The R9 Nano is one of the best reference video cards AMD has ever made, with it being in my opinion a better looking card than the Fury X. The R9 Nano is a tiny card, with a large fan that keeps it 'library quiet' according to AMD.
Starting off with the front of the card, we have a full metal shroud around the card, backed up by a beautiful brushed aluminum finish. AMD has used a matte black PCB which really adds to the look of the card, while we have Radeon branding down the front of the card - which unfortunately, doesn't glow red.
The rear of the card doesn't have much, apart from a bracket that is keeping the entire interposer, GPU, and HBM in place. I would've preferred a back plate to continue the sleek look of the R9 Nano, but unfortunately, we don't get that.
Moving over to the display connectivity on the R9 Nano, AMD has provided 3 x DisplayPort and 1 x HDMI 1.4 (big note: this isn't HDMI 2.0 which is capable of 4K at 60Hz, it's limited to 4K at 30Hz - but more on that later).
At the end of the card, we have a single 8-pin PCIe power connector that powers the Fiji GPU and HBM, using just 175W of power. We can see the elaborate heat sink that AMD has used to keep its Fiji GPU and HBM nice and cool, replacing that huge annoying AIO cooler that the Fury X needs.
