    What version are you looking at getting?

    I've been leaning towards the G1 version as EK is going to release a waterblock for it but I've also heard discouraging things towards OC'ing consumer versions of Gigabyte cards.

    What do you think?

    Hahah I feel you.

    I have no idea why they're still letting that Jason Evangelho write reviews. I believe he was the one posting how the 290x trashed the 780Ti like there was no tomorrow, while the reality was different.

    Not that I trust Forbes' reviews too much. It's not a tech magazine.

    Can second this.

    From what I've read, the driver is smart enough to treat that slow segment as a cache as opposed to proper VRAM. Thus, the problem is pretty much non-existant.

    So basically Fury X is acting like many of us on this forum predicted. 4GB is not always enough.
    AMD fanboys dodged this saying that 4GB HBM = 6GB GDDR5. Some went as far as saying that it's equivalent to 8GB GDDR5.
    I am not surprised.

    Hah! And I thought I was the only one entertained by his posts :D.

    But on topic: I think its still a good card, would be a good idea to price it more competitively.

    I agree. If this card was 550$ it would be a no-brainer considering that's where the 980 is sitting at.

    I don't know tbh, I always opted for reference SLi in the past shooting hot air at the back of the case. I always chickened out on non reference due to the video card spacing on the mb. I'd like to find somebody with non reference 980ti sli to see if the top card is going to cook.

    In that forbes review the 980 ti is clearly faster in most games? Just like in g3d review and loses some (like two) but in general reference 980 ti bit faster. It is odd tho 780 ti/970 losing in most games now to 290x in the more recent reviews (not looking at the old reviews that is) like the 390x review.

    Yeah i agree totaly, at 550$ against the 980 it would be tempting indeed.

    I would go with the G1 myself, but i'm a little bit biased, because i like the astethics better. But you can't really go bad either way.

    Congratz on your 2 980 Tis man! Looks nice! :)

    While I agree that this review of his is not very questionable, I've seen his other reviews in the past and they're utter bollocks.
    Even so, look closely at that review. Namely at the titles he chose to benchmark. Seems to me as he chose specific titles that don't show the Fury at its worst.

    You can call me a conspiracy theorist if you wish, but I would not be surprised by anything coming from that guy.

    Not only that, many of his benchmarks make no sense at all. Look at this:
    http://blogs-images.forbes.com/jasonevangelho/files/2015/04/1080p-1440p-Very-High-1940x1416.png
    GTX970 sitting at 107FPS avg for 1080p? Sorry, no. I finished GTA 5, and my framerate wasn't anywhere near that. It was averagely in the 70s. Admittedly I had tessellation on, but tessellation slices off just a few FPS.
    That image reads like fiction. How can I trust such a review?

    It won't cook that. Go for a reference 290x if you want heat. Though I suspect if you put an air cooler on the fury x, you eggs and bacon may burn.
