics card arrived after finally finding one in stock and buying it, since AMD wasn't interested in providing a review sample for Linux testing.

It's the Sapphire Radeon R9 Fury 11247-00-40G graphics card, which now can be found at in stock for $549 USD.

So far in the Linux testing with the Catalyst driver there's been no crashes. For the OpenGL/OpenCL performance results, you'll need to wait until tomorrow when the first R9 Fury Linux benchmark results will be published here on Phoronix. No teaser data to share yet since all of the benchmarks are still processing via the Phoronix Test Suite.
