The timely arrival of EVGA's custom GTX 980 Ti, which beats both AMD and Nvidia's reference flagships in raw benchmarks, also takes some of the wind out of the Fury X's sails--wind that can't be countered by AMD's own hardware partners, because the Fury X is limited to reference designs alone.
No, the Fury X isn't Titan-killer that Team Red fans hoped it would be--but it is a GTX 980 Ti equal. This is nothing short of a powerful, thoughtful graphics card that once again puts AMD Radeon on equal footingwith Nvidia's gaming finest. Being one of the most powerful graphics cards ever created is nothing to sneeze at, especially when AMD wrapped it all up in such a lovingly designed package.
AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X kicks ass... even if it doesn't make Nvidia's high-end offerings obsolete.
