    So let me get this straight. No Dual Link DVI. No HDMI 2.0. And disappointing performance at the same price as a 980Ti (which overclocks like a beast).

    Welp, good game AMD. Supposedly their stock is already tumbling. They won't get a chance to recover from this most likely. Such a shame.

    disrespectful ?!! I laugh about AMD like many others ? No

    This is a very expensive card and many people expected more !
    I´m just a realist and not a dreamer.


    Ok , talk about one Benchmark, very informative.

    As i said not a bad card but way overpriced.
    Too each his own,.
    Im out, peace !:) :)

    No idea why they didn't increase the ROP count in line with the SP count.....Could have made all the difference.

    Anyhow so we wait now for 14/16mm and we just keep getting older.

    Price will soon go down I'm sure. If they want to sell any. If its $550, it could even become popular. AMD would live up to its value for money image, but probably wont make much money off it.

    AMD needs to drop the price by at least $100 to have any impact. Unless you just refuse to buy Nvidia for what ever reason nobody would ever buy this over the 980ti for the same price.

    No not really, especially if it entails benchmarks that H did not test

    I agree to an extent.

    If Hilbert did no tests what so ever and did not plan on doing tests, then okay. But that is not the case, and there may not be all the titles tested there are plenty of titles to show Fury X performance.

    I will be buying the fury x for my next build. Windows 10 and dx12 will be where this new technology shines imho.

    then in that case isnt the 980gtx a whole lote cheaper then what amd is asking? or i just look at wrong prices granted it does beat 980gtx but not by noticeable amount to warrant the higher price in my eyes

    So how would using a 144hz monitor work? DP to DVI-D converter?

    Mind loaning me your crystal ball I want tonight's powerball numbers.

    AMD was planing to price this card higher because of yields but the $650 980Ti shot that down.

    It would be interesting to know what the performance is like in Windows 10 with the latest leaked driver. Ultimately of course, come 29 July, what it will be like then.

    AMD have done a lot of optimising with DirectX 11 lately on the Windows 10 driver. I suspect the Windows 8.1 Fury driver didn't receive that same love. Tough time to release a driver with this in mind, when Windows 7 and 8.1 is being replaced by Windows 10 a month after its release.

    No discussion or argument regarding people sticking with Windows 7 and 8.1 after Windows 10 release. AMD and Nvidia are not in the business to encourage people to stick with deprecated OS's against Microsoft's wishes, especially since the upgrade is free. If you're using the latest hardware like Fury, and wanting to stick with Windows 7 or 8.1 after 29 July, quite frankly, you're an idiot!

    I'm not going to apologise for that statement ;).

    So basically, in short, come 29 July and Windows 10, with the release Windows 10 AMD driver, the gap between the Fury and the 980 Ti will likely close. The Nvidia driver already received the DirectX 11 love, so their gains will likely be less. I'm referring to the actual DirectX 11 overhead optimisations part of the driver here, which happens to be in the very latest leaked Windows 10 drivers, not for it being Windows 10 specifically.
