The listings are from European sites, and all three list the same model name: ASUS-STRIX R9FURY-DC3-4G-GAMING. You can find the listing from the above photo here at the German site Computer-PC-Shop.

We can probably safely assume that this upcoming air-cooled card will make use of the new DirectCU III cooler introduced with the new STRIX GTX 980 Ti and STRIX R9 390X, and this massive triple-fan cooler should provide an interesting look at what Fury can do without the AIO liquid cooler from the Fury X. Air cooling will of course negate the issue of pump whine that many have complained about with certain Fury X units.

We await offical word on this new GPU, and what price we might expect this particular version to sell for here in the U.S.A.

Finally head to head competition. No whine, not even from Nvidia fanboys.

Well it won't be competition for Nvidia.
Guess, performance wise, it will be something over 980 and under 980 TI.
If the price is right though they could sell loads of them.
(Above prices are too dear.)

Just have to remember the Driver situation with AMD.
Like 6 months and no official driver update! (Beta doesn't count)

As some one who have run cards from both vendors for years. I can only say that i havent had any issues with AMD drivers, nor their beta drivers. I have had my 290x for a bit over a year now i think. And i have been running betas for most of that time.

Before that my 680 ran fine with beta drivers as well.

I dont really understand why we need to make this a big issue every time, both companies come up in a sentence.

"Air cooling will of course negate the issue of pump whine that many have complained about with certain Fury X units."

It would be more accurate to say "some have complained about" such as review sites. Many would imply this is a systemic issue. Evidence only supports the problem was limited to an initial batch.
