With AMD's Fury lineup not living up to expectations, all eyes are now on the Radeon R9 Nano. This compact 6-inch long card is based on the same GPU as the Fury X but with lower clockspeeds to fit inside a 175W TDP.
Intended for compact gaming systems and HTPCs, the Radeon R9 Nano promises performance in excess of the old Radeon R9 290X, while offering 90 percent higher performance/Watt than the R9 290X and 50 percent better performance/Watt than the Fury X.
The launch date is still somewhat of a mystery but it's believed to be very close. VideoCardz came across an August 27th launch date while TechPowerUp talks about a late-August/early-September launch schedule.
The biggest mystery of all remains the pricing, and we really feel the price tag is either going to make or break this card.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano launch is imminent
