    Thought this was interesting. Looks like AMD might be getting some much needed capital.

    AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) Selling Off 20% of its Shares to Silver Lake

    The timing seems strangely coincidental to all the news that has hit with DirectX 12. Get's me a lot more excited for Zen and CES 2016!

    Maybe they can solve their supply problems and begin to charge decent prices for Fury GPUs.

    Honestly, if people are willing to pay $700-$800 for the things, I wonder how much control AMD can have over that. I'm an AMD fan and I don't understand paying that much for fury.

    If there were a lot of them available for sale, there would be a lot less price gouging going on. They need to fix their supply problems, or whatever is keeping them from selling in large quantities.

    $700-$800?!
    Some of us aren't willing to pay that. They aren't worth the $650 suggested retail price.

    I just bought three R9-280X Sapphire Tri-X GPUs for less than the price of one Fury card.
    If you were considering shelling out that much cash for a GPU, why wouldn't you be looking at the GTX-980Ti that outperforms Fury in most current benchmarks?

    I agreed, the 980 Ti will be much better choice than Fury (comparing almost the same price range).

    $545.00 is a great price for that Sapphire card. (Sapphire being my favorite AMD based brand)
    Fury is a much better deal at a discount.
