3. Final words
Despite the small amount of benchmarks, it looks like AMD deserves some serious props for even creating the Radeon R9 Nano.
This pint-sized powerhouse is based on revolutionarily tiny - and fast - high-bandwidth memory to deliver flagship-level performance in a form factor that fits where most other graphics cards simply can’t.
The card games ran like a champ, while it stays cool and relatively quiet. AMD said the Nano would outpunch the older Radeon 290X flagship while using drastically less power, and it seems that the company was right.
It also outperforms the GeForce GTX 970, the most powerful mITX graphics card in Nvidia’s arsenal.
On the other hand, pushing the PC ecosystem forward isn’t possible without some growing pains. The $650 Radeon Nano rocks, but its price will shock most of you so it won’t appeal to everybody.
