630mhz OC on the memory, 645GB/s.

The review fails to show this card versus a stock Fury which was the only comparison I truly wanted.

pretty nice I guess, tough for the price it's asking, it's more expensive than some of 980Ti at local stores in my town.

Plus I'm pretty sure a highly OCd 980 would still win, be cheaper as well.

Here's close to what you want. The Nitro has a 10 Mhz faster core clock than the Tri-X did. So the results will be very close.

No temperature data of any kind, Really? So it doesn't OC that well and we have no idea of the actual coolers performance. Meh review

dunno man, could be price gouging due to HBM, import fee or else confusedsmiley.png

although those Ti that are cheaper are considered 'budget ones' while this Nitro is somewhat premium class.

If you actually read the review and parse data with the GTX 980 Classified review you will find that they have the same performance with the classy clocked at 1600 Mhz.


Firestrike Extreme
Fury: 7862
Classy: 7244

Firestrike Performance
Fury: 19413
Classy: 21285

Crysis 2
1600p
Fury: 73.2 fps
Classy: 72.5 fps

1080p
Fury: 94.6 fps
Classy: 91.4 fps

Tried to find comparable numbers from TPU but they seem to run BF3 at 1080p with the GTX 980s and 1440p with the Furys for their OC tests. If we apply the 12.8% gains to the 1440p regular results in BF3 the results are about the same.

BF3
1080p
Fury: 150 fps (estimated +6.4%)
Matrix 1536 Mhz: 159 fps

1440p
Fury: 101.5 fps
Classy 1536 Mhz: 98.7 fps (estimated +12.6%)

Last time I checked the GTX 980 was 460€ for the cheapest in town and 480€ for the cheapest Fury so it really comes down to brand preference or what you're going to play. I also don't know if every single GTX 980 can hit 1500 Mhz.

Right now you can pick up a nitro fury OC for $489 at the same price as 980's here in the US.

Except for power consumption this is a winner. Nitro fury's beefed up circuitry, 8 layer PCB and TriX cooling has over all better performance gaming @ 1440 & 4K, cool temperatures, quiet acoustics and greater memory bandwidth than 980.

I have a nitro fury overclocked 150 MHz on the Core gaming stable @ 1150 MHz with +96 mV. Without any voltage at all can keep 1100 MHz on the core gaming stable.

Fiji is a cool chip, without fans this idles 33C. If you like you can turn on fans at 30% fan speed and it keeps idle at 26C-27C. TriX cooling is acoustically quieter then anything I've owned before on air which Includes ACX cooling.

Without overclocked memory, with added voltage for the Core OC I've seen 62C with the 62% fan speed after hours of gaming. Without any voltage added 58C 58% fan speed.

Soon I may toggle the BIOS switch and see what she does which allows for higher temps, higher OC but I'm not fond of higher temp. Naturally I benched this higher at 1175 MHz but I don't put weight into that. Gaming stable is what counts to me.

Over clocking HBM memory seems to be the down side as a 50 MHz OC raise temps about 5C gaming and 3C idle. It did provide 3-5 FPS but I've decided the gains were not as beneficial at the cost of higher temperatures. I don't consider it as important to OC memory when I already have this type of memory bandwidth anyway.

It was a shame air cooled Fury didn't come out at same time 980 launched. A lot of missed sales for AMD. King of the hill crown with Nvidia TI or above but under that there are now a couple better choices and finally priced competitively, one being with air cooled Fury over a 980 IMO. However Nvidia already saturated the market with no contest and will hype pascal for the next 6 months to keep perspective buyers to hold off.

None the less any cards at this performance / price range is nice for me moving forward. Also not sure why other AIB's like MSI Gaming didn't come out.
