Radeon R9 Fury and R9 Fury X availability check: nope

AMD's R9 Fury and R9 Fury X may not be the absolute fastest graphics cards on the planet, but they're still very fast–and very new. If you want to support the red team by dropping your cold, hard cash (or plastic) on its new hotness, though, you may have a tough time. A quick survey of Newegg, Amazon, Tiger Direct, and NCIX in the US reveals that no R9 Fury or R9 Fury X cards from any of AMD's partners are in stock. 

Right now, prices for R9 Fury X cards hover slightly above AMD's $649.99 suggested price, often in the $669-$679 range. Of all the retailers we checked, only Newegg has a listing at AMD's suggested price, in the form of Sapphire's R9 Fury X. It's not in stock, but since all of the Fury X models are clocked at the same speeds and use the same coolers and fans, this card may one day be the way to go.

As for the R9 Fury, it only came out this past Tuesday, July 14. Even finding listings for these cards is difficult, as Tiger Direct and Amazon don't list a single one. As for the other vendors we checked, nobody has any Furies in stock. Newegg has the Asus Strix R9 Fury (which Scott reviewed) listed for $569.99, and Sapphire's R9 Fury Tri-X up for $559.99. For some reason, NCIX US has the same Sapphire card posted for an eye-popping $849.99

In Canada, things are a little better. You can actually buy Sapphire's R9 Fury X from NCIX for $869.99. Newegg.ca has some listings in the $829.99 range, but none of those cards are in stock.

    Selling out is preferable to not having any sales, and I don’t see what it matters if you aren’t looking to buy one. The people who want to buy one will wait for them to come back in stock. Prices will also come down once supply can match demand, so it’s best to wait out the initial run. Early adopters pay the highest prices, so I wouldn’t condone buying these things until the market settles, plus you might see some price drops on the competition or mid-range alternatives.

    Overall, complaining about the supply is meaningless, and appears to just be a jab at AMD for having a product that is too popular for the comfort of the complainers. AMD doesn’t have a Fury in stock, so buy a 980Ti, that kind of thing. The only problem with that logic, is the Fury isn’t in stock because those people aren’t buying 980Ti’s. LOL.
    (edit: grammar.)

    Not exactly condoning the Fury, but AMD apparently has a product that people want, and you won’t see product staying in stock until supply catches or surpasses the demand. I doubt the people who want one have a problem with using auto-notify for availability, and as long as that’s true casual window shoppers won’t see them in stock until the market stabilizes.

      [quote<]The only problem with that logic, is the Fury isn't in stock because those people aren't buying 980Ti's. LOL.[/quote<] Yeah, we'll see about that rather soon. Nvidia is going to do this thing called "issue a quarterly report" soon. Something tells me it will be missing something that AMD's quarterly report had: A minus sign in front of the net revenue number.

        Troll logic. AMD video cards =! AMD as a whole. Same with NV. Enthusiast video cards aren’t their primary market.

        I’m sure NV is still selling plenty of 980Ti’s. The difference here is that AMD finally has a worthy product, and people who aren’t die hard NV zealots are buying the Fury as fast as AMD can get it in stock. I don’t know what the numbers exactly are, but that’s irrelevant. The point is that AMD has a product that people are buying faster than they can stock it, and you’re acting like this is somehow a bad thing, when it’s not.

        In case you don’t get it, I’m making fun of how ridiculous you people twist things to insult AMD. There isn’t a single piece of AMD news that you guys don’t pervert into a pejorative. It’s really disgusting, and the mental gymnastics are quite laughable. I kinda enjoy reading how low you’ll stoop to do it.

        I think AMD and NV are fully capable of making sales based on the merit of their products. We don’t need this constant trolling and manufactured drama, and I don’t see why you would do it, unless you were getting paid, or just enjoy being a troll in general.

    I checked last week and there were plenty in stock. Demand high or supply low?

    So will the Fury Nano suffer from the same fate?

    I have a 6970 that is okay right now but possible be convinced of an upgrade around December. (I also have a 7950 in another system that I am very happy with.)

    Protip: High-end GPU platforms always have supply issues at launch.

      UK stock of Sapphire Radeon Fury Tri-X OC seems good but £20-25 over the odds, not much of other brand Furies though — and only 1 (PowerColor) Fury X anywhere to be seen, and at a gouging £650 (launch was £510).

    • Chrispy_

    UK check of the usual suspects says that only the Sapphire Fury is available in any quantity. Everything else is on pre-order ranging from 24th July to Mid-August

    Props to the 5000 PC gamers that bought a R9 Fury X.

    The ratio of available Fury X to Fury cards is the same as the ratio of leprechauns to unicorns.

      that’s offensive to me as i believe in leprechauns and unicorns.

      When you can get a 980ti starting at 795 maple syrup beaver dollars, the Fury X is a very hard sell at $869.

      Either way, both of those prices are ludicrous for a single chip graphics card.

        • beck2448
        • 5 years ago

        Since custom cooled ocd 980 tis are faster out of the box, in some cases dramatically so, AMD is in a tough spot counting on sympathy customers.

        • Vaughn

        The cheapest Ti at canada computers is $849!

        Where are you seeing a ti for $795 cad?

    I don’t really care, but: Scan has’em in the UK.
    Ohhhh! Missus! AMD are so useless they only had two!
    Ugrghhh! Mister! AMD had millions everyone loved’em so they sold out in a second!

    • ronch

    I know it takes time for any company to ramp up production around launch time, but why does it seem like AMD really takes its sweet time ramping up production every product launch? This has been going on since the K6-2 days, IIRC. Other companies spend tons of time months prior to launch to fill entire warehouses and cargo ships with their launch product because they know people will be lining up outside stores to buy one.

    Or is AMD facing allocation issues with their foundries? Would it be far-fetched to think that TSMC and GF are giving AMD low priority in the pecking order due to low anticipated demand for AMD chips?

      • HisDivineOrder
      • 5 years ago

      I think AMD waits so long to replace their product lines that by the time they do, they’re in a mad dash to just get it out ASAP. This leads them to “release” it before they have a full inventory to “unleash.”

      This creates shortages and the appearance of a mostly paper launch even when they happen to have a few units to sell.

      You can hop on over to Mars One’s website and buy a mug too, to help them get their hopefuls over to Mars and leave them there to freeze. 😀

    Maybe they’re eschewing massive profits to listen to their customers and fix the whining noise the cards make… or maybe not.

    • homerdog

    Word is that yields are very low and AMD can’t supply enough cards to its board partners. If you google “R9 Fury yields” it’s all over the place, but the original source is almost impossible to suss out which is why I categorize this as a rumor.

    In my personal opinion I think the rumors pass the smell test and yields are indeed at least below expectations.

      • BlackStar
      • 5 years ago

      I wouldn’t say below expectations, I remember reading that Furies were supposed to be low volume items. It’s just that the demand has outpaced the supply, as it often happens with new products.

      • Nevermind
      • 5 years ago

      Rumors are rumors. Don’t be a gossip.

    • HisDivineOrder
    • 5 years ago

    New cards are usually hardest to get. Surprising, though, that the card with the water cooler is a tad bit easier to find a listing for. I think nVidia’s been doing a bit better at getting its new cards out there with listings, if not in stock inventory.

    I think AMD is in a bit of a time crunch to really maximize their gains on this card. At least, that’s how it feels.

      The GTX 970 and GTX 980 were difficult to acquire the first month they were available and remained scarce throughout the holidays due to demand.

      • Nevermind
      • 5 years ago

      The water cooled card came out first, uh, so yeah.

    • PrincipalSkinner

    Got ’em here across the Atlantic for measly 820 euros.

      Ouch.
