AMD provides the specs to the board partners for reference cards, and they assemble them themselves, AMD only makes the Fire series professional cards.
Thanks for replying.
I guess my best bet is to purchase another PowerColor R9 FuryX, open it, measure the component on that board myself and try to determine its value and function then ... unless someone else on the forum with a PowerColor R9 Fury X can help me. I was unable to find a decent PowerColor Fury X to purchase. I might try to replace the component just for practice of SMD soldering, and who knows, might get the card running by some miracle ... but I seriously doubt it.
I did manage to purchase a used Sapphire R9 Fury X which should be delivered soon.
Those Sapphire FuryX are covered with glossy Sapphire Stickers which are apparently difficult to remove and prevent opening the Sapphire Fury X units. Since different manufacturers then no guarantee that same component will have been used on both PCBs.
