In case you forgot, tomorrow is the day AMD will finally launches its direct competitor to NVIDIA’s Maxwell GM200 products. The lucky few will even be able to buy them.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury launches tomorrow
Retailers are reporting Fury X will go for sale starting from tomorrow. You can find numerous online listings with prices varying from 650 USD to 1000 USD. The price of Fury X might be higher in places where restocking will take time.
AIBs did their best to provide as many units for sale as possible. The cards that will ship to customers this week may look slightly different from ‘final’ versions of those models.
AMD Radeon R9 Fury X has 3 parts that can be customized by AIBs: fan sticker and both front and back plate. Sapphire went little further than others and they designed their own front and back plates with Sapphire and Fury X branding, yes, this is in fact the first card with Fury X logo.

Some reviewers were eager to share first teardown pictures of their samples. There are so many pictures available that I had problem choosing which one to share.
