CM were working on their Silencio FP at the time (which then got redesigned into MasterFan Pro Air Pressure) and it wasn't ready for Fury X from what I remember.
That thing does not have similar fan plate structure though(not jointed fans). I'm kind of confident that the fan plate structure is patented by nidec, thus making similar fan would be very risky. Is tpu getting one to review? If not I'm confident that we will see the exact model from some other reviewer.

Now that you mention it, the patent does make things interesting. Let me check and confirm about the fan.

No idea if TPU is getting the watercooled edition for review at this point, but we should still be able to confirm this.

If Vega is gonna cost same as 1080 and perform the same, then nvidia has the power advantage as it uses less watts. Let’s wait for the reviews.

There might be an advantage to using more power. Miners would flock to the competition and leave Vega for the gamers. Eager to see some real reviews and see some non-reference cards with better thermal / noise performance.

I'm already thinking which one to take, I doubt I'll go with reference although blowing that heat out would be nice. But I think I'll go either with AiO or aftermarket cooler ones. Unsure how it would work if both CPU and GPU AiO's were dumping the heat inside the case on the front of the case. That would be like 500W of heat dumped into the case. We'll see...

I got to say it looks really good , I like the clean minimalist look. I hated that weird-ass-red-plastic-accent-indentation crap AMD used to do.

I'm loving the idea folk will pre-order without a good slew of reviews. And I can keep this purely in AMD's camp by saying when Ryzen came out I did a silly load of meta reviews to decide which to buy (1800X or 1700X). It is a sign of silly to pre-order without a good idea of any possible issues (i.e. Ryzen and memory - though I studied and bought via the QVL). Wait for reviews before pre-ordering people - wait for reviews.

There's always going to be people pre-ordering , can't do anything about it. I suppose it is a good idea if you want to make sure will get on of those limited edition cards , although you'd have to be some pretty hardcore fan with loads of cash at your disposal at which point it wouldn't matter anyway.

If only people were that patient with post, for or against a product. Then again it be quiet around here.

BTW anyone figure out what Linus meant by "Better support for FreeSync"? If it part of their FreeSync 2 push.

I'm a review whore, can't get enough. But we're all human so it's easy to get pulled in by the hype black hole.

1070/1080's been out for 15 months already so stock pile of is plentiful so prices won't be impacted any.

You think so? RX 480 has been out for what, 13 or 14 months now? Once crypto-miners decided it was a desirable card, stock disappeared and prices went up to 1080Ti range. :kookoo:

I think it will require more work to get it to perform at mining, but I cannot really see what the benefit to gamers would be at this point, it's slower than an already available 1080Ti, and if you have the money for Vega you should just buy a 1080.

2900 anyone?

Well yes that's true, but Fury X's AIO unit is from Cooler Master too. Surely they would have used their own fans on fury x instead of third party Nidec, but maybe it's not cooler master but AMD(or should I say Sapphire) who assembles and chooses that Fan on the card.
Does Cooler Master actually manufacture fans? They likely just buy them and brand them. They could just buy "Gentle Typhoons" from the OEM.

Fortunately, GPUs seldom have issues like motherboards do. And personally, I blame the OEMs for the board ram issues... look how many still have problems clocking ram, even after the supposed "savior" BIOS update.
