I recall making similar videos in middle school to accompany PowerPoint presentations when I had to kill time. Lots of hype here, and now we wait for the actual content to see if it's justified.

The video highlights the performance improvements, and new features.
I didn’t see anything of the sort...I’m with W1z that was a complete waste of time. Sadly my Fury will be left out of any improvements anyway as always...

Instead of paying some agency for that video they could have hired a student for a year to give some love to Fury owners...

I really don't give bananas if they don't support Fury X when is not too far away behind Vega 56.

Yeah it’s pretty sad, the fact is Fury is still the Flagship before Vega yet it’s been the most neglected flagship I’ve ever owned and I’ve owned a lot of ATI/AMD flagship cards in the last 20 years. I mean I’m still happy with it but it’s sad it’s been so forgotten. I mean we could have at least gotten a full featured Wattman like Polaris got....

Coming from W1zzard, the confirmation of Fury/X's death felt even worse.

@fullinfusion See? No more Fury/X support.

At least you didn't pay for some jacked up launch proce for a FuryX. I feel like the ultimate sucker for buying into their BS FuryX

I only waited as long as it took for custom cards and jumped right on. The bonus is I also have a Fury X on air and I didn’t even do that trick until maybe last year.

Does AMD know that Adrenalin is a trademarked name, according to Wikipedia? (yeah it's also the alternative spelling of adrenaline)

Also, yeah it's early, anyone possibly with more info know what the lowest GPU this will support?

AMD learned long ago that marketing is a lot cheaper than R&D...

Wonder if they finally fixed the Overwatch bug that hasn't been fixed since 17.7.

Never had that bug myself and I've been playing on and off since Overwatch release with monthly driver updates. Moira David Bowe skin still eludes me

Dude, sell the card already, buy a 920 for the time being, complaining and not providing a solution gets you nowhere.

Because it's FUN! Just like when Phenom 2 X2 555BE would unlock fully into 965/B55s with multiplier/fsb unlocked!

Spending more time with the family might be better served then trolling complaining at every opportunity.

Keep those "students" away from your VR headset too.
