Great card, it's just the 4GB that puts me off.

Same but it has some pretty good memory management if you look at benchmarks that usually take more vram.

Anyone know whats regarded as the best fury? XFX, Sapphire Nitro, Gigabyte or Asus Strix?

Ahhh fiddlesticks no dvi output. nice price though

I wouldn't listen to Reddit ever in PC stuff half the rubbish rumours these day are born on Reddit.

The Sapphire OC one is best out the box, but the differences are meh and it comes down to price.

This card is no where near powerfull to need over 4gb and still be able to run at 60fps.

Are people aware you can unlock the fury to either full fury x or 3840 cores.

Okay but a RX 480 8GB has some decent gains over the 4GB version so what you just said is false lmao.

Not much slower though is it?
Anyway the Fury X beat the 1070 by 25 fps in Vulkan Doom.
That's quite a large margin which would probably place this card on par. So future APIs will make better use of the untapped power in the fury and fury x

​Quite a bit slower, like 13% The rx480 is also bottlenecked by memory bandwidth so it makes quite a difference to overall performance.

Fury will run out of memory on a handful of games on ultra settings. You'll need to go down to very high or high textures in those circumstances.

You guys decide if that is an issue... Overall the Fury sits nicely between the 1070 and the 1060 in price and performance. Nothing really competes for just under 300 quid. If you have 70 quid more then get the 1070.

​Not all cards can be unlocked. My XFX fury being one of them

Reviews seem to suggest it commonly suffers from coil whine. Something to note if you're sensitive to noise.

Can AMD just release Vega already? The wait is painful. So tempted to buy this but I know there's always something better around the corner. Probably the worst time to buy a GPU as there are many DirectX12 games coming out but nobody has figured out how to make best use of the API. Some games favour AMD some NVIDIA or rather it matches AMD performance. GTX 1070 prices are coming down and it's perfect for DX11 but DX12, not sure. Decisions decisions......

Taken from: hardwareluxx.de/ind…=25
The benchmarks are clear: the increase in memory bandwidth by 15% affects in a performance gain 7-11 % . This is quite remarkable , especially when you make yourself fully aware that the card would move ahead of some competitors . However, the alternatives in the design of the Radeon RX 480 are difficult.

So stock core clock w/ 15% memory overclock gave 7-11% performance increase.

As to the reason for the 1070 not being memory bottle necked, where to start... Significantly better memory compression and completely different architecture/memory controllers would be my first answer

We don't need to guess. We can see the numbers. We saw it last generation, as well - how do you think the 960 almost kept up with the 380 despite a 128-bit memory interface?

GTX 1070 beats Fury X at 1080P Ultra in Vulkan, and is just behind at 1440P Ultra - although still beating the Fury. (As the Fury at nearly 300W uses roughly double the wattage of the 1070, that's about half the performance per watt.)

And this seems to be the absolute best possible benchmark for the Fury. Other results are mixed at best - there are even situations where a 750 Ti outperforms a Fury.

Finally, it's worth noting that the Fury is not exactly an "overclocker's dream".

Not sure about a 750ti beating a fury. I had come from a highly overclocked 970 1550 on boost and my fury beats it hands down in fact it beats a gtx 980. Mine has been unlock to 3800 cores. So much hate for AMD all the time right now a 1070 is way out of my price range and the 1060 not good enough for my needs

​yeah because most people game on Linux right

I see no market for this card.

The 980ti is sitting at around £300 quid. The 1070 is around £350 and the 1060 is around £230.

The 1060 is slightly behind, while the 1070 and the 980ti are way ahead of the Fury card.

This price is good for the Fury, but it isn't good for the GFX market.

not to mention the 300W power this card takes.

You'll really struggle to get a 980 Ti second hand for £300 let alone new. Believe me I've tried on eBay for the past 3 months so you're talking nonsense. Cheapest 980 Ti non-reference start from £350. 1070's start at around £370 so your numbers are all off.

OMG this is the last reply I'm making to you as you're being deliberately obtuse.

That link you provide does not show any 980 Ti for £300 aside from ones from US sellers. If you buy those, you have to pay £60 on top import tax. Are you following?

The UK auctions showing 980 Ti's currently at prices under £300 HAVEN'T FINISHED. Do you know how eBay works? The prices on those will end at over £300 after bidding.

Secondly, the GTX 1070s aren't '350', the absolute cheapest one you can find is £359.99:

Lucky day? Used and New market drives each other.

The 980 tis have been hovering sub 300 on ebay and sub 320 new. Stating that 980tis are running at 'no less than £350' is just straight out lies.

Luck has nothing to do with it, it's knowledge and experience.
