    There are more reason for card to throttle. even if you can keep it at 45°C, it still can throttle once power limit in vBIOS is reached.
    My HD7970 was throttling a lot in experiments with TDP as I lowered it to 175W.

    That means reviewers could have card(s) which needed more juice for given clock than allowed.
    And different kind of workloads put different load on GPU even if each shows same 100% utilization.
    (One of reasons why review sited show sometimes quite different power consumption.)

    But TDP throttling has simple solution, people just have to allow higher TDP limit and who cares if it eats 25/50W more.

    Get a load of this bench:

    Also, Look at the other videos that the uploader posted, Amazingly at same exact settings, The Fury X eats alot less vram then the Titan X, Some of his videos are almost the same vram usage, This is very interesting.

    Strange, the vram usage count on titan X is alot more then fury X, Could be how the hbm works.

    Hmmm, I can't wait for more updated drivers, I am looking foward for more juice coming out of this card and more voltage tweaks and overclockin', Can't wait for results in the future.

    I am looking foward to the dual r9 fury x coming out very soon, what? this 15th?

    Reason why the Titan X and the 980 Ti Oc stands out more is because of alot more overclocking potential headroom, whereas the r9 fury x can't overclock as much, If it had the same overclocking headroom, the r9 would win, on the overclocking part.

    No throttling here and I'm on air - in fact, I can boost them further than I do and they still don't throttle. I've yet to see them break 75c tbh.

    I think if the R9 overclocking potential opens up as much as the 970/980 series, I strongly believe, the r9 fury X would easily win.

    Hopefully Rivatuner fame: !Unwinder!, can unlock great hidden potential within this card.

    When driver fully matures + Unwinder magic = R9 Fury X FTW.

    Actually looking more into the dual R9 fury X version on a single pcb.

    Scaling on xfire on the fury X seems Absolutely fantastic.

    And damn! 41 Celcius underload on some games, WOW.

    Waiting to see the normal fury card with the traditional air fans, love to see the difference in temps.

    R9 Fury has close to zero OC potential but ok, maybe it will "open up".

    btw. that YT test is bs. Everyone knows 4th card in Sli barley scales 40%ish...

    That's a pretty big if, imo.

    Also, yes, Crossfire scaling is great, first hand experience here, when it works, it's great. Problem is... It doesn't work as much as it should, judging by the recent (last 6 months or so) comments. When I ran 7950 CFX (you can call that 380 CFX haha) back in the day, the support was pretty good. But apparently things have changed a bit since then, from what I read on this forum.

    I will have first hand experience pretty soon. I'll let you know. I am hoping for 1500Mhz with 2 classifieds.

    There is no overclocking potential in my opinion. Maxwell chips oc like crazy without touching the voltage. Voltage will rarely make the overclock much better, just gives some extra which usually is not worth it (heat, noise, power usage, really small gain). In Fury X's case I wouldn't touch voltage at all because VRM cooling is pretty weak.

    ROFL, I actually chucked the Blu-Ray on after seeing that.

    Great movie and the same way I feel about Crossfire (after numerous disappointing experiences with it).

    Are you seeing any throttling with 980ti sli?

    From the results I have seen with fury X in xfire mode, seems prettie good scaling.

    Really looking into the dual R9 fury X on single pcb, seems tasty.

    I haven't used ati cards since the 5XXX time, I had the dual on single pcb version of the 5XXX series and the 5970, in tri-fire mode, seems to scale prettie well, I know it did on FFxiv online, cards were very good for its time, only one problem with the dual 5XXX, vrm runs brutally hot, despite being water cooled.

    Also new drivers just got released today, hopefully we can see comparison differences between the ones we just saw on all of theses videos/benchmarks and the new drivers just got released today, love to see the differences.

    Yeah the dual fury card should be very interesting, and the water cooler which it will likely feature will make more sense and won't take as much space as 2xnormal fury would.

    Fury X vs 980ti multi-GPU performance:

    http://www.pcper.com/reviews/Graphi...-GTX-980-Ti-2-and-3-Way-Multi-GPU-Performance

    Winner? Fury X.

    So not all doom and gloom for FuryX for those seeking the ultimate multi-GPU setups. :banana:
