AMD details Radeon R9 Nano tech specs

A slide by AMD, which we consider to be unofficial, has detailed the tech specs of the upcoming Radeon R9 Nano video card, which is expected this week. The good news is that it seems the Radeon R9 Nano will not have cut-down tech specs when compared to the Radeon R9 Fury X – in fact the new AMD product will be even better than the Radeon R9 Fury video card.

The new AMD video card will have 4096 stream processors in the GPU, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs as well as 4 GB of HBM memory that will be served by the ultra-wide 4096-bit memory bus that we first saw in the Radeon R9 Fury X. The GPU of the Radeon R9 Nano will also run at clock speeds up to 1000 MHz, while the installed memory will run at 500 MHz, providing 512 GB/sec of memory bandwidth. Yet at the same time the Radeon R9 Nano will not beat the Radeon R9 Fury X due to a simple reason – the TDP of the card is limited to 175 watts, which means the GPU will run at less than 1000 MHz (the exact clock speed is unknown) and in addition to this AMD may also implement an aggressive clock speed throttle system based on the power consumed and the temperature generated. The Radeon R9 Nano also has a 4+2 VRM phase, down from the 6+2 VRM system featured in the Radeon R9 Fury X, which again hints at the lower power consumption of the R9 Nano.

The Radeon R9 Nano will likely be a huge hit thanks to the excellent combination of small size, high performance and low power consumption. The card is expected to be as fast as the GeForce GTX 980, faster than the Radeon R9 390X and just a little slower than the Radeon R9 Fury X. The Radeon R9 Nano will debut later this week.
