Report Suggests AMD to Launch R9 Nano on August 27th




/ 5 years ago

AMD Radeon R9 Fury Nano Fiji GPU

Small form factor fans should block off some time on August 27th because AMD is set to launch their R9 Nano on that day. We’ve long known that the R9 Nano would arrive before September so August 27th next week isn’t too much of a surprise. The biggest question is whether or not supply will turn the hard launch into a paper one.

Being such a tiny card, SFF aficionados will be sure to love it given that it will probably offer GTX 980 level performance in an efficient and tiny package. At only 175W, the Nano should offer 2x the power efficiency of the R9 290X, making it one of the most efficient cards AMD has in their lineup; this is what allows AMD to pack a full Fiji die under such a tiny cooler.

Hopes are high for the card and hopefully the supply situation will be better than its other siblings which have been severely supply constrained. AMD needs this card to perform and sell well if they are to hope to regain some marketshare. No word has been released about pricing, but it should fall near the R9 Fury given that the Fiji die and the HBM don’t come free. Hopefully, the card will deliver on the high expectations many are holding.
