    Legally, you don't even have the right to do so. When you are doing so, you agree that your warranty voids.

    About what's interesting and what's not..... let's keep such subjective definitions out of the discussion.

    Fury X is the competitor of Titan X.

    While 980 TI has no direct answer from AMD.

    What? Since when is voiding your warranty against the law?

    Does the fury x consume more power than the titan x?

    Statistically yes but realistically you won't notice a difference.

    What do you mean by statistically? I just want to know if under a heavy load what the power draw difference is? ie 220w vs xxxwatts.

    Sure. Hindsight is always 20/20. Doesn't mean they made the right strategic decisions. Their decisions may have been understandable, but it's still sad that they can't outperform the 980 Ti with 30% more memory bandwidth.

    220 vs 245, for example.

    Yes. The 980 Ti and Titan consume the same amount of power, and both consume significantly less than the Fury X.

    Well yes it uses more power than a Titan X or 980 Ti and also needs unlocking of voltages to overclock, it will use much more power if its overclocked with upping the voltage. Its just not as efficient as an architecture when power is concerned as Maxwell 2.

    Titan X is faster at 4K, faster by a bigger margin at 1440p and an even bigger margin at 1080p, has three times the memory, overclocks much better and is in a different price category.

    How is the Fury X in any way a Titan X competitor? Different price segment and different performance.

    Yes, this is why AMD chose to compare the Fury X to the 980Ti in their own marketing slides and review guides while also pricing the card at the exact same price point the 980Ti has.

    It's still a worse deal than the 980Ti because the 980Ti has more memory, clearly wins 1440p and 1080p, roughly matches or slightly beats furyx at 4K, overclocks much better and also comes in non reference flavors that ramp up stock performance by 15%.

    Fury X is a worse deal than the 980Ti unless we're talking about SFF but it's most definitely aimed at being a 980TI competitor by AMD.

    I see on techreport review, 330W for the TitanX, 330W for the FuryX and 327W for the stock 980TI ( goes way higher for the non stock one ).. so much difference.. ( ofc it is the full system
    funny all review i see show the fury faster at 4k..

    ANd i got the review guides here and i see nothing in it who match whatt you are saying .. And i can imagine that tridam, rys, guys from anand and other can match my voice on it.

    Not sure which review you were reading ;)

    Anandtech.

    4k

    Battlefield 4: Ultra Quality Titan X 16 % Faster
    Shadows of Mordor: Ultra Quality: Equal
    Civilization beyond Earth: Titan X 7% faster
    Dragon Age Inquisition: Ultra Qaulity: Titan X 17% Faster
    Talos Principle: Ultra Qaulity: Fury X 7% Faster
    Far Cry 4:Ultra Quality: Fury X 5% Faster
    Total War: Max Quality: Fury X 4% Faster
    Grid Auto Sport: Ultra Quality: Titan X 18% Faster
    Grand Theft Auto V: Very High Quality: Titan X 16% Faster

    In All of these games the min frames are lower on Fury X


    Tech Report:

    http://techreport.com/review/28513/amd-radeon-r9-fury-x-graphics-card-reviewed/14

    Outside of Witcher all other games were at 4k

    Everything Tabulated

    Titan X is Faster by 11% or so

    Hexus
    4k

    Alien Isolation: Titan X 20% faster
    BioShock Infinite: Titan X 4% Faster
    Grand Theft Auto V: 16% Faster
    Grid Auto Sport:Titan X 10% Faster
    Shadows of Mordor: Equal
    Tomb Raider: Fury X 2% Faster
    Total War Rome: Titan X 14% Faster
    Witcher 3: Titan X 3% Faster

    If you were talking about the 980 Ti just cut the results in half, 980 Ti and Fury X are very close in performance at 4k.

    On the power usage side of things, almost all reviews are 20 watts to 80 watts difference. There might be one or two reviews are either lower or higher than those numbers. But average is around 50 watts.

    Look at TPU, Fury X needs a driver or two to fix the performance issues in some titles and it will win.

    You can start with this page:
    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/R9_Fury_Strix/7.html

    Alien: Isolation
    3840 X 2160

    GTX 980 Ti 62.0 FPS
    R9 Fury X 62.2 FPS

    and then you can follow the next page, and next, and next, all the way to the end.

    And then, return here and honestly say.

    Well, AT are not giving min. fps for many of those games, not that I doubt Titan X would be doing better. And Civ. BE with mantle on AMD,

    It's better than Titan X as well.

    It's better than 980Ti in the TPU review if you don't include Project Cars, Wolfenstein(which AMD have some bug with) and WoW(they didn't include it either because of high fps?) . Between the two GM200 cards. However with its lower vram and lower overclocking ability, it's still not enthusiast choice card over either. Even if better drivers push it slightly above Titan X in majority of titles.

    That's an unusual result. The exact result will depend quite a bit upon the specific testing setup and the software used. But most reviews I've seen put the 980Ti and Titan at the same power consumption, and the Fury X at about 15-25 watts higher.

    Not the reviews I've seen. See here, for example:

    This specific advantage will likely disappear with DX12.

    Then the general disadvantage will likely disappear as well.
