Great review. I am just a bit dissappointed that it was beat by a hair by the GTX 980 TI on most benches. But I was surprised how it performed at 4k. All and all. I looks like a good win for AMD to finally get out of the trenches and charge forward. Hope when the drivers are matured that it will see more performance gains!!!!!

I read fast :)

I'm LOVING the price point.

I'm VERY concerned about the 1440p performance. How the hell does this thing shine at 4k against a TITAN, and fail against a 980 at 1440? Is this drivers, or architecture?

This card feels like a Bleeding edge 1st generation not-quite-there-yet test. I have a feeling the follow-up revision (490x? Fury 2 X?) will have a LOT more balls as AMD learns more about HBM and their architecture. Which leads me to my next point: As a guy who games currently at 1440p, and wants to upgrade from a 970 to this or a 980ti...What do I do? I'll say, this card has me debating holding off for some driver updates, or remake, or price drop of the 980ti, or...

Sigh. This didnt make my choices any easier. Stupid AMD.

Any plans on running compute benchmarks on the Fury X? Would appreciate a follow-up when retail samples begin shipping to see how much the new pump bearing design affects noise levels.

I would love to get this card. If I was single and had no major bills like a house mortgage and car payment. etc. I would have 2 of these just for the fun of it. lol. But I am happy to see AMD competing again. Hope next year that we will see HBM on all the upper half of their cards!!!
