I personally think that Fury suffers more from a bad marketing strategy rather than being a bad product.
As you can see most benchmarks put the Fury X about 5% behind the 980 Ti, but Tom's Hardware puts it ahead and HardOCP's settings seem carefully chosen to make the 980 Ti look good.
AMD community lashing out.
Some Fury X benchmarks compared (curiously different results)
If AMD did that the card would use up to 350W and you'd call it a failure because it's literally an oven.If AMD had skipped HBM entirely and instead made a regular Fury with HDMI 2.0 and 8 GB GDDR5 for $500, it likely would have beaten the 980 enough to make it an attractive purchase and alternative.

Well I have looked at 2 other reviews of the card beside this one and I don't understand the limited testing done by Hardopc and mainly the 4 games that Fury X was weak at but the other sites shows a lot more game testing like HardwareCanucks which showed the games Fury X was strong at and not the let down that Hard has shown it to be.
Really disappointed but not by AMD.
I would say that the PR/Marketing of the the AMD graphics groups surely looks like that of their CPU division. Oversell and under-deliver.
In a nutshell AMD just isn't very good at being a company. The engineers are of course gods. The stuff these guys do blows my mind, but the rest of the clowns there from software to marketing to management really seem to be phoning it in.
Amd failed in like 3 big ways with this card imo. First it was late, 2nd was 4 gigs of vram is just not enough for a "flagship" card in today's world, last of all no hdmi 2.0+. <-- 3 big reasons why i call this a fail for Amd. Those are not ranked in any specific order. [H]ard ran all the test and the data does not lie, they call it like they see it. Well done to Kyle, Brent, and the rest of the team.
Would have pushed pricing down on the nV side.
Those stats roughly look like the breakdown of the general gpu marketshare of nvidia/amd.
my main regret of the fury x performance levels is that I wanted to post a graphic of prime/jokers tears being used as the coolant for the fury x cards as it slapped around the 980ti, but that was not to come to pass. And it saddens me. I want to see them cry and amd has denied me my chance.
WHY AMD !!!!!!!
