For the record, AMD hasn't unlocked the voltage. Neither have board partners.

true but they found a way to at-least increase it.

For those who already took the Fury(x) plunge and now own one it may help.

But as said 2 posts back if your still on the fence id probably sit this gen out.

One of the main things to remember here is currently the 980TI in the same(similar) price range is too good to not chose it over the fury-x considering the easy oc headroom also its just a better card overall.

perhaps AMD can leverage some more performance from drivers for those who already own one , maybe like the 290x it will pull ahead later on but currently its not a safe bet at all.

I wont be selling any of my customers a fury/x unless they demand it tbh.

And i can be quite a AMD fan in my own right lol.

They're in stock pretty much everywhere on and off. NCIX even had a sale on the Gigabyte card this week.

Sapphire Radeon R9 FURY X 4GB HBM PCI-E HDMI / TRIPLE DP - Newegg.ca
PowerColor Radeon R9 Fury X AX R9 FURY X 4GBHBM-DH 4GB 4096-bit HBM PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card - Newegg.ca
XFX R9-FURY-4QFA RADEON R9 FURY X 4GB HBM Liquid Cooled 4096-Bit PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card - Newegg.ca

From what I hear from my retailer contacts, interest for this card has been very, very low.

Well you ordered when it was $699 at Amazon... I'm not surprised they haven't gotten more stock in to fulfill your order. I don't think they ever will, unless the CAD recovers

I'm curious, has the performance improved at all on these cards? If not, then I don't understand why they are still priced at 980 Ti levels.
