Default The R9 Nano Performance Review Comment Thread

They say good things come in small packages and in the high end GPU world, nothing is smaller than AMD's R9 Nano. But does it design sacrifice performance or a compact size?

Read more here: The AMD R9 Nano Review

What are your thoughts? This should be interesting.....

Pretty much what I was expecting including the OC, but minus the coil whine which was absolutely unacceptable for what this card is intended for and it's price point.

Yeah. I REALLY wanted to add this to an SFF build I am working on but the inductor noise stopped me cold.

It would price the same as the Fury X no doubt. It's $650 USD.

As I said the the review: $650USD and I even included a Canadian equivalent this time ~$1000 *golf clap*

AMD promised a hard launch. Hence the delay from August for reviews.

If you were building a media center for a 1080p tv this would be a great card. Not very convincing at 4k though.

Thanks for the review!
Still is a lot of power for that form factor but I couldn't deal with that coil whine though, no way.
