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 Nvidia GTX 970 is a game changer in terms of performance per watt and value for money. The GTX 970 is based on Nvidia's ground-breaking Maxwell architecture which delivers considerable clock for clock performance gains over Kepler, its predecessor. Comparing the GTX 970 and 780 Ti shows that the two cards offer comparable performance yet the new GTX 970 costs nearly half as much! Unsurprisingly Nvidia are discontinuing the 780 Ti as it's now largely redundant. These price to performance gains typically occur once or twice a decade and although the new Maxwell architecture will improve down the line with the release of the Ti/Titan versions, at the moment the 970 offers the best value for money on the market by miles. Since this summary was originally written AMD have slashed prices and older Nvidia models (780/780 Ti/770) have also been hugely discounted.
