Recently, we got the first take a gander at a few Fiji GPU based graphics cards. One of these new cards was the Radeon R9 Nano which was a little form factor graphics card that was additionally in view of the Fiji GPU. The shockingly little card was a shock and it set aside sooner or later for me to process that this card really houses the top level Fiji GPU and the subtle elements we have gained from AMD at the occasion are shockingly great.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano Detailed – Fiji GPU With 175W Thermal Design and Faster Than Hawaii
We did not go into numerous insights about the card yesterday however, now is the ideal time to detail it a little bit at a time. Above all else, on the off chance that despite everything you need to think about the Fiji GPU, you can visit our other post about the chip here. The AMD Radeon R9 NANO is a modest card, that is the thing that AMD said it himself. It may be modest however, for a card this little, it makes them stun execution and proficiency numbers. This card is really in light of the same 8.9 Billion transistor gloating Fiji GPU which is highlighted on the Radeon R9 Fury X and has 4 GB HBM VRAM committed for gaming that keeps running along a 1024-bit wide bus interface clocked at 500 MHz (1 Gbps viable) that pumps out 512 GB/s bandwidth. This card gloats 2.0 times the execution for every watt contrasted with Hawaii and that is simply insane and yes, it is really quicker than Hawaii as well, not a few numbers AMD is giving out for showcasing.
The AMD Radeon R9 Nano is speedier than Hawaii and we mean the full fat Hawaii chip highlighted on the Radeon R9 290X. They proves that AMD has done some insane work planning this little brute of a card which is only an astonishing designing deed by the group at Red. The other thing is that, the card has a 175W thermal design power and the same goes for typical power usage. AMD has given this card a solitary 8-Pin power connector to encourage energy to it. It has 2 times the execution thickness and is 2 times the execution for each watt contrasted with R9 290X and here is the place things get intriguing.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano Features 85-90% Performance of Radeon R9 Fury X
AMD really has a Fiji XT based card and a Fiji Pro based cards. We have the details down in the table which you can see for correlation. Those cards are additionally evaluated with a 275W TDP while the Radeon R9 Nano, likewise a Fiji based card is 175W. The reason it is so effective needs to do with two things and those incorporate a fundamentally cut down Fiji GPU alongside lower clock speeds. Indeed, even with those set up, the card is still speedier than the 290 and 390 series that are in light of Hawaii GPU. Indeed, AMD affirmed to us that the Radeon R9 Nano is around 85-90% of Radeon R9 Fury X (regarding execution). Despite everything we don’t know in the matter of the amount of degree is the card impaired subsequent to the card has a dispatch slated for later in summer, this year, however I can figure that the card may be estimated around the $449-$499 US range.
There is the reason to accept along these lines, the AMD Radeon R9 390X which highlights the Hawaii XT (Grenada XT) core is said to be slower than the Radeon R9 Nano. The Radeon R9 390X is valued at $429 US right now so it will be an awful choice to launch the card at a lower cost than 390X. The $449 Us and $499 US spots really solid a considerable measure better since it offers preferred execution over R9 390X and even verges on the Radeon R9 Fury X, then it will be a fascinating offering in the purchaser market. Do take note of that this is just a guess and the card may even wind up estimated lower than my guesses here.
The last bit about the card is the thermal solution itself. The single fan air cooler affirms that the card can really be clocked lower to make space for littler PCB and cooler designs. The R9 Fury X utilizes liquid cooling while the R9 Fury is said to highlight a triple fan air cooler. Display yields incorporate three Display Ports and a solitary HDMI display connector. The card is relied upon to release in Summer 2015.
