AMD Radeon R9 Nano Announced, It’s Tiny and it’s Powerful

AMD officially launched their latest graphics cards based on the new Fiji GPU recently. There are five main products that were announced that will be powered with the new Fiji core and HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) technology. One of them is the new AMD Radeon R9 Nano graphics card, a very short graphics card, no longer than 6 inches. Dr. Lisa Su said that she personally likes this graphics card when she introduced it. The R9 Nano isn’t just a mainstream graphics card, it’s a full blown enthusiast graphics card that is on the same tier with the Fury. More details below.

AMD Radeon R9 Nano Powered with Fiji and HBM Technology

Like I said earlier, the AMD Radeon R9 Nano is only 6-inches long. It’s also air cooled and draws its power from a single 8-pin PCIE power connector. It has a TDP of only 175W and is said to be 2x the performance per watt compared to the R9 290X.

It could easily be mistaken as an entry level graphics card, or somewhat in the R7 series. But it’s definitely not! This tiny but powerful graphics card is said to be faster than the R9 290X according to Dr. Lisa Su. At this point, we are not sure yet how powerful this graphics card is, but considering that it features Fiji and HBM, it could be faster than the R9 390X (or probably not).

AMD Radeon R9 Nano-01

Based on the render image, there are four HBM on the core, indicating that it could also have 4GB of memory. If the performance of this GPU is comparable with GTX 980, I think this would be a fantastic card for small form factor builds.

In terms of connectivity options, the Radeon R9 Nano has the same set of display ports as the Fury cards. It has 3x DisplayPorts and an HDMI port.

AMD Radeon R9 Nano Specifications

Unfortunately, most of the specifications of the AMD Radeon R9 Nano are currently undisclosed. AMD will most probably disclose its full specifications when they launch the graphics card.

Price and Availability

There is no exact date as to when the Radeon R9 Nano will be released. But AMD did announce that it will be launched later this summer. If the R9 Nano is faster than the R9 390X, is may be priced somewhere in between the R9 390X and Fury, probably around $500-ish.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
