This shit is going on sale for €230 at my local store. Is it worth it?
>>
why it has a small psu attached? do radeons really draw that much power?
>>
>>59987474
Well it's a bit stronger than a 580 but the 4gb of ram could be an issue later down the line.
>>
>>59987511
I know it draws 250 fucking watts that's why I'm asking
>>
>>59987511
its a radiator, the card is water cooled.
>>
If you don't mind it drawing a lot of power then it's pretty good. Still the best AMD card in terms of performance.
>>
>>59987522
The hbm it has is really nice though, I've seen people running games that would take more than 4gb of VRAM perfectly fine
>>
WAIT FOR VEGA YOU NIGGER
>>
>over 8 TFLOPS of FP32
>512GB/s vRAM
Shiiiet for that price, it's a steal. Don't listen to all these faggots whinning about power consumption. It's not like you're gonna leave it on 24/7 running 4K res furmark for years.
>>
>>59987535
Psst that's nothing. An r9 390 draws 300 watts.

It's still AMD's fastest GPU in 2017 (apart from in situations that use more than 8GB)

Couldn't cram more than 150MHz in OC and the card does get hot even through it's watercooled. Plus I suggest you get a silent fan for the cooler, it will sound horrible.

>FurMark

AMD have started throttling the card when it detects FurMark now, just like Nvidia have been doing since it was causing Fermi cards to literally explode.
>>
>>59987535
you can undervolt it very decently..

i own a fury x, works exceptionally on wqhd and 4k. but perfect on FHD.

also consider iChill technology from AMD which lowers your temps

Can you at least do 144hz gaming in 1080 (without anti alising)?
>>
>>59990651
depends on the game and cpu you have..

the fury x is only 10% faster in most games compared to rx 580 because the utilisation from games is lacking..

for the longterm, dx12 games gives the fury x a heavy boost. compare doom for example

anyway, make sure you don't get a version with coilwhine if you happen to own it a long period, unless your case is damped
>>
>>59990706
Well if its good I will get 2 for under €440, less expensive than a 1070 here. Can you even oc that shit tho?
>>
>>59990748
what do you game to need 2 of them?

you can OC it by 100hz max if you're lucky

I have a 144hz 1ms benq 1080 ips. If 2 in crossfire can do 144fps in the majority of games at 1080 i'll get them otherwise I'll just get a 1080
>>
>>59990663
Only 10% faster than a 580? Wtf the 580 is dogshit compared to a 1070 while I've seen Fury X even beat it.
>>
>>59990795
never consider crossfire/sli unless you know the game you play most, utilises it perfectly. go with 1080 or atleast wait for vega

>>59990822
the fury x is underdeveloped in current games, except AMD optimised games where it whips the 1070 like Doom and BF1
>>
>>59987511
Keked and checked

OP the price is decent. In the states the Fury non-x has been hitting $230 after a rebate, pretty damn good card. Beats the shit out of any 400/500. Only downsides are the power draw and the meme ram

I know it's all memes but is there a chance that my house will catch fire because of the gpu? I mean it uses 250 watts on 10 square milimeters what if if I let my pc opened when I'm not home and the cooler just stops working?
>>
>>59991043
In my town we have an actual ordinance that anyone running an AMD housefire purchases additional homeowner insurance as well as notifies the local fire district so if they are dispatched to that address to bring everything they've got.
>>
>>59991043
It will either thermal throttle severely or get damaged and turn off forever, there is no way it could set anything else on fire, unless you have a fucking cardboard case

gpu was 250 watt, the water block was rated for 500

as for why, amd wanted to make a premium product, and if the 980ti didn't come out a week before, it would have been a great value and performance king, here's hoping amd doesn't lock full vega to a fucking water loop, I don't need the card costing 100$ more because of a god damn water loop I don't want.
>>
>>59990629
It works in all games, but they are locking it to ones that they know 100% will not cause issues for now so the feature isn't known as 'shit that breaks games' rather than how good it is for lowering temps.
>>
>>59987474
No. The 480 is more power efficient and has more memory and you can OC it. It's not much of a difference.

not strictly true due to the nature of HBM

infact it keeps pace with 1070s so that bodes well for HBM2 and onwards

In many games yeah, it gets average framerates way way higher than you'd expect for a 4GB VRAM card at 1440p and 4K, even when a game is using 6GB+ of VRAM.

But in some games it also stutters when using too much VRAM. Not sure if it's an architecture issue or not, since it is fine in other games that use more VRAM than it has.

buy the 580 instead

Fury X might be a bit faster but its a stuttery mess. The 4gb on is far too limiting. Dont listen to the average fps metrics, look at some digitalfoundry videos for example, take note of the frametimes. It's constantly wiping the memory to fit in new data. HBM helps(hence the good avg fps metrics), but it cannot make up for the lack of framebuffer.
>>
>>59999294
Yeah.
I think if there is a 4GB HBM2 Vega, that might be fine. It looks like they're fixing that issue. But not for the Fury.

Fiji, frankly, was a beta.
