AMD Radeon R9 Nano spotted in an MSI motherboard

AMD's Fiji-based, HBM-powered Radeon R9 Nano gets caught on camera

When AMD flew us out to their event in Sydney, Australia, one of the more exciting video cards that we got our hands on was the super-small Radeon R9 Nano.




The Radeon R9 Nano is based on the same Fiji architecture that both the R9 Fury X and R9 Fury are based on, it also contains High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) but it is super, super small. Well, now Flikr user 'Elmy' has the card, and according to Guru3D 'Elmy' is really Anthony Lackey. Lackey has done extensive promotional work for AMD, so we're sure to be looking at a genuine card here folks.


As you can see, the new Radeon R9 Nano is plugged into MSI's new X99A GODLIKE GAMING motherboard, and barely spills over the edge of the x16 PCIe connector. Insanely small, and it's said to pack the power of the Radeon R9 290X with similar power numbers, too. We should have a sample on its way shortly, so expect a few from us in the coming weeks.
