    Re: AMD R9 Nano specs revealed and digested

    Well if that price is correct this is an epic flop. As I mentioned on the other thread, very few desirable mini itx cases need such a card. I hardly think this card is going to trouble nvidia over that 80% market share...

    Would be great in a SG13, the short form factor would allow the use of a 140mm intake fan for extra airflow, with a standard 10.5" card you are limited to a 120mm fan and things get quite toasty.

    I have read elsewhere that apparently it is going to land in at the $650 / $675 price point so crazy prices that normal people with families just can't afford!

    Re: AMD R9 Nano specs revealed and digested

    The positioning of this card in their line up is utterly baffling. I can only assume it turned out better than they were expecting and have basically decided to null and void the Fury X,and make the Nano their premier GPU in all but name only.

    95% of the performance, 100w less TDP and with no expensive water cooler, must be much more profitable for them.

    According to AMD the card should generally sustain clockspeeds around 900MHZ and boost in less intensive times to around 1GHZ. So the,Fury X should be around 10% to 15% faster overall,so it will be close to an R9 Fury but in a mini-ITX form factor.

    Looking at the latest TPU figures in their GTX950 reviews,it should place it overall faster than a GTX980 it appears:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/M...Gaming/30.html

    However,I think AMD should have priced this closer to £400ish,or not more than £450 at the most,and thats taking into account the smaller form factor when compared to the GTX980 and the "newness" tax.

    Having said that it is one of the few graphics cards I have been excited about for a few years,the other being the mini-ITX GTX970. Shame its way above what I would be willing to spend.

    For sure. I wanted one in my RVZ01 so i could add an extra 3.5" hdd but i don't care to even think about buying it at that price...

    I would so love one in my Cubitek Mini Cube case too,but I could never justify that kind of price. Its why I was so dissapointed with Tonga - Fury is bascially the same uarch but with HBM and more power saving options integrated. If AMD could have actually launched a fully enabled Tonga rejigged with the newer power saving technology from Fiji in a smaller form factor it would have probably been a decent seller.

    Re: AMD R9 Nano specs revealed and digested

    TBH I think the price is only slightly to high, this isnt a 970 this is a 980ti competitor in a small form factor, for me it should have been £40 - £50 less than a Fury x as its not watercooled but thats it.

    Looks like it, although according to other sites it will be $650 "around the same price as Fury X and 980Ti".....which means anywhere between 450-550ukp I guess.

    Re: AMD R9 Nano specs revealed and digested

    Board partners should just take this nano, whack a whopping big cooler on it and then it becomes an air cooled Fury X. The fury pro will disappear and reduce the fragmentation in this odd Fury line up

    I was just wondering the same thing. Reread the article several times and still haven't found any indication of price. Not that I believe it'll be cheap.

    IIRC at the E3 thing the price was $500. Not sure what that is in real money.
