Chinese modder creates his own AMD Radeon RX Vega Nano

A couple of years ago, AMD teased the Radeon RX Vega Nano video card during the company's Vega announcement event. This card generated a lot of excitement but it never made it into production. The only working sample was handed to Epic Games' Tim Sweeney and was never seen again.

WCCF Tech now writes that a Chinese modder managed to craft his own, fully-functional Radeon RX Vega Nano card. Over at the ChipHell forums, the modder mentions that it took him six months to create this card and take it as close to the original RX Vega Nano design as possible. Quite an interesting feat!
The modding work done may look very simple but in fact, it requires some effort. The first obstacle in all of it was the PCB and the modder went with the XFX Radeon RX Vega 56 which like the variant from PowerColor and Sapphire, comes with the compact PCB design. The shroud is fully custom-made with a brushed aluminum design as the original variant and several fans were tested, even ASUS's dual-axial but the modder eventually settled for a regular 11 blade airflow fan.
