Given that the Fury X is well above the 980 it's intended competitior and only falls short of the the Ti, the unexpected competitor by around 5%.
Yeah that's the part people always leave out. Nvidia couldn't allow the Fury X to release against their current [at the time] consumer market flagship GTX 980. I feel bad for GTX 980 purchasers and I would be PO'd if I had purchased a GTX 970 or a 980 [non Ti].
The biggest difference between the Fury X and the 980 Ti is that the 980 Ti has a lot of overclocking overhead. Which adds stress, increase power usage and heat to the components[980 Ti] . Even then the jump in performance isn't no more than 6%-10% for a highly overclocked 980 Ti vs a mild OC'd Fury X.
