Apart from this GPUs aesthetic changes this GPU will be identical to AMD’s reference R9 Nano GPU, delivering an amazing amount of GPU horsepower for this GPUs size and TDP.

Right now it is unknown when ASUS’ white R9 Nano GPU will be released, though the idea of buying this GPU for a “white christmas” PC build does sound appealing. 

Sadly we have not seen the rear of this GPU, so it may be coming with a black PCB, but would still be an epic looking an performing GPU regardless.
