Thought I post this, hope that is okay with you guys.
The card is close to GTX 980Ti performance, which is okay. Was hoping it would beat it.
Interesting in seeing the new HBM

AMD Fury X Gaming Benchmarks vs GTX 980 Ti and Titan X – 01:19
— Digital Storm

http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-radeon-r9-fury-x-review.html

seems from most reviews its a bit behind 980Ti at 1080p and 1440p, but actually ahead at 4k….despite many peoples concerns over "only" 4gb of vram.

I am curious to see how the GPU market may or may not get shifted around with dx12 coming soon. From what I have seen so far AMD seems to gain move with the change than Nvidia...its may mix things up a bit on the performance front.

a HUGE disappointment!! What was supposed to be the Titan X killer wasn't even capable of keeping up with a 980Ti at lower resolutions yet it's priced the same …. Seems like this year is for upgrading my monitors to a high refresh rate monitors (or a curved ultra wide ones) instead of a GPU upgrade as I see little reason to spend ~$2k on new cards to upgrade from my 290Xs... 😕

I am withholding judgement for now - as the drivers are immature compared to mature drivers..which is never fair (and its all 'launch day' reviews…which are always rushed). In a couple weeks we shall see what we see. 🙂

Is it the Titan X killer some were saying. No.  But....honestly with some driver tweaking and a price cut the Fury could indeed be a VERY tempting choice for consumers in the upper end of the market, and be a great value option....something sorely lacking right now!

Don't get me started about AMD drivers…they've been immature for the best few years...

I thought the Fury X was priced at $650Cad not $800 plus.

If they improve on the drivers I think this card would give the 980Ti a run for its money.
I know it did not beat the 980Ti, but its not that far behind it.

$650 USD. Same as gtx 980 ti. They are both around $850 CAD.

With all the hardware achievments AMD made with Fury X it is really a shame, that the speed is not consistently over Titan X. 4096 shaders, 4096 bit wide memory bus? HMB rams, all for nothing?

Hopefully the problem is just in the drivers and it get fixed in time. There are some promising reviews with more recent drives, where the speed gap between Fury X and Titan X is around the error margin - except, of course, games that are crippled on AMD thx to GameWorks nVidia secret weapon. Such games should be removed from the testing list, IMHO.

Or compare BF4 on Mantle on AMD vs BF4 on DX on nVidia…!
