    I doubt we will see prices that low, but if we did it would be awesome.

    Not sure if they can do it. Prices that low for current products may constitute dumping, an illegal trade practice.

    I see no reason to a price reduction the GTX980Ti, but the GTX 980 is in an awkward situation right now with this new fury and a drop of $ 30-50 makes sense to me.

    They had to, to stay in the game. Bet you a lawyer can bring up a case vs Nvidia if they tried to do it with current products that are selling well. It would look more like an attempt to damage the competition than an actual need to do it. Of course I may be off the mark at those sort of prices, but anything less than that, I think Nvidia would face legal challenges of some sort.

    I'll likely buy Nvidia for my next gpu purchase, but I want AMD to stay competitive... If AMD wasn't there, Nvidia would essentially have a monopoly and charge insane prices.

    Go AMD!! :p

    We know what the single cards performance is. The CF scaling though seems to give FX a raw FPS edge over SLI. CF smoothness is not good with GTAV, but on par or better in the other games (at least in the PCPer review)

    Hardware.fr has CF vs SLI review using 13 games. No stuttering with SLI whatsoever, 3 problematic games with CF... just saying.
    http://www.hardware.fr/focus/111/crossfire-radeon-r9-fury-x-fiji-vs-gm200-round-2.html

    Every single AMD launch its the same story. "OMG look at that CF scaling"
    (in chosen few games)
    Few months down the road - ****storm! CF drama all over the internet, reviewers calling out AMD, no profiles for AAA games, negative scaling etc etc.

    That being said AMD has the edge with XDMA. Theoretical anyway. With proper support this could turn into a real advantage.

    Ah, OK. Thanks for the link. Seems they did the CF vs SLI comparison only in 4k.

    And to those of you waiting on a magical voltage unlock to increase performance, here's your good news :roll: :

    At this point it's just rubbing salt into the wound...almost. Got to love that AMD overclocking monster. :thumbup:
