    If they don't lower the prices of these puppies , eventually AMD will fail with the release.

    OMW. Nobody commented on the DVI port. Looks like ASUS actually listened. Can't believe they actually did it. I hope they will get more sails on this card than any other card without DVI so we can show them it's not time to ditch it yet

    Maybe that's the reason why more manufacturers aren't planning a product based on this, as the the article suggested? There's no point if it's too expensive. A difficult situation for AMD.

    the Fury X is well over a grand here in NZ (1399.95NZD) so I can not see to many buyers who'll part with close to the same price for this just because it's a Strix version

    I must be missing something here, why is the card full size and not the smaller form factor of the Fury X? I thought the smaller size came from using HBM.

    The PCB is still short. It's the cooler that's full size. It's still ~275W part so it needs a full sized cooler.

    The PCB is small, the dissipation needs to be BIG

    There is no mention of prices for Fury 9. So how do we know its not competitive?

    "At this point it look like only Sapphire and ASUS are to release a Fiji Pro based Fury card, I've talked to Gigabyte and they are not planning this SKU. MSI as well will not release one short term, but internally they are still discussing it."

    This is not a good sign.. Gigabyte and MSI do not seem to have much faith in it.

    Sounds like the aib partners don't think it is going to sell. You don't here this with nvidia. Or the stock nay be limited.

    I got the limited stock feeling from it.
    Seems to me far more point from an AIB' point of view to run with Fury than say a 390X... but they all took 390X AFAIK right?
    (margins allowing ofc)

    First I was surprised about the DVI port but I had a feeling it was not a dual link DVI and.... i was right. If you look at the picture closely you'll notice that it's missing the horizontal flat pins. Asus simply went and added a hardwired adapter to the display port of the gpu, what this means is that it still cant run 120 hz or 1440p.

    It is DVI-DL. Those 'horizontal flat pins' have nothing to do with single vs DL but are analogue pins.

    No GPU manufacturer today releases even a mid-range card with DVI single link let along a high end card.

    At $550 Fury will have excellent demand. Lure of HBM + all that raw untapped power that might surface one day yadayada...

    But with -10% compared to Fury X this card will be firmly in range of OC/aftermarket 980's

    600mm2 GPU + HBM vs 400mm2 + GDDR5 is a terrible position for AMD to be in.
    Some of this will be eaten by AMDs margins, and some by AIBs.

    The only reason for AMD not to be terribly upset is low availability of Fiji.
    Combine that will lower margins, and its clear why AIBs are not particularly enthusiastic about Fury.

    5 years ago XFX got kicked by Nvidia for pulling similar stunt (skipping the first Fermi and "Ferm up to who really has the big Guns").

    At least we can expect a XFX Fiji Pro based Fury card :)

    My understanding is that the PCBs for the Fury Pros will still be reference. The OEMs just customize the cooler.

    Wonder if these are essentially Fury X that have been binned.
