Right now you can tweak the voltage of your Fiji based GPUs in several overclocking software suites.

I don't run mine overclocked though, but I did get mine to 1070Mhz, or maybe it way 1075mhz with 550MHz HBM.

Afterburner is the utility to use, especially with the initial BIOS and it allows an offset of +100mV which correlates to approximately 1.3V. The core and memory clock each have their own offset and there is a power target just like nVidia cards. Overclocking them is actually quite enjoyable but how much they will overclock and how much performance that translates too can really vary. I have one which can do 1200/540 but others i've heard only do 1150 or 1100, not much considering stock is 1050 but it can make quite a big performance difference beyond 1100.

Fury X Firestrike stock v 1200/540

I'd update my bios, just don't know how to foe the GPU.

As for overclocking, many suites already support it. AB is probably still the best though. Farthest I could get mine iirc was 1150 on the core. Never tested memory, I couldn't touch the voltage on that for some reason. I saw pretty big improvement in my benchmark scores though like JR posted

Those are some nice numbers. If only there was a review with your card or one that achieved similar speeds against a 980ti or TX.

The Fury X is now in stock pretty much everywhere, however I was really hoping there was eventually be aftermarket versions with beefed up power delivery. One can dream.

They should have let em. But they want to keep the premium line to it like they do with the TX. TBH it's a mistake. If they want the premium ideal behind the FX, only let AIBs make there best cards for it, like Lightning and etc.

Yup. The fury X is quite a nice card. Even JRs Fury X score is roughly equal to a 980ti at about ~1450.
