    Hasn't Crossfire always scaled better? I had a 4780X2 and my problem wasn't with the scaling performance, it was the number of games it actually worked at all in. Most AAA titles were fine, but random other little games weren't.

    Also I think for the most part SLI/Crossfire are going to run into issues in future games where deferred rendering becomes further and further used. Going to require the dev/amd/nvidia to work far more closely at developing the implementation for multi-GPU setups.

    This is the problem with CF

    Sometimes more FPS than SLI but frametimes are absolute garbage, last time i tried it was 7970 and that was an eye sore judder fest

    Yeah, I won't consider xfire even if it's faster with those frametimes.

    That is what I was talking about earlier in the thread. But that aside it looks like the Fury is the better card anyways as it is right on the heals of the X with a cheaper price and just the slight overclocking it can do puts it past the X in every game and resolution.

    I would not be surprised if Nvidia dropped the 980 and 980Ti MSRP by another $50 just to make Fiji completely irrelevant.

    980 at $450
    980Ti at $600

    That would really be interesting.

    980 at $400, 970 $279 and the ti at $550 would literally kill off their sales i think

    Frametime variance was pretty bad on GTA V for Fury X CF, but did quite a bit better in BF4, Bioshock inf and Metro LL. So largely game dependent. Not enough games tested really to reach definitive conclusion.

    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:
