    There is Fury's little brother coming out next week. The Nano. No idea where it sits performance wise or cost wise. But rumour is 27th release date. Might be something to consider.

    Won't overclock as good
    Won't run as coold
    Won't be as stable

    An 8gb model will cost same as the 300 series.

    the 390 is just a rebadged 290, go for the fury.

    In such case, it is again unnecessary waiting. With 4GB I did not get stutter on 4K, and vram was never fully filled.
    It may happen in some rare case, with bad texture mod or something, but in such cases user severely degrades performance without gaining image quality.

    Read the OP maybe?

    @OP, if you really must have an AMD gpu, and it must be one of those two, go with the Fury. 390x is just a 2 year old (in October) 290x.

    If.

    I would much prefer an AMD GPU, I don't like nVidia due to past bad experiences.

    Go for Fury.
    Advantages:
    - GCN architecture -> more dx12 friendly.
    - HBM memory -> huge bandwidth compared to GDDR5
    - runs silent and cold -> event thought it's air cooled.
    - ability to unlock it

    Disadvantages:
    - low overclock capabilities.

    Seeing the above if you are not an OC maniac than it's clear.

    They rarely do, sadly. I'm thinking the same thing, most likely the Sapphire one. None OC would be fine, I guess. Anyone else got one? How is it?

    I love, not in a weird Ex Machina love.....my Sapphire Fury. Even when playing demanding games it is silent.

    It is also a beautiful card......

    Get the Fury.
    I can see you're running 7570 in CF.
    upgrading to a 390 will feel more like a side-grade to 8GB than going from 7570 cf to Fury.
    if you can afford the Fury go. but from everything I heard. 7950/290/390, if you already own one of these there is no point in upgrading/sidegrading. new tech feels nice, but wasting money feels worse.

    EDIT: well...I feel important!
    late to the party, OP already got the Fury Tri-X.

    I bought the 390X, but do wish I bought the Fury. The 390X is still a great card and winter is coming, so I got that covered.

    Yeah late :D but from 7570 xfire even 390 is easily an upgrade ;) Two of those barely match 7850. And 7950 is way slower then 290 or 390. And Fury beats all of these to the ground hard.

    The 7570 Xfire is an interim solution, better than a rather noisy 9600 GT...

    The r9 390 oc'd is almost equal to two hd 7950 at stock. An r9 fury pro is about 20-30% faster than the r9 390. Overclock an r9 390x enough and you might end up with a fury pro. :p
