MSI Unleashes the Radeon R9 Fury X Graphics Card

As the world's No.1 in GAMING graphics cards, MSI is pleased to announce the availability of the revolutionary AMD Radeon R9 Fury X. With the MSI R9 Fury X 4G, MSI adds a new high-end graphics card to its recently introduced and already heavily awarded AMD R9 and R7 300 series range. The MSI R9 Fury X 4G is equipped with 4GB of the groundbreaking High Bandwidth Memory, which is engineered directly onto AMD's Fiji XT GPU for unprecedented performance. The AMD Fury X is built for the future of ultra-high resolution gaming and Virtual Reality, which is available for enthusiasts to explore.

The card is housed in a much smaller form factor than we are used to from a top-level graphics card, which means that it fits into nearly any case. It is cooled by a closed loop liquid cooling solution which is included in the box which keeps the GPU around 50 degree Celsius during typical gaming sessions. The radiator can be mounted on the inside of the case to blow the heat directly outwards, it uses a single high quality 120mm fan for quiet performance.
Next to all the impressive technical feats, the MSI R9 Fury X 4G also brings the bling with multiple LED lights located on the side of the card. Some just for cool light effects, others to indicate the GPU intensity level.

Performance Control by MSI Afterburner
When used with MSI's exclusive Afterburner overclocking utility, gamers can control the MSI R9 Fury X 4G core clock speeds for better performance in the latest games. The Fury X is also equipped with advanced fanspeed control based on GPU temperature, giving optimal acoustic performance. MSI Afterburner supports the video capturing function Predator and can even be used on smartphones to monitor and control the graphics card in desktop computers.

Pretty sad when the saving grace is a synthetic benchmark already known to favour AMD's architecture. At least nem only posted the graph once here - I think he's been spamming it all over WTFtech etc trying to wave the Sunnyvale banner in the face of massive schadenfreude

Hahahaha.
Never underestimate the complete lameness of fanboys!
Hey @nem you getting paid for posting the same lame shit over....
...and over...
...and over...
...and over again

How sad. You make Jorge sound like a genius by comparison.
Why are you attacking the guy? All he did was post a DX12 benchmark and you're jumping on him like hes a criminal? Really?? You that mad?? You sound like you have a problem. The Fury X is a VERY viable card for 4K users, or for anyone really, you're getting top tier performance.

There are a lot more rabid Nvidia fans that troll these threads and criticize AMD every chance they get.

This forum used to good a few years ago, heaps of comments, different users, good discussion, but over the last couple of years its turned vitriolic, and most of the old users have left, or don't bother commenting anymore. (Kinda like me, I rarely comment anymore because there is always some negative peanut that wants to argue and rain on people's parade.

The only people writing this card off are morons, and its the same small handful of users that troll negativity on every AMD thread. I have to wonder what their motives are.

BTW, FuryX cards hit a local shop here(MSI, XFX and Gigabyte) in Australia and within hours they were sold out......at the price of $999.00!! People WILL be buying this card whether you nerds like it or not.

Its weird to me how some people write off a card for being a few % behind in some games and a few % above the TI in other games. Its like saying the Bugatti is 5% faster than the Ferrari, therefore Ferrari's are shit. It makes no sense. Its moronic. Most people would not notice the difference between FuryX, 980Ti and TitanX in the real world. For most games people will be getting a zillion FPS

There needs to be some attitude adjustments on this site.

In every single thread he could find. By all means, post the graph - but why post it in every thread across multiple sites - is he getting paid for bulk posting?

My issue is with the same post being spammed across this entire site, as well as a few others - I don't believe I mentioned the card at all. Maybe you could reserve going off the deep end about the card for those who are deriding its features or performance- because you're just sounding very, very defensive.

@HumanSmoke never wrote off the card. If you see his posts he is largely supportive of it. You're defending 'nem' who is simply trolling with that same graph time and time again.
It's people like ''nem' that bring bad reps to sites - delusional, ignorant fan boys.
There are certainly more of them (from both camps) but that's just modern society which has become less constructive and more destructive.
The irony is, an AMD fanboy always claims TPU is full of Nvidia fanboys and vice versa.
As a neutral and emotionless machine, I see Nvidia fanboys as over aggressive little arseholes whereas AMD fanboys are over emotional little arseholes.
We have them both but its annoying when folk have (perhaps mistakenly) defend them, as you have with 'nem'.
All his recent posts are effectively 'Nvidia are crap - AMD will conquer' despite the evidence to the contrary.

Which is clearly trolling.

I believe the important point here is AMD finally came out with a top tier card, with very early drivers, and slugging it out with the GTX 980 Ti. The power usage is much lower than expected, more on par with the 980 Ti than expected, and much lower temperatures - thanks to the water cooler, that would have driven the price up if bought separately.

Card Watt draw [with water cooler included] is about the same as my reference R9 290 overclocked. In reviews I have found on the internet, the Watts used by the Fury X compared to the 980 Ti vary as much as 40 watts difference [reflected in whether or not calculated TDP is the listed watts in the review], and depending upon the review site. The average computer user knows little about hardware and that can be very confusing.

At this juncture my primary considerations for purchasing either of the above cards for my own use are:
  1. Nvidia using GameWorks to usurp power from developers and hiding code from AMD to keep them from making drivers to address code issues.
  2. Nvidia uses less power, but runs hotter. Many games are coded for Nvidia that AMD cannot properly code for.
  3. AMD has a great GPU, on par with the 980 Ti and most of gaming fps/stability differences will improve with future drivers. Unfortunately we will have to wait for them.
  4. Fury X runs much cooler than the 980 Ti, and that will help with [probably static] leakage and longevity.
So, for me, the issue is which card will run smoother, provide good gaming fps, live longer and will be more future proof, now that 4K is achievable. [Most people do not game on a 4K monitor yet, that includes me, and I may never game on a 4K monitor - making HDMI 2.0 irrelevant. I do not believe I will be ditching my 40" monitor that sits 18 inches to two feet from my face.]

For someone else, may be the adgenda is different.

okok but ps4, xbone and wii use AMD
and most game are ported from console
so i think making nvidia hiding shit is in your head bro

I find the posting of DX12 API test a very logical reaction considering that nvidia fanboys where all over the internet these days trolling all articles they could find about Fury.

I guess you have seen the latest news about that Batman game. This is the result of taking perfectly optimized stable code and throwing GameWorks next to it, probably even replacing that optimized code with GameWorks code. Why replacing it? Because if that console optimized code runs better than GameWorks on a i7 system with 4 or more Haswell cores, instead of a poor little APU with Jaguar cores, then you have a problem. You have a HUGE problem if people enable GameWorks in the PC version of the game and see worst performance and much more instability. I don't say that this has happened necessarily, but no one can rule that out. A case where GameWorks performs worst than x86 CPU optimized code, could be the end of it and the starting of a discussion about the necessity of having PhysX and CUDA.

Why attack the guy for posting a benchmark though? Posting a benchmark is trolling ?? Really??? But you can abuse the guy and call him names and that's ok?? For posting a benchmark?? There are heaps of threads were guys post benchmarks for fps, temps, power draw etc.. Usually Nvidia guys reminding us where Nvidia is ahead. I haven't seen people go nuts at those guys for posting benchmarks.

I have never attacked anyone for posting a benchmark. I rarely post here anymore because theres a small bunch of bullies and argumentative people who ruin the site for others. A lot less people post here compared to the old days, and the vibe of the site has changed for the worst over the last couple of years. On the rare occasions that I do post, I usually don't come back to that thread, because I know someone will be wanting to argue.

Its really disappointing when guys drag AMD down every chance you get, without them we are all fucked. A month ago we had to pay $1000 for this performance. The only reason 980Ti was released early was because of FuryX. The FuryX is on par with these cards and prices will go down only because we have competition from AMD. You guys don't see the big picture, and why AMD is so important. I've been buying highend graphics cards of both brands for 16 years, (last Nvidia card was MSI 680 Lightning) and without AMD we will pay $1,000 for a Nvidia enthusiast card... and be stuck on old technology. I wish you guys would see that, and really understand how important AMD is. So what if someone is talking up AMD?? AMD are the underdogs and Nvidia has enough market share, I'm sure Nvidia will survive, I'm sure Nvidia doesn't need your help to sell graphics cards and stay in business..

Anyway, I've made my point and probably wont come back to this thread

Same benchmark in every single thread.
Every. Single. Thread.

Let's play a game. I'll post a benchmark highlighting a single point of reference.

ENJOY !


Now, lets just assume that I post this in every single Fury X...oh hell, why not every single graphics thread.
How long before I would get called out for trolling? One post? two? Think it would go half a dozen without anyone batting an eye like 'nem' did? And if I get called out, how quick would you jump to my defence ?
Yeah, I thought so.

If you can't answer in any way other than how 'nem' was treated I suggest you re-evaluate both your level of anguish and objectivity.

Hiding what? I will reply to your liberal educated message.

www.extremetech.com/extreme/173511-nvidias-gameworks-program-usurps-power-from-developers-end-users-and-amd

Skip the booz drinking at the beginning and skip to 1 hour 3 minutes [1:03:00] for the GameWorks commentary:


what wrong with it?

sure GAMEWORK created by Nvidia not gonna work "great" with AMD. Not much controversy here.
If game dev wanna use it, nvidia not to blame but dev are.


Dude, AMD and NVIDIa. they are both enemies who try to do many thing possible..

Game Dev,editor,creator,artist.etc obv focus console and work after for the PC version.

Your first sentence, quote "what wrong with it?" Answer: Quote you, "so i think making nvidia hiding shit is in your head bro".

First of all, I do not use words like, quote, "shit". So, that is wrong language from my prospective.
Second, your first post to me implied or stated I was wrong. Now you have told me, quote, "Not much controversy here". That is a reversal of your original post.

AMD lets everyone see and utilize their code, including Nvidia - however, Nvidia does not do the same.

I end my replies here if you are going to be illogical and/or belligerent.
