On 16th June at PCGaming show AMD has showcased its Fiji GPU based design cards. One of these new cards was the Radeon R9 Nano, which was based on a SFF Design powered with a powerful Fiji Core GPU. The shockingly little card was an astonishment for many of us, and it sets aside eventually for me to process that this card really houses the top level Fiji GPU and the points of interest we have gained from AMD at the occasion are shockingly great.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano Detailed – Half the Size of R9 290X, Double the Performance
Yesterday we didn’t have much to share about this card, yet now is the right time to detail it a tiny bit at a time. The AMD Radeon R9 NANO is a small card, that is the thing that AMD said it themselves. It may be tiny yet for a card this small, it makes them stun execution and productivity numbers. This card is really featuring the same 8.9 Billion transistor bragging Fiji GPU, which is included on the Radeon R9 Fury X and has 4 GB HBM VRAM devoted to gaming that keeps running along a 1024-bit wide interface timed at 500 MHz (1 Gbps effective) that pumps out 512 GB/s transfer speed. This card brags 2.0 times the execution for every watt contrasted with Hawaii and that is simply insane and yes, it is really faster than Hawaii as well, not a few numbers AMD is giving out for showcasing.
As I have mentioned above AMD Radeon R9 Nano is faster than Hawaii and we mean the full fat Hawaii chip highlighted on the Radeon R9 290X. This demonstrates that AMD has done some insane work planning this little monster of a card which is only a stunning designing deed by the group at Red. The other thing is that, the card has a 175W TDPP and the same goes for regular force use. AMD has given this card a 8-Pin power connector to power it. It has 2 times the performance density and is 2 times the performance per watt compared to R9 290X and here is where things get interesting.
The last bit about the card is the thermal solution itself. The single fan cooler affirms that the card can really be timed lower to make space for littler PCB and cooler design. The R9 Fury X utilizes liquid cooling while the R9 Fury is said to highlight a triple fan air cooler. For display outputs we have three Display Ports and an HDMI connector. The card will be available from Summer 2015. The expected price of this little bad boy is between $449-$499.
