We have not heard a whole lot about AMD’s Zen architecture in a while. We do know that it will have a 40% IPC increase over the Excavator core. New details tell us that the Zen CPU micro-architecture will focus on significantly increasing the per-core performance, and more particularly the per-core number crunching performance.

We have been talking about it all week and now it is finally here! AMD has officially announced the Radeon R9 Nano Graphics Card! So let’s just get right to it with the specifications of the card. The Radeon R9 Nano comes with a fully-configured Fiji GPU with 4096 stream processors, 64 ROPs, 256 TMUs, and 64 compute units. The card comes with 4GB of HBM memory directly on the GPU itself. The GPU clock can boost up to 1000 MHz and the memory is locked at 500 MHz / 1.0 Gbps for up to 512GB/s bandwidth.
It is a day before the release of the AMD Radeon R9 Nano and more information has been released on the card. We now know that it features the full 4096 stream processors as its more powerful brother the Fury X. That is quite impressive as the TDP of the card is only 175W. We now know that the R9 Nano has better performance than the R9 390X, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 970, and quite possibly the GTX 980. Since this is a compact card AMD decided to compare it against the GeForce GTX 970 Mini-ITX card. The result was that it was 30% faster!
As expected AMD will be launching their compact Radeon R9 Nano this Thursday August 27th 2015. We can now confirm that. Reviews of the card and availability should come about a week later. At least to start the product will only be available in its reference design.
AMD’s Radeon R9 Nano is expected to launch very soon, maybe even this week! This card is based on AMD’s Fiji silicon and has had quite a lot of hype since it was first announced. At the company’s most recent “Hot Chips” presentation AMD released for interesting numbers related to the card.
