AMD Fury Nano Announced

 

AMD have announced the R9 Fury Nano GPU, one of the most interesting GPUs AMD had shown at today's live conference. This GPU will be releasing this summer and will be the most efficient GPU yet, with HBM memory 2x the performance per watt of AMD's Hawaii GPU.

As you can see, this GPU is not particularly long, measuring at the same length as a regular PCIe connection. This is due to AMD's use of HBM memory, allowing memory to take up 95% less space than the equivalent amount of GDDR5. This also allows AMD to have more freedon when it comes to the design of the power circuitry on this small form factor.  

This GPU is smaller than AMD's new Flagship the Fury X GPU, making this GPU one of the most performance dense GPUs ever constructed.

It is expected that the Radeon R9 Nano will be further down the performance leaderboards than the R9 Fury, given the GPU's size and cooling solution. It does feature a very high build quality, with it's soft touch surface and black nickel shroud.

Right now we do not know exactly what lies on the PCB of this card, though it is likely that it could be an underclocked Fury/Fiji GPU core, though right now it is almost impossible to know.  

Remember that AMD say that it is 2x the performance per watt, so this GPU could easily give Hawaii levels of performance with a TDP of 145W, but we expect that the GPU will have more performance than that.

It looks nice, AMD could actually pull it. Good job, let's see how they do now because I really like the full power graphics card in a small package.Quote

The real killer statistic is the price !!!Quote

The price is excellent, in my opinion. If the Fury X can compete with a NON-reference 980ti, it will be the cheaper option. I'm interested to see how the UK/EU pricing is going to be, but if it's the same as nVidia's, the Fury X will be £600. That's high, but still highly competitive when you factor in the price premium for non-reference designs.

Although, for some reason, cards like the G1 Gaming 980ti are only £30 more than the Gigabyte reference 980ti. Is it me or is that out of the ordinary? Is it because the reference design is in such high demand? From what I remember, in the past, a G1 Gaming model would be £50+ easily over the reference design. And the Classified and Hybrid from eVGA are only £50 more than the reference design, which is even weirder. Normally those are extremely high in price and come with a £100 premium over the reference.

Apart from the really bad jokes and awkwardness, I was pleased with the announcement stream. It was quite exciting. I'm glad to see AMD bringing home the goods with confidence. If the leaked benchmarks are anything to go by, AMD are really being competitive and smart.Quote
