Today we stumbled again with the AMD Radeon R9 Nano, the ITX form factor Graphics card is based on AMD’s new Generation GPU core Fiji. The only data we know is that it is a serious rival to the GeForce GTX 970 in every way, as it should be more powerful (it is speculated that the GPU will feature the full “Fiji” GPU Core) much smaller (six-inch form factor), and its power consumption is only 175W, which is why the graphics card requires a single PCI-Express 8-pin connector.
Also the Radeon R9 Nano packs around 7.84 TFLOPs while the previous Gen R9 290X do just 5.6 TFLOPs. Even the mighty Titan X offers around 7 TFLOPs (SP) and 0.2 TFLOPs (DP), as Maxwell architecture is extremely poor in Double precision FP or FP64 when compared with Kepler. From the previous Gen GTX 780Ti and Titan Black yields around 5.1 TFLOPs (SP). In terms of size, we can compare it with a GeForce GT 730 / Radeon R7 360, and the powerful Radeon R9 Nano is launching in August.

Previously launched the Fury X’s GPU packs a whopping 4096 stream processors, while the air-cooled Fury rocks a cut-down version with 3584. According to AMD’s CEO, the six-inch card will offer “significantly more performance than the Radeon R9 290X,”.
It is expected to be very fresh, as it makes use of a simple cooling system that does not protrude from the PCB. Unfortunately, its price is not known, although it is speculated between 350 and 399 euros.
