    Well it also recommends a minimum of 8GB of RAM. the two "requirements" may be linked.

    Yeah its a 390X cooler ^^^^

    I would be very interesting to see how this compares, if what you say is true its not just a GTX 980 competitor, its competing with their own R9 390X given they are pretty much exactly the same in performance.

    well considering most custom 980 have a higher tdp than stock, and easily consuming around 250W, its not that impossible.

    The extra length just means the heat can be dispersed better than if it were smaller.

    The fury X comes with adapters. Quite possible the Fury will as well. Failing that there are loads of cheap cable options. DVI like VGA did is becoming legacy at this point.

    Looks like they just took the 390X cooler and slapped it onto the Fury X, hopefully that's not the case otherwise cooling performance may suffer.

    Fury-X uses about 275 Watts, the same as a 290X, it can keep that cool and quiet so i don't see how Fury-X would be any different.

    That long cooler is actually quite brilliant. There's airflow right through the rad on the last fan

    Fury uses HBM so the cooler would be required to make contact with the HBM dies as well, the 390X cooler may not do it efficiently.

    Like the cooler is requires to make contact with 16 Memory IC's, only with HBM its easier as they sit right nexto the GPU and they are half the size. ;)

    well 3rd fan only cooling heat pipe i guess , maybe it would be better fat heatpipes but 2 fans equals short card but 3 slot

    I would be very very surprised if it was the exact same heat sink. I mean the die is now nearly half as big again and with the HBM right next to it, the original contact surface area probably isn't big enough, so it will have been redesigned. Probably to the same outer dimensions so that the shroud and fans can remain the same.

    Cool do they support 144hz? My Benq which was bought last year only has DVI for 144hz

    Good point, a Hawaii cooler just wouldn't fit, plus you would have the overhanging Memory IC plate which would cover half the PCB, caps and all-sorts getting in the way.

    Still,if R9Fury isn't loud or too power hungry I suspect it will defeat GTX980 comfortably in the $549 bracket.
    AMD release drivers are never as slick as NVidia and performance quite often improves noticeably over time as well.
    I suspect Fiji Pro ,on air maybe quite a card.
