Why is this news-worthy?
Oh, because it's AMD bashing and that's the in thing right now. Silly me.
People act like no other GPU has ever had coil whine before. Even Nvidia has suffered this problem as recently as their 980s. In fact, I have two friends who both RMAd their first 980s because the coil whine was that bad. One got back a noise-free card, and the other got one that is at "acceptable" levels.
The AMD hate train has gotten completely out of hand. I'm considering getting a Fury X just to spite all the Negative Nancys now.
When the evga 970 had a host of problems including coil whine it was in the news multiple times.
Please stop the amd bully victim complex, it's borderline pathetic.
