AMD Fury Nano Performance and Power draw revealed

 

In June AMD announced the R9 Fury Nano GPU, one of the most interesting GPUs AMD had shown at their E3 Live conference. This GPU will reportedly be releasing on August 27th and will be the most efficient GPU we have seen on AMD CPUs yet, with HBM memory 2x the performance per watt of AMD's Hawaii GPU.

As you can see, this GPU is not particularly long, measuring at the same length as a regular PCIe connection. This is due to AMD's use of HBM memory, allowing memory to take up 95% less space than the equivalent amount of GDDR5. This also allows AMD to have more freedon when it comes to the design of the power circuitry on this small form factor.  

This GPU is smaller than AMD's new Flagship the Fury X GPU, making this GPU one of the most performance dense GPUs ever constructed.

It is expected that the Radeon R9 Nano will be further down the performance leaderboards than the R9 Fury, given the GPU's size and cooling solution. It does feature a very high build quality, with it's soft touch surface and black nickel shroud.

Right now we do not know exactly what lies on the PCB of this card, though it is likely that it could be an underclocked Fury/Fiji GPU core, though right now it is almost impossible to know.  

With a TDP of 175W and a promised 95% more Performance/watt than Hawaii, this GPU is going to be more powerful than AMD's last generation flagship the R9 290X, which is highly impressive for GPUs which are one generation apart.

According to AMD's above slide, we can see that this GPU will lie somewhere in between the R9 Fury X and the R9 290X in terms of raw GPU power, but will be much better when it comes to power consumption or Performance per watt. 

The AMD R9 Fury will be 16cm in length and will have a TDP of 175w, making this one of the most performance dense and power efficennt GPUs that we have ever seen. 

Rumors suggest that the AMD R9 Fury Nano will be releasing on August 27th, which is less than one week away.

Now it just needs to beat the GTX 980 and have a decent price tag, and it's a winner. Anyone know if thise card is going to be refence only, like the Fury X?Quote

All that is unknown right now. It should sit between the R9 390X and Fury, so it should be a great GTX 980 Competitor if it is prices well.

the one thing AMD better not do is say, "this is ultra efficient, so we are charging more £££", as that will not work.Quote

There wouldnt really be much point tbh, after all there is little AIBs can do to improve the Gpu. They can beef up the power delivery etc, however then people might as well be getting something like the Fury for its better cooling, as the cooler would likely be operating close to its limits.Quote

Looking forward to the OC3D review Quote

I have a feeling this will be very competitively priced for its market "still loves his Vapor X"Quote
