It has just been revealed by Tweaktown that AMD's R9 Nano GPU can be used in Crossfire with AMD's R9 Fury and Fury X GPUs, an unsurprising feature given the fact that AMD's R9 Nano and Fiji GPUs will be using the same Fiji GPU core.

Right now we do not know what the performance of AMD's R9 Nano is like, but it will no doubt be impressive given this GPUs tiny form factor.

When compared to a R9 290X this GPU will be 16dB quieter, consumes 30% less power, is 40% shorter and a temperatures which are 20 degrees lower. Simply put this is a massive leap for AMD to make in a single generation, let's hope AMD continues to make such strides in the future.

How come that the Fury and the Fury-X have the same theoretical performance according to the table in the article, despite having more GCN GPU cores and a higher core frequency on the Fury-X?Quote

As the Nano has a much lower TDP it will most likely have a much lower real world maximum clock, I'd much rather just get another Fury X to crossfire with.Quote
