Radeon R9 Nano Might Launch with Full Fiji Graphics Processor
Originally announced during PC Gaming Show 2015, the Radeon R9 Nano is scheduled to arrive in a couple of months and is turning out to be an interesting product with each passing day.
We already know that the R9 Nano will be twice as power efficient as Radeon R9 290x and will require as low as 175 Watts to power up. The newest bit of information comes from AnandTech who are speculating that Nano could have the same GPU as Fury X, but at a lower clock speed with far less power leakage.
If we consider it to be true, R9 Nano turns out to be nothing, but a power efficient version of Fury X, designed for less demanding applications and only limited by less clock speed and a single 8-pin connector.
Moreover, in case you are planning to get a R9 Nano and overclock it, you will not be able to do so effectively and may have to switch to Fury X or Fury non-X for the purpose.
It is also being reported that Fury non-X will be based on a cut down version of the Fiji GPU:
“Unlike the R9 Fury X, the R9 Fury will be an air cooled card, with AMD’s partners putting together their own designs for the card. It will be based on a cut down version of the Fiji GPU – so you won’t be seeing any air cooled full-performance Fiji cards.”
Radeon Fury non-X is scheduled to arrive on Jul. 14, 2015. Keep checking back for more information as we near the release date.
