I can't help but think that shroud looks really cheap. Its a shame they couldn't have done it in a nicer way.

I have to agree with this statement. I think that it looks way to much like the Fury X and it will confuse people.

Current AMD lineup is already quite confusing for people who don't follow the gpu market

I mean, all those Xs, R9 3xx and Fury, the Nano etc

I've just looked at my source again, it looks like they have changed it lol.

They originally said that the GPU was a Fury X, but I pointed out that the box said Fury, without an X. I guess they realized that they were wrong.

Yeah, they just saw the cooler and though Custom R9 Fury X and didn't read the box.

It is really going to confuse those who are not in the know about these things.

Watercooled Fury will be good but a Fury X with literally a different lick of paint makes no sense considering the Fury X does look really nice IMO.

The cost premium for adding that AIO on the Fury just means it won't be much more to get a regular Fury X. Only way I could see it being worth it is if you flash the BIOS and unlock the extra cores.
