AMD just emailed Legit Reviews and confirmed that the AMD Radeon R9 Nano graphics card is getting a significant price cut. The card is having its price slashed from an MSRP of $649 to $499. That is a massive 23% price cut and it is effective immediately, says AMD. We took a quick look at Newegg and the lowest price we could find was $589 after a $20 rebate for the PowerColor Radeon R9 Nano AXR9. If online retailers slash prices and keep the current rebates in place that would even sweeten the price drop. Be sure to check out our original review on the AMD Radeon R9 Nano that we published when the card came out in September 2015 and you can read the official price cut statement from AMD below!
This past September, the AMD Radeon R9 Nano graphics card launched to rave reviews, claiming the title of the world’s fastest and most power efficient Mini ITX gaming card, powered by the world’s most advanced and innovative GPU with on-chip High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) for incredible 4K gaming performance. There was nothing like it ever seen before, and today it remains in a class of its own delivering smooth, true-to-life, premium 4K and VR gaming in a small form factor PC.
At a peak power of 175W and in a 6-inch form factor, it drives levels of performance that are on par with larger, more power-hungry GPUs from competitors, and blows away Mini ITX competitors with up to 30 percent better performance than the GTX 970 Mini ITX.
Today, Monday, January 11th, this small card will have an even bigger impact on gamers around the world as AMD announces a change in the AMD Radeon R9 Nano graphics card’s SEP from $649 to $499. At the new price, the AMD Radeon R9 Nano graphics card will be more accessible than ever before, delivering incredible performance and leading technologies, with unbelievable efficiency in an astoundingly small form factor that makes it a class of its own.
The AMD Radeon R9 Nano features a full size Fiji XT die with a 1GHz clock speed, 4GB of HBM memory and a 175W TDP. Will the price cut make you reconsider this card?
