AMD Radeon R9 Nano begins shipping to partners
Korean site iyd.kr has published images of the AMD Radeon R9 Nano. Reportedly running on a full Fiji chip, which means it has all 4096 stream processors, 256 texture units, 64 raster operations pipelines and a 4096-bit memory interface active just like the full fat R9 Fury.
From the look of it, this is one solid card. Official clock speeds haven’t been announced but considering the single 8 pin PCIe connector juicing it, clocks should be substantially lower than the R9 Fury X. However since the card is being shipped to partners as we speak, the details should all come out pretty soon.
Pokdepinion: AMD claims 2X performance per watt compared to the R9 290X and if this is true, this card will easily be the perfect choice for ITX builds. What’s left to see is the pricing and real world performance against the other cards in its price range, as this will greatly influence whether people who are not limited to the ITX form factor will pick this card instead of its rivals.
