I got the money ready for a second FuryX, a used 5960X and a new 1200Watt PSU. However with VEGA and RyZen news everywhere I have decided to wait a bit more.

Yeah I would wait for Ryzen/Vega. I don't think I could ever consider going CF. When I see a single card performing the same as CF setup, as driver, etc lacks support I think no I can not consider CF. Yesterdays Division charts were an example of this. How I see it is what I would spend on going CF would be better used for a better single GPU when there is one to buy :) .

I will be keeping my FuryX forever no matter what new card I end up getting. This is the first top end ATi GPU I bought during initial release. :D

TBH it's the first card I'm also considering keeping as memento of PC hardware :D and had PC since 1st Pentium.

I really like the AIO, I really haven't noticed pump noise or an issue with it so far. I would say my Fury X has been ran a lot of hours, from last Friday til yesterday it was on a f@h run continously, only few hours break from the task for some gaming :D .

Then it's the size, ever since the 8800 GTX I've always had pretty lengthy cards. It was refreshing to have a high end GPU with short PCB length :) . When I swapped my Hawaii card for the Fury X, I noticed my M7 Ranger has a SATA activity LED on PCB for the first time in over a year :) .

I absolutely luv the black aluminum exoskeleton of the card :D , even the soft touch plastic top and bottom panels are so swish! Having the Radeon logo glowing out the side mesh panel I have is also nice :) .

The whole "out of the box" experience for me has been great :D . As I said before I've had 1x Fury Tri-X and 6x Fury X, one Fury X I received was like this:-




I kept that card for ~28 days and in a spare rig set it to fold, I expected the hoses to rupture but they didn't, I was quite surprised as the coolant hoses are pretty rigid.

Have you figured out how to change the LEDs from red to blue yet?

Also, my FuryX zero core never kicks on. It is the green LED in the picture. I have never saw it.

Also I plan on changing the front plate of my FuryX down the road. With the 3D Printing profile from AMD we can design some really cool stuff.






Or just EKWB it and overclock the shit out of it.

No idea on the zero core power LED, my card rarely is left to sit around idle when PC is on ;) .

It's the panel you posted/I quoted in post 64 that I'd like in black gunmetally finish ;) .

Care to make it purple for us? It would look nice!

You turn on both red and blue and you will get purple. I may actually try this later.

Hi chap, as you know was away when this had occurred. Shocking some of the responses by members, I'm glad @Xzibit was able to have a chuckle, shame he missed the point I was making, no doubt in my mind he does not understand fully want has gone on with Fiji. I was also shocked by @theoneandonlymrk response here. Ahh well again missing the point about what has gone on with Fiji.

Yeah I really didn't wanna get VEGA, but having tried a GTX 1080 without G-Sync monitor and not wishing to pay the premium for one I did end up going VEGA. Isn't as power efficient as GTX 1080 but gaming experience is good due to FreeSync.

Great card IMO in my ownership from March16 (upto early 17). Just a real shame on what AMD did with driver after v16.12. It surprises me how some forums members actually see this is an issue and others not. Sold off Fury X, so it's goodbye to Fiji.

@gupsterg Hi what Vega you got? 56 or 64?
I got my Fury x december of 2016 and now that i finally got Enhanced Sync i'm more happy than before but the lack of oc is painful.
Now i'm considering to buy vega but not at the prices we have here in Eu right now .
I can't pay more than 500€ a Vega 64 when with that much money you can get the cheapest 1080ti or a good gtx 1080 with aftermarket cooling.

I say wait for GDC 2018. New Nvidia lines will drop.

I admire your devotion to RTG, especially after what they did to Fiji and yet you still gave them money for Vega. Dude you are one diehard RTG fan.

RTG will not get another dime from me any time soon. They need to get their shit together both hardware and software. Gotten rid of Raja was a good start though.

@gupsterg Hi what Vega you got? 56 or 64?
I got my Fury x december of 2016 and now that i finally got Enhanced Sync i'm more happy than before but the lack of oc is painful.
Now i'm considering to buy vega but not at the prices we have here in Eu right now .
I can't pay more than 500€ a Vega 64 when with that much money you can get the cheapest 1080ti or a good gtx 1080 with aftermarket cooling.

I got a GigaByte RX VEGA 64 Limited Edition. At the time it was ~£515, got ~£10 cashback and Prey/Wolf.2 FOC (worth ~£40 in my eyes). This bought it down to ~£465 just for V64, about £15 more than best launch day deals I saw. Also at the time EK-Radeon Vega block was also on promo, ~£90.

I had a MSI GTX 1080 EK X for ~30 days prior to going VEGA. It boosted to ~1975MHz as it was under water without me OC'ing it manually. Even though I gained some massive FPS increases vs Fury X it just never felt right for gaming without any variable refresh rate tech. I didn't wanna get into hassle of selling my MG279Q and then stumping up a premium for the PG279Q. So went VEGA.

I admire your devotion to RTG, especially after what they did to Fiji and yet you still gave them money for Vega. Dude you are one diehard RTG fan.

RTG will not get another dime from me any time soon. They need to get their shit together both hardware and software. Gotten rid of Raja was a good start though.

It may seem as if I am die hard RTG fan, but I assure you I am not. Each time I choose an AMD GPU it has been based on price, features and what experience I expect from it. In a way I forced myself and somewhat how market is forced me to go VEGA.

Yes I was fully upset that Fiji got gimped. Once AMD Matt confirmed that the performance gain "we" saw from HBM clock increase in every driver from launch till Dec 16 was not going to be given back in v17.xx.x drivers that made my mind up to sell Fiji.

A ebay FVF promo came up, so I placed it for sale. Just at that time I saw a MSI GTX 1080 EK X for a crazy price, £480. As I was going full WC on ThreadRipper I nabbed it. As some WC parts got delayed the build got delayed. The day I finally built the rig was the day the Fury X sold. When I played a few games with it I was horrified that I actually was noticing lack of FreeSync. I couldn't welch on not shipping the Fury X. It actually gave a better gaming experiencing IMO with lower FPS+FreeSync. Then I tried plenty of things to improve my "game experience" on GTX 1080 and I couldn't in my eyes. Luckily I sold it at no loss and found a reasonably priced VEGA.

nVidia definitely has lead on "product", driver panel is weak. The panel seemed near identical to what I recall when I had a GTX 285/8800. So besides FreeSync the actual driver panel features made me want to be back on AMD. Adrenalin Edition has further raised the bar IMO.

So as you can see by placing/selling the Fury X prior to trying the GTX 1080 I forced myself to go back to AMD. As I had a FreeSync monitor I was also somewhat locked into AMD if I wanted variable refresh rate tech working.

I does more VR than monitor gaming. AMD’s VR support is shitty at best. :(

Maybe in the future i will invest in variable sync monitor. But definitely not free sync. Nothing is free.

VR is not my cup of tea TBH. Considering how much "hoo ha" RTG made of VR it was embarrassing how Fiji never got full support which Polaris had.

I have enjoyed gaming experience more with FreeSync than when I went high refresh rate.
