The AMD R9 Fury X sports a brand new Fiji GPU which succeeds Hawaii as AMD's new high end GPU (Hawaii powers the 290/X and 390/X series cards). The new GPU is coupled with High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) which is a new memory architecture that allows for significantly higher bandwidth than previous generations. The Fury X is factory overclocked and has a TDP of just 275W, 4GB of VRAM and it comes fitted with a water cooling system which results in a relatively small form factor for a top end graphics card. Although the Fury X only has 4GB of VRAM, this is rarely a problem for gaming even at 4K resolutions. The key comparable for the Fury X is Nvidia's similarly priced 980 Ti. Comparing the 980 Ti and Fury X shows that at stock clocks there is very little between the two cards but 980 Ti has significantly better overclocking potential where it leads by up to 25%. Overall the Fury X trades blows with the best GPUs currently available. [Jun '15 GPUPro]

The RX 470 is the second Polaris based 14 nm graphics card released by AMD this year. The 470 follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful (though still mostly unavailable) RX 480. Based on specs the RX 470 has approximately 10% less processing horsepower than the RX 480. Looking at provisional average benchmarks (we only three samples of the RX 470 at this time) of the RX 480 and RX 470 shows that the performance gap is just a few percent. This performance gap will likely widen as we get a more representative number of samples of the RX 470 but the fact that custom design 470s are already available will likely keep the gap between the 480 less than 10%, at least until custom 480s make it to market. The list prices of both the 4GB RX 480 and RX 470 cards are within 20 USD of each other so AMD have basically re-released the 480 at a slightly reduced price with slightly reduced specs, strange but true! [Aug '16 GPUPro]
