R9 Nano with i7-4790K benchmarks at Ultra Quality settings

At 1440p, R9 Nano can hit 50-60 fps on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Deciding whether to invest so much money in a high-end GPU like R9 Nano requires careful thought. With current 4096 MB RAM, the R9 Nano can have very few memory-related bottlenecks in more modern games.

Critics Reviews

The AMD Radeon R9 Nano shows that you don’t always have to be the fastest to win the race. Some races are more of a marathon, and it’s more important to pace yourself well. MORE: Best Graphics ...
The Radeon R9 Nano is the fruition of AMD's gamble of integrating stacked high-bandwidth memory (HBM) and a 4,096 SP pixel-grinder into a compact multi-chip module that eliminates the need for external memory chips, freeing up large swathes of PCB area.
The new Radeon R9 Nano is the little brother to the existing AMD Radeon R9 Fury cards – in water-cooled 'X' and air-cooled standard models – and deserves that distinction in more ways than one.
AMD seems to have hit all the cues it set out to with the Radeon R9 Nano. This card is ridiculously tiny in light of other high-end GPUs, its power consumption characteristics are significantly ...
AMD's R9 Nano is a graphics card that serves its (very) niche high-end small form factor market well but its premium pricing makes it unaffordable to many small form factor system builders, and ...
AMD's R9 Nano is a hell of a little graphics card, delivering near-R9 Fury X performance in a compact mini-ITX form-factor. It's also expensive—very expensive—at 0, matching the price of ...
The AMD Radeon R9 Fury Nano is one of the most exciting graphics cards I’ve seen for years and, at only 6in long, it’s also one of the smallest. ... Verdict. AMD’s latest card is one of its ...
While AMD is pegging the Radeon R9 Nano as a luxury card, a component that isn't meant to be about value for money, rather it's all about getting the maximum performance for a small form factor PC ...
With the Radeon R9 Nano at the heart of our test rig, it consumed over 90 fewer watts than the Fury X--AMD's specified power ratings are in-line with our testing.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano Overclocking Results Extra performance with the R9 Nano comes in two distinct areas, overclocking and power management. Interestingly, AMD lets users unlock the power management ...
The R9 Nano is stunningly powerful given its Mini-ITX-friendly form factor, and a true leap ahead for AMD. Just know that this is a specialized component meant for very tight, compact PCs, and ...
As it turns out, AMD's Radeon R9 Nano is a great piece of hardware; there's really nothing like it out there. That’s probably why AMD is setting its price at an eye-popping 9. A lack of ...
The Radeon R9 Nano is AMD's solution for all small-form-factor system builders that want to create a 4K-capable gaming PC in a tiny volume. Thanks to a new approach to power management, the card stays below 200 W at all times, while still delivering excellent framerates.
AMD Radeon R9 Nano - the Digital Foundry verdict The R9 Nano packs an unprecedented amount of rendering power into an absolutely tiny product, and possesses superb build quality.
AMD deserves some serious props for even creating the Radeon R9 Nano in the first place. This pint-sized powerhouse is the latest in a long line of AMD technical innovations that skate to where ...
We’ll have a full suite of Radeon R9 Nano benchmarks recorded in our ultra-high-end graphics test-bed, along with comparison numbers from an array of other high-end GPUs, a little later.
AMD’s itty-bitty Radeon R9 Nano isn’t due to launch until September 10, but a review unit landed on my doorstep today. Sadly, I can’t talk about its performance until then, but an AMD ...
The Radeon R9 Nano is a high-end graphics card by AMD, launched in August 2015. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the Fiji graphics processor, in its Fiji XT CA variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0.
The AMD Radeon R9 Nano finished just behind the Radeon R9 Fury here, but well ahead of the R9 390 or similarly-sized GeForce GTX 970 mini (the Asus GeForce GTX 970 Direct-CU mini to be exact).
As it turns out, AMD's Radeon R9 Nano is a great piece of hardware; there's really nothing like it out there. That’s probably why AMD is setting its price at an eye-popping 9.
Meanwhile at the other end of the spectrum is the Radeon R9 Nano, which sees AMD push the limits on miniaturization and pack Fiji into a card just 6 inches long.
