The compact and super compact is effective at home AMD Officially displayed, with higher than expected price tag
According to estimates from the last few weeks, AMD Today officially presents the most efficient video card it has ever created - theRadeon The R9 Nano, which is also the first model based on the innovative Fijian core but not under the Fury brand that the manufacturer of Sunyville brought back to life after a decade and a half of coma.
We already knew most of the technical details about the Nano before launch - this is a card with a full Fiji core that includes 4,096 processing units, like the Fury X and more than the regular Fury, with a base frequency of 1,000MHz and a base frequency of 500MHz for the memory -HBM that will also come here in 4GB capacity. The number of texture and restoration units is also the same as what we got in Fury X (i.e. 256 units and 64 units, respectively), and the maximum theoretical performance should stand at a very impressive 8.19TeraFLOPS, for a card holder Cooling Air that is about 10 inches long.
AMD claims that the Radeon R9 Nano will be able to offer performance that is about 30 percent higher than that of the GeForce GTX 970 in its compact versions (about 18 centimeters long) in 4K resolutions - that is, those that will compete head to head, ostensibly, against a card The competitor's GeForce GTX 980 NVIDIA.
The R9 Nano will be available for sale in the coming weeks, starting on September 10, at a recommended price of $ 650 - and here is the problematic punch line.
New product AMD Is a very impressive purpose display, but with a cost almost the same as that of the Fury X and theGeForce GTX 980 Ti that provide substantially high performance, and a cost that is $ 100-150 higher than theGTX 980 Providing similar capabilities, the R9 Nano seems to be a very niche product that will only be relevant for those who want the most powerful and compact gaming system that can be built - while other consumers will probably prefer a larger package but with upgraded performance, or with a few hundred shekels.
Soon we will give you more details about this incredible piece from home AMD. Until then - we'll be happy to hear what you think.
