    Good luck on seeing an EVGA product reviewed on here after the Precision X fiasco.

    Fury X getting its butt slapped! But to be fair, it was only a reference card. AMD board partners should come up with something at least competitive to these 980Tis.

    I think things will be a lot more interesting with the air cooled version of the fury, it's priced closer to the 980 but performs probably closer to the ti.

    I'm deciding between this MSI Gaming version or the upcoming Asus Strix version where the clock speed on the memory is factory set at 7200.

    Money wise they are pretty much the same, but I'll have to wait a 1-3 weeks before I can get my hands on the Strix version where as the MSI version is available now.

    Is it worth the wait?

    its a lottery it may overclock better it may cool better but lets be honest even if it does it is not going to be huge as MSI is already cool and fast

    IMHO it all comes down to personal opinion about the manufacturers.

    Alright - Thanks guys.

    I don't really have any preference between the two.

    I have a EVGA atm.

    But my Motherboard is the MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming and I'm pretty happy with it, which is why I was considering the MSI version of the card.

    I'm just torn since its a lot of money and I just don't want to "waste it".

    And I'm just wondering how much a difference the 100 mhz in clock on the GPU and Ram actually will have.

    Great review as always.

    I'm really looking forward to that Zotac review.

    If you do not plan on overclocking yourself, you would hardly notice a difference between the two with each at stock clock speeds. I cant see them being majorly different in terms of FPS in games. Each game is different and each build is different.

    It all comes down to personal opinion and the price. I think the stix will cost more but the card isnt out yet so no real way of knowing.

    From the review:
    I am confused - in the end did you overvolt the GPU, or not?

    Don't know why no body remembers or mentions this, but Gigabyte has a history of releasing awesome overclockers as review samples, and then selling Rev1.1 or 2.0 to the public that can't overclock at all.

    Had first hand experience with this with my WF3 580s and WF3 7970s (two of each).

    Would recommend going with the MSI card.

    I thought the Board Partners can't modify the Fury X?

    This MSI is definitely on my list. Ahh Choices, choices

    I have this card and it is amazing !!

    No more multi-gpu for me.

    Does this have redesigned VRM?

    Hopefully the Lightning version is just around the corner...

    It looks so small and compact on the photos. Looking forward to Strix. And nice review, as usual.

    Its so tempting :) Pascal is still pretty far away (rumours do say Q1 2016 right? Or was it Q2?). I'll have to think about it a little bit longer.

    Will you get one eclap?

    What about 3DMark? OCd I got 24k graphics score if I remember correctly which is way lower than 980Ti OC. On the other hand it's a synthetic benchmark and irrelevant to some degree regarding gaming :)

    If you can sell both 970 for a decent price then I'd go for it and get 980Ti instead. Less power, heat and noise. And more consistent performance in all games.
