AMD Radeon R9 Nano Official Specs Leaked, Features fully-fledged “Fiji” GPU and 8.2TFLOPS
AMD is expected to launch its latest super-compact graphics card, the Radeon R9 nano, tomorrow on August 27th. That means the card should be available within a week and the official reviews will start pouring in during the same time periods.
Touted as the most powerful adapter for mini-ITX personal computers ever produced, the R9 Nano is expected to outperform the Radeon R9 290X. In fact, the graphics card will actually offer compute performance comparable to that of the flagship Radeon R9 Fury X.
Today, leak-centric graphics cards site VideoCardz has published an official looking AMD slide, providing a full rundown of the specs of the Radeon R9 Nano. As per leaked details, the card is based on the fully-fledged “Fiji” GPU featuring 3D high bandwidth memory, or HBM. The 4GB of HBM operates at 1GHz, providing 512GB/s of bandwidth.
The six inch long card is equipped with 4096 stream processors, 256 texture units, 64 raster operations pipelines and 4096-bit memory interface.
It will have compute performance of around 8.2TFLOPS, which is only 5 per cent below that of the Radeon R9 Fury X. However, R9 Nano feature 50% higher performance-per-watt, which is a huge leap in power efficiency.
Thermal design power of the card will be 175W, powered via a single 8-Pin connector.
Pricing of the Radeon R9 Nano is unknown as of yet, but it is expected to be around $450 or $500.
