Great price, cold voters must be Nvidia fanboys.
Agreed great price, cold voters must be those who don't get free shipping!

How does this compare with a 980ti?

To answer my own question, not too badly. It also runs fairly quiet.

Good price but I must not be tempted by a new graphics card until Pascal and Polaris are released.

Very nice

A bit slower than the Ti version however that retails £100-150 more so at this price this is comparable to a standard 980 and this tend to a be a bit faster or tie in most tests.

No cold voters are likely to be those who splashed over £300 on a graphics card, only to see the price slashed by at least a third less than 1 year later. Not voted either way. If money is no object yeah I'm sure it's a 'great price' but this is silly money for any graphics card - as are the eye-watering prices for even more extreme models - for which no game even exists that will even need that level of processing power.
What's with all these super powerful cards getting discounts, all I want is a cheap 960 or 970 to tide me over until the new cards. Let me play Dark Souls 3 please

You must be joking right?
Some of the new games can't get a solid 60fps at 1080p ultra let alone 1440p and 4K.
Plus people want 144fps to go with there 144hz monitor.

I don't know if they hold their value any more than the last time I wasted £300+ on a graphics card - but that will be the very LAST time I waste over £300 on a graphics card. Except if I find a suitcase of used notes of course.

Well that's tech and I understand your point about not holding it value but nothing does except rare expensive cars and houses.
Look at 4K tv for example was £20,000 for a cheap set less than 3 years ago without streaming and now they can be bought for under £400 with new better features.
Even apple products can be bought half price after a year or 2.
Try playing rise of the tomb raider with a crap card and see if u can hold even 20 fps at 1080p on ultra.
Even the 970 can't hold 60fps on new games at 1080p and even the not so mighty Titian X can't do it

Lets be honest whats crap is a game thats written/designed in a way that it can only be played to not even its full potencial by a 500 quid graphics card. Thats twice the price of a ps4 and not cut the mustard in 3 years. Lets think how often and where the money goes!
Based on the FuryX PCB if anyone is thinking of water cooling - easy to find a block.
For this price I'll just take a hit on graphics and buy a console. Can't justify PC component prices especially with the depreciation.
Except all the people I know who buy these high end cards sell their old ones back at the same time. Given how long it takes for the previous kings of the crop to drop in price, they do pretty well out of it. But, like anything, ymmv.

How did you waste your money? Did your graphics card suddenly explode and stop working when a new card (or price reduction) came out.

I didn't say the games weren't optimised as that's clearly the case but people support nvidia and game works and that's what is breaking games.
Non game work titles play fine.
Also this is a great price for this card although I wouldn't buy a card now as new ones are dropping.

Implying a console could perform anywhere close to this gpu.

Also, if you buy top end components they actually don't depreciate that much of you all then at the right time. I could 100% sell my 980ti now for a profit on the £450 I paid, also my 3 year old ASUS Maximus V Extreme still sells for around £200 on eBay!

​Wat. How has PC gaming good to the dogs? Hasn't Steam, etc revived it? A few years ago developers weren't even bothering with releasing PC Versions of games, but now it's pretty much only Sony exclusives they don't end up there...

Yeah then lose 10% to ebay in fee's and have someone use it for a while then sent it back as you have no rights as a seller on ebay.
Most people don't have this much money to splurge on pc componants, I agree if you get a good pc it is miles better than a console for graphics/resolution and the games are cheaper, but putting it all together as a total life cost its still more expensive. I paid £1200 for my pc 8 years ago which I recently sold for £100 because of depreciation. Thats £137.50 a year for 8 years, I could buy a new console every 2 years at current pricing, and then a console can be resold for a good chunk before the next gen comes in.

Unless you're doing rendering that makes use of graphics cards, games dev or image manipulation that needs it I hardly see the point of paying so much money on tech. If they held their value Lease computers would be a big thing, but the person paying for the pc would inevitably lose out.

It's kind of like 200mb broadband, you only get it to say you have it, 10mb sustained at peak times is all that's needed unless you're hosting.
good time for retailers to get rid of stock, otherwise......uh oh....

good card though, would rather get a Nano as it sips less juice, and isn't much slower.

A lot of games on the console are played at 720p and 30fps, even a second hand, £35 card can do that.

TBH, as always I would still wait,... what 2 months? or so

Looks like AMD are about to bring back some of that market share. Vid cards are much more relevant now, as VR looks to be the next big thing in the techworld

Console sold at a good chunk? Really? Don't CEX pay like £25 for an xbox 360? I've got two chucked in a cupboard because it's not worth selling them after courier fees etc.

And you took a massive loss on your PC because it's 8 years old lol. At that old it's pre sandy bridge, which rendered everything before it obsolete.

My rig is based around z77/sandy bridge (2011) and I could easily sell it all now and make £900! 2011 is when you should have cashed in on your PC for sure...

As I said, the key is to know when the best time is to sell.

3D TVs and VR are so utterly different. Daft even comparing them...



How, is it 'daft'? Not that I expect an informed debate with someone on HUKD who believes their own opinions and nothing else. 3D and VR were/are touted as the next big thing, both have an incredibly high-cost to entry, require additional hardware, complex configuration - I cannot believe the average household is going to spend the money to accept VR as it currently is. Even the original Oculus Rift (that was considered groundbreaking) has barely made waves beyond the concept and development - it has some uptake but is considered niche. I've not seen anyone using a Gear VR, etc. other than in showing it off as part of a tech demo. We'll see, and if it takes off, then great because it'll become more reasonably affordable as well.

Which makes it an even better deal. I still think it's too close to the release of new cards to cave in.

I'm not interested in 4k stuff yet - I just want 1080p, 60 fps with all the eye candy. My 970 will keep me happy for now.

might as well wait for the price to drop before its worth buying.

Hey man haven't you heard? VR has launched, which IS pushing the boundaries of current high end cards.
Really good deal if someone looking for over 1080p gaming. If I haven't got two r9 390 I would get two of those.
Heated added OP .

I owned a Fury Tri-X for a while and thought it was a stonking card. The XFX cooler looks near identical if shroud and fans are disregarded, I reckon the heatsink is the same. The difference in GPU temps that I got on air with a little fan profile modding was night and day between my Vapor-X 290X. The Fury Tri-X maintained 55C on GPU easily and very quietly, I never saw temps like that on my Vapor-X 290X (~75C 1100/1525 OC).

I was able to unlock 4 of the 8 disabled CU = 3840SP, due to having 3 Fiji cards at the time to test I only had time to run 3DM FS compare, genuine Fury X on left and Fury 3840SP on right, both at same 1090MHz GPU, I didn't OC the RAM at that time.

Currently I have Fury X, here is a compare of it's daily use OC 1135/535 vs the Vapor-X 290X @ 1100/1525.

​one is a gimick, an image effect that tricks your eyes in a superficial manner. the other fools your subconscious into believing that the game you're playing is real. not similar at all...
