2. There are very few scenarios where the 8GB vram on the 390 will come in handy before it runs out of GPU power, but ok.

3. You have no place to mount a 120mm AIO? I mean come on.

4. To your last point, since you waited 2 years already, why not just wait a bit longer for Vega? biggrin.gif

Man I hope Vega has AIO watercooler and same form factor as FuryX wheee.gif

Oh and that radeon logo and load lights biggrin.gif

What if these cards come out as the same price as the Rx480 initially costs. Leaked pricing seems to indicate these cards are coming in with the same initial MSRP as the rx 480/470. Is that cheap enough?

3. No but if you're upgrading from a 390 and insist on buying AMD, Fury X is the best you can do right now, and you'll have to make do with the AIO somehow. Or you could always get Fury without the AIO for a bit less performance.

Anyway, before this gets more heated I simply wanted to point out that Fury X was a viable upgrade for 390 owners. If the complaint is it didn't provide enough performance increase then ok sure, there's nothing better and you'd have to wait for Vega if you insist on buying AMD.

1) Yes because there's nothing on offer compelling enough and the 580 is just a sidegrade at best

3)Fury X didn't provide enough of a compelling and what nixed the deal was the AIO that required it. I'm not the sort to compromise performance for an air cooling card so the Fury was out too.

Fury X wasn't a viable enough upgrade performance wise when new and now and i'm sure many 390 owners will feel the same and are waiting for Vega this time around to see if their waiting was worth it. Same goes for the 580. The performance increase isn't compelling at all.

It'll say alot about Vega if it specifically needs an AIO to cool itself compared to a 1080Ti which can run fine on a custom air solution. rolleyes.gif They'd be making the same mistake as the Fury X if they don't make AIO an option and instead lock the top tier vega to an AIO only solution.

Costing same as Rx 480 is fail lol

I know how you feel. I recently bought an RX 480 Strix from newegg just to put in my backup PC. For 24 hours they dropped the price to $199 after rebate and it came with a code for Dawn of War III. This was the OC model Strix too with 8GB of ram as well.

Who cares about the 1080ti?

Not me, not anyone I know.

The only mistake they made with FuryX was pricing it that high.

It likely had to with that built-in AIO?

Fury was also overpriced and it did not have AIO. So no, I do not agree. They tried playing the Nvidia game and failed.

Fiji XT was a massive chip, plus HBM1 wasn't cheap at the time. Considering the material costs, I'd actually say Fury X was relatively cheap.
