    Radeon R9 Nano Small Form Factor Video Card Review

    It looks like [H]ardOCP has finally posted their AMD R9 Nano review. If you remember recently they were denied a review sample along with some other well known websites at release by AMD. Lets see what they finally have to say after putting a couple R9 Nano cards through it paces.

    his evaluation will compare the new retail purchased Radeon R9 Nano with a GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 N970-IX-OC small form factor video card in a mini-ITX Cooler Master Elite 110 Intel Skylake system build. We will find out if the higher priced Nano is worth the money for a 1440p and 1080p gameplay experience in a tiny footprint.

    At the beginning of the summer, AMD announced two different video card lines moving forward for this year. The first model of GPUs relied on a re-brand of what we already had in the marketplace. This was the AMD Radeon R9 300 series. At the same time, AMD also announced a brand new GPU and model name of video cards called the AMD Radeon R9 Fury series. The AMD Radeon R9 Fury series would be based on the new AMD "Fiji" code-named GPU using the latest technology. This series of video cards would not be a re-brand, but a new breed of video cards that would offer a higher level of gameplay performance.

    At the top-end of this new line of video cards is the AMD Radeon R9 Fury X utilizing a full Fiji GPU and closed loop liquid cooling solution for $649. Moving down we find an air cooled AMD Radeon R9 Fury for $549. To fill the gap AMD held up another Radeon R9 Fiji based video card at its launch event, this time being called the AMD Radeon R9 Nano.

    They write like 8th graders, not journalists. Anyway, I'm glad they gave it a good score.


      Great review. Nano was actually tested in a case it was meant for and it came out shining. Some great work AMD did with the Nano.
