Since the launch of such a hugely anticipated card with heaps of new technology, it was expected that some were going to be faulty/ problematic at first. Since the media had their samples, some noted in the independent reviews; a noise coming from the GPU, which could be coil whine or water pump buzzing. AMD had then confirmed that this issue was only in the initial batch of media sample cards and that the consumer cards would not suffer from this fault.
Well, now it seems that is not the case at all. A new Fury X owner has received his card and seems to have the same or similar sound.Here is the with and without Fury X videos for you to hear yourselves.
Without Fury X installed:
With Fury X installed:
It’s not totally clear what that sound is, it doesn’t seem high-pitched enough to be coil whine, but the user didn’t adjust the pump speed to rule out pump noise. If it is either of those issues, it could make what has already come across as somewhat of a flop of a launch even worse. Let us know what you think that sound is in the comment section.
UPDATE: We have reached out to AMD for an official statement, and if they respond, we will be more than happy to add it to the article to get both sides of the story.
