    Watching the Livestream reveal at the moment.

    http://www.twitch.tv/amd

    Apparently the R9 Fury X has 1.5 times the performance per watt compared to the R9 290X.

    They have also announced the R9 Fury Nano which also apparently has 1.5 times or 2 times the performance per watt of the R9 290X whilst being in a 6" card.

    The watercooled version of the card has a 500w cooling system to keep the die at 50c and around 19db quieter than the R9 290X

    Release date is 24th June 2015 as long as I heard correctly and the watercooled card will be $649 and the air cooled version apparently will be $549.

    Apart from the inevitable rebrands, it all looks very strong! Especially the Fury X at $649!

    Really does depend on how they perform if they had a Titan beating card would it not be priced as such. The Nano and duel gpu on such tiny pcbs are the ones to watch for me.

    I imagine that it'll beat the 980ti by a little bit (and therefore the price will make sense and be a good deal but not a spectacular deal) and that it'll beat the titan at certain resolutions but not others.

    so if the 390's are rebranded 290's, why are the scores different?

    Rebrands are never exactly the same. They’ll be more efficient usually, so stay at boost clocks for longer, etc etc.

    Cause they are rebrands with faster clocks. If you have a 290x you can flash the bios to a 390x according to some websites.

    I'm a little confused by this performance per watt aspect.

    Does this mean they are going to be 1.5x the performance of the 290X and use the same power or have the same performance but use less wattage, or maybe a combination of both?

    My understanding was it using less power and achieving more performance.

    Could also be as simple as 50% more performance than the 290x at certain resolutions.

    It could be any value CrapBag. Basically they'll assign it a performance value - probably some synthetic benchmark - and measure the power it uses to do it. Divide the performance number by the power and you get your perf per watt.

    Or I suppose they could do a game benchmark and use average power usage and average fps.

    I wonder about the pricing... i just don't see how can it be priced at that level, and to have Fury and Fury Nano bellow it.

    ASUS Strix card just popped up in a local shop here in Slovakia, and the prices are (including VAT) :
    360-2GB @ 133.88 euros;
    370-2GB @ 184.56 euros;
    370-4GB @ 209.89 euros;
    380-2GB @ 253.33 euros;
    390-8GB @ 383.63 euros;
    390X-8GB @ 506.69 euros

    Even with super-negativistic 1 euro = 1 dollar logic, and with 20% VAT included, we end up with the price of 778.8 euros for the Fury X. Where will Fury and Fury Nano sit then ? Especially when the Nano is supposed to be a GTX970 alternative, which is a sub-400 euro card ? Will they price the Fury Nano at 390-8GB level ?

    390 x is £350 on scan in stock as of now. Which is about what a 290x was pre 390x launch.

    At what point? You've been able to pick up 290Xs for around £210 - £250, granted the 4GB version.
