AMD Updates the Price of the Fury Nano to $499

The Nano was quite an interesting release from AMD. The small form factor and power efficiency made it a great fit for mini-ITX systems, but the performance was surprisingly close to the full-fledged Fury X cards. It’s a hard card to beat when compared to other small cards, but the price was still at a premium side. Now the price is not only much better for the Nano, but it’s at a very competitive point for other full sized cards as well. AMD just announced that the Nano will dropped to $499 and that’s a great price for this card. It puts it at a very competitive point with the GTX 980┬ábut the 980 isn’t going to easily fit in a small system. This is an interesting move from AMD but I have to admit, I think consumers are going to eat this one up. Check out the AMD link below for more details on the R9 series and there’s a Newegg link so you can easily keep track of when those prices hit the retail space. http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/r9 http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&IsNodeId=1&N=100007709%20600566293



The AMD R9 Fury Series Launch Deck

After what seems like a long wait, AMD has finally released the full official slides for the Fury line-up of graphic cards. Everything looks great and team RED seems pretty proud of what they’ve accomplished with the Fiji architecture. Without further ado, here’s the Fury slides! Fiji is the new architecture for all the Fury cards, and it looks like it’s doing some good things for power and efficiency.   Of course, HBM is the big deal here. Take a closer look at how the new technology works.   The end result of this new architecture and memory is a die size that is significantly smaller than before.   The liquid cooling design isn’t just for handling heat. The operating temperature is actually pretty low, and the power design on the card has overclockers in mind. The concept is to give the card as much power as two 8 pin connectors can handle so that there is plenty of headroom to play with.   AMD also added some nice lighting effects to the R9 Fury X with a light up logo, as well as status indicators.   Performance is entirely aimed at a smooth 4k experience. Average and minimum FPS look great for 4k ultra settings on Far Cry 4.   The Fury X isn’t the only card with Fiji. The R9 Fury will come with a cut down and air cooled die, but the R9 Fury Nano offers a very low power threshold as well as an extremely small profile. Mini-ITX builders will probably love these.   AMD also couldn’t resist throwing tw...
