AMD Radeon R9 Nano hits retail/e-tail, gets reviewed

by on10 September 2015

For US $649/€699

Although officially launched in late August, the AMD Fiji GPU-based mini-ITX Radeon R9 Nano has now started to show up in retail/e-tail, priced at US $649 in the US and around €699 in Europe. The first reviews are coming in.

While AMD was quite picky about which sites will do the AMD Radeon R9 Nano review, surprisingly excluding some of the usual suspects, there are quite a few reviews around. Based on a fully enabled Fiji GPU, the Radeon R9 Nano is a 6-inch mini-ITX graphics card with 4096 Stream Processors, 256 TMUs, 64 ROPs and 4GB of High Bandwidth Memory paired up with a 4096-bit memory interface.

Since it is pretty much a Radeon Fury X graphics card packed on a small PCB, with lower 175W TDP and with special air cooling, AMD had to lower the GPU clock down to 1000MHz and use a 4+2-phase VRM powered by an 8-pin PCI-Express power connector.

Launched with the same price as the Radeon Fury X graphics card, US $649/€699, the Radeon R9 Nano is now available in some shops, including XFX Radeon R9 Nano which is listed at for US $649.99 and Sapphire's R9 Nano which sells for US $764.89, which is quite a premium.

Europe is again out of luck as the suggested price for R9 Nano lands at €699 but most retailers/e-tailers are currently charging a premium and it is listed anywhere between €719.99 and €755.

There are plenty of reviews available and most of them agree that Radeon R9 Nano is a great graphics card and packs quite a punch for its size, especially now that Radeon Fury X is in short supply and retailers are charging quite a premium for it.

In case you do not have room for a bulky liquid cooling solution on the Radeon Fury X, the smaller Radeon R9 Nano is the way to go. If you are looking for that slightly more performance, than just try to find the Radeon Fury X available, or wait for the supply to get better and buy at a reasonable price.
