The R9 Nano graphics card will offer 60 percent more bandwidth than GDDR5 and will be just 6 inches in length.

AMD made headlines in the past with its Mantle API and FreeSync technologies. Unfortunately, both advancements have been almost forgotten now that DirectX 12 and G-Sync have picked up tremendous amounts of hype and followers alike.

The R9 Nano is AMD's latest attempt to grab back media attention and system builder CybertronPC will be one of the first to sell systems equipped with the GPU. The R9 Nano is just six inches in length compared to 10.5 inches of a reference GTX 980, yet the GPU will support DirectX 12, Eyefinity, FreeSync, OpenGL 4.5, and HBM with a 4096-bit memory interface. The reseller promises twice the performance density and twice the performance-per-watt compared to a standard size desktop GPU.

CybertronPC plans to begin shipping custom-built PCs with the R9 Nano as soon as AMD launches its new GPU series. We should be hearing much more about the R9 Nano and its implications this week and throughout IFA 2015.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
