AMD is about to launch its latest graphics card Radeon R9 Nano tomorrow, 27 August. Many of us were thinking about the official specs of this little beast but the wait is over. Final specifications of the R9 Nano are confirmed by Videocardz and the report says that The R9 Nano features 4096 Stream Processors.

The R9 Nano is the most powerful Mini-ITX GPU at the moment, based on Fiji GCN architecture. The little beast is clocked up to 1000 MHz, with 64 compute units and ROPs along with 256 Texture units. This is the second GPU from AMD powered by HBM having memory of 4GB and can deliver bandwidth up to 512 GB/s. Following are the complete specs.

AMD has really improved the TDP of Nano as compared with previous GPUs, including Fury X which was 275 W, while the TDP of upcoming R9 Nano is 175 W (100 W less than Fury X). It will require a single 8-pin connector. Note: The R9 Nano doesn’t comes with an external cooler like the R9 Fury X.

Its said that the AMD’s R9 Nano is all set to compete against NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980, but the price of R9 Nano is not confirmed yet, therefore its bit early to say something at the moment. But it should be around $549 (guess). The GTX 980 is bigger than Nano if compared in terms of size. AMD also published the improvement seen from GDDR5 and the new HBM, it becomes clear that the HBM is most power efficient type of memory available in the market. Check it here:
