RADEON --
The AMD Radeon R9 Nano was officially announced this morning by AMD and will go on sale in early September at $650 USD.

Yesterday's Details Emerge On The AMD Radeon R9 Nano: Eventually Should Be Nice For Linux Gamers article covered all of the technical details and was accurate. However, the rumor of the card going for $500~550 was far from correct -- AMD is going to sell this small, Fiji graphics card for $650!


The R9 Nano will carry the same price as the water-cooled Radeon R9 Fury X but instead its much smaller, air-cooled, and has a 175 Watt max power draw. While many like the size of this card for small form factor builds, it will be quite hefty to justify the cost with the troubled Catalyst Linux driver and the open-source stack still being months away from being mature for Fiji. See yesterday's article for my Linux driver comments about Fiji.
