    Hmm Makes me wonder why AMD only stuck with 2 partners with the non fury X cards? To me this is kind of weird.

    It wasn't AMD's call. It is the board partners that made the decision to make them or not.

    Not to be rude, but isn't that a sign that something has gone terribly wrong?

    The Fury will probably be the "value" card that people are looking for (until the Nano comes out), at least compared to the overpriced Fury X. The Fury has -50mhz on the core clock and missing some shader processers, but besides that it's the same as the Fury X (at least from what I saw). And -$100. If it's within 2-3FPS of the Fury X, then it should act like AMD's 980TI, where it's basically the same performance for less money.


    If it's too much worse then the Fury X, or runs at 94c, then it will be another flub. Hopefully AMD get this one right.

    Dunno, but maybe it has something to do with the low yields of HBM? AMD's bringing out the Fury in a week or something, aren't they? Even though they're having yield problems with the Fury X being sold out because of HBM.

    Hilbert, do you know what the TDP of this card is? I'm kinda curious to know how much that WC on the X effects the leakage. I've heard estimates as high as 30w.

    275W (similar) as listed in the included specs image.

    The pictures at the bottom don't load for me =( -- I've been having a bunch of problems with the latest Win10 build & Chrome.

    Anyway I find it interesting that the WCing on the Fury X effected the TDP so much.

    Seems like an oc 980 can catch this card. Wonder how a 980 at 1500 would fare with an oc fury?

    Yep, there is much confusion regarding the embargo's, Seems like AMD doesn't give a crap anymore. Anyway, our sample won't be in until Monday.

    Loads of reviews out, X is redundant now, this is the one to get get.

    They guys at Anadtech wrote that the cards are only to go on sale on the 14th but that the embargo is lifted today. Maybe that´s the reason this happened, somebody must have confused the dates...

    Yep just glanced at the review on Anandtech and seriously what the hell is going on here?

    The Fury is only like 2-4fps slower in games like BF4, Crysis 3, and FC4!???

    This makes no sense, the Fury X has 4096 stream processors, higher ROP's, Higher texture units, higher clock speed, basically higher everything (yes some are only slightly higher).

    The Fury X should on paper be at least 10fps more in almost every game but it simply isn't.

    Could this be driver related? API related? Will DX12 really make these cards shine?

    The ROPs are the same and most people believe that the Fury X is held back by the ROP count. This basically just reinforces that. Also it only has 13% more shaders.

    Just read the review of Anandtech and it seems AMD has a winner with this card. And the card from Sapphire seems amazing!

    It's pointless to talk about differences in absolute FPS. What is the original framerate for the Fury X? Percentages make total sense.

    The Fury X won't be faster in 10FPS if the game in question is running at 20FPS on the Fury, for example... And no game in the benchmark runs the same as the other, so what's the point of absolute differences?

    Even makes the 390s redundant as well, as supposedly going to be around £400/£450 here in the UK, im thinking about cancelling my X order, and just grabbing a one of these instead, was only going for the X for the AIO cooler, and its cracking temps. :p

    not bad Amd, not bad at all. With this you may very well look like the bang for buck king once again in the high performance bracket.

    But alas, I'm still going full steam with my purchase of the Ti Hof
