Fury X is now just as fast as GTX 980Ti in 1080p/1440p and faster in 4K

post #1 of 165
Thread Starter 
Nobody have made an article about it and it seems to have gone unnoticed so I think this one needs to be posted since it shakes up things in the GPU world. I hope the moderators let the thread stay since I post link to the test itself.

Ever since Fury X launched, it have been heavily discussed as a worse deal than GTX 980 Ti because it wasnt as fast in the sub 4K resolutions. But just recently TechPowerUp did a review of the GTX 980Ti Lightning where they used the newest video drivers from both AMD and Nvidia.
And it turns out it have completely shifted the edge GTX 980Ti had over the Fury X and surprisingly Fury X even takes the lead in 4K now.


First Fury X review by TPU:
AMD: Catalyst 15.5 Beta
NVIDIA: 353.06 WHQL

This GTX 980Ti review by TPU:
NVIDIA: 358.50 WHQL
AMD: Catalyst 15.9.1 Beta



1440P Before.
GTX 980Ti was 10% ahead



1440P Now
GTX 980Ti and Fury X are now equal



4K Before
GTX 980Ti are 2% ahead



4K Now
Fury X are now 4% ahead



Source: Newest review from TPU



In addition, you can get the cheapest GTX 980Ti today for $619 while Fury X price have been reduced to $629 but you with rebates it comes out as the cheapest for only $599!

PNY GTX 980Ti $619 @ Newegg

I have to give it to AMD:
What an amazing comeback and for those that doesnt need the extra overclock headroom GTX 980Ti currently have, Fury X is a better buy with an AIO cooler.

In addition, we know that the Omega drivers from AMD are right around the corner and who knows if it further boost the Fury X performance plus maybe bring new overclocking capabilities to the card...
Well done AMD thumb.gifcheers.gif

But you must know, the overclocker's dream is still an overclocker's dream tongue.gif

Stupid Nvidia... purposefully holding back the vanilla 980ti to make people want to buy the 980ti Lightning edition!!! mad.gif

They're taking this gimping thing to a whole new level now wink.gif

Excellent. It's a shame that when it came time for me to buy my GPU, the Fury X was:

out of stock

had pump issues out the wazoo

was slower than the 980Ti

was more expensive.

This kind of drives the point home that AMD makes good hardware, but they really.... really..... REALLY... REALLY need to get their drivers in check out of the gate. Had the Fury X been equal / faster than the 980Ti at the start, perhaps there would be fewer 980Tis out in the wild, and more Fury X's.

I hope the message gets out and the thread doesnt die out since the moderators moved it to the graphic card section. Shame that no other site have picked up on it.

You are aware that GTX 980Ti Lightning is an overclocked GTX 980Ti that is expensive as hell right? Thats why it is faster tongue.gif

Yes, the Fury X launch was not ideal, thats for sure. But man have AMD recovered. Availability on the market and yields are now ideal. Drivers are better than Nvidia. Rumors about Omega drivers lurking around in the corner bringing who knows what to the Fury X card. I hope they unlocked voltage and improved overclocking. Any additional performance gains will for sure make the Fury X card a no brainer vs GTX 980Ti.
To me Fury X is already a better buy right now though.

Also, I doubt TPU are themselves aware of it since there is not mention about the improvements on the card since original testing.

And look at all the other cards! All the AMD cards that used to be considered slightly under NV are now a bit above them!

Both companies drivers are total garbage right now. Nvidia dishes out garbage, AMD dishes out hot garbage. It's all garbage.

Latest Nvidia driver broke a clean install of 7 for me. (something crashes on start up)
Old ones work.
