Official AMD Radeon R9 Nano Benchmarks Revealed
We know, courtesy of the recently leaked specs of the AMD Radeon R9 Nano, everything there is to know about the small form factor graphics card; and whatever was left has been revealed by the official benchmarks thanks to AMD itself.
AMD was present at the Hot Chips conference in San Jose recently where they have shown how the Radeon R9 Nano is going to perform as opposed to Radeon R9 Fury X and Radeon R9 290X; watt power was also tested.
For a game like Far Cry 4, AMD says that Nano is going to be able to pull 35 frames per second which is better than R9 290X’s 30 but a little less than Fury X’s 40. Using one 8-pin PCIe connector, the small form graphics card is going use 175 watts.
The system used for the testing was a 3-GHz Core i7-5960X with 16 GB of RAM and a Windows 8.1 operating system.
However, they did not share the details regarding resolutions although resolutions form an integral part of such testing alongside frame rates.
If all this impresses you, this link will also show you some of the screenshots that were revealed for the AMD Radeon R9 Nano with the cooler removed.
It is expected that the new graphics card is going to be priced somewhere between $450 and $500 although no official word has been shared on that front.
