Early reports from Computex appear to indicate that the upcoming AMD Fiji XT based GPU, rumored to be known as Fury X, trails the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti in gaming performance. It is worth noting that the card on display at Computex is still in a prototype state and "AMD is still playing around with optimizing clocks and the drivers are nowhere near perfect." AMD could find itself in a rough patch if the Fiji XT doesn't perform on par with the recently released GTX 980 Ti. It is now known that the liquid cooling apparatus for the card is being manufactured by CoolIT, and the card is expected to be on a short PCB due to the power supply circuitry layout. Updates to the original article confirm that the card will launch at E3 and that AMD isn't worried about internal performance numbers as the card is still being tweaked.
