The R9 Nano - Is AMD's Tiny Flagship Still Worth It?

The AMD Radeon R9 Nano is truly an interesting graphics card. Once a high end $649 flagship, it now makes the odd appearance on online auction sites where it still fetches decent amounts of money. Performance wise it sits between the GTX 980, RX 580 and GTX 1060,
so is it the ideal card for you if you're shopping around at this price point?

Thanks for watching :)

    Runs very hot, rare and very power inefficient and likely to run into driver issues with new games. There's no reason to buy this card over a 1060.

  • Divinitas Silberwald

    The "Normal Fury"dose not got 4096 SPs


    the r9 nano is better than the rx 580 by 2 percent

  • Sam W

    u should run shadow of mordor at high at 1440p theres no difference unless you use the ultra resolution texture pack at 4k. apart from the reduced frame rates.

  • M P

    I managed to pick one up off eBay for £175, performance is great at that price.


    the memory limit is a problem now even at 1080p

  • Jonathan Robinson

    Fury cards make quite a bit of coil whine, btw.

  • Stephen Arseneau

    I always wanted a R9 Nano. Could never find one for a decent price.

  • BasilDonovan

    In my country we have 2 of them for sale going for around 200€ or 180£ respectively.

  • Jaggsta

    £200 is $262 USD you can get GTX 1070 off ebay for that price lol

  • Minezone 2025

    I own a computer with an Intel core i74770 and gtx 1060 6gb and this card is equal too if not slightly worse by one or two fps. Very similar

  • Darko Bakula

    Nano was the perfect card for me. I love it being so small and compact, yet so powerful.

  • Facelord

    I was able to get this thing for $210 on eBay, thank gawd. It's a wonderful card, seems to perform between my father's RX 580 and my now-deceased Vega 64 did. Only problems are the coil whine(it's a bit of a nuisance) and the fact that it only has 4GB of VRAM. Not a big deal, overall a spectacular card.

  • Blockish

    Watching this in very early 2019 and theyre pretty common in the US for around 225$-250$ on eBay

  • Ambrose Killpack

    was the amd r9 nano not one of amd's fastest cards ever?

  • Jack Kaminsky

    i saw an r9 nano for roughly £90 somewhere, 100% going to pick it up now

  • oh yeah

    pokimane got shotgunned at 1:36

  • Random Guy

    Got it for 300€ new... Paired it with a 4790k on a Asus Rog Impact board...

  • Sm00th GAMES

    can you make a video about amd's old server cpus? the opteron

  • Michael Müller

    you should try and undervolt it, for a higher boostclock.

  • foufou81

    I own 36 cards. Sensitive over their PCI Express power supply but amazing cards !

  • MattVon Scruger

    Should i buy a 1050ti or rx470-480

  • Hyperion98

    I was able to get a brand new one unopened for $400 Canadian Ruppies last March. Quite a feat if your consider the market was drowned in inflated gpu prices.

  • b real

    Only reason I never got the fury was due to the 4gb HBM..

  • OstrAdamus

    Hi, RGHD if You still have this card, can You test power consumption with and without vsync 60fps ? i am considering this card vs 1060 6gb for 1080p 60Hz.

  • Shooty Dude

    i found one thats going for 200 canadian dollars on facebook,im gonna get it shipped :P

  • Honey Glaze Ham

    I'm loving my R9 290x, Beast on ARK. nearly max settings and I still get almost 68 FPS regularly.

  • IlK7

    0:36 Is this an Intel box cooler?

  • jan409

    why make a "still worth it" video if you can't even get your hands on it under normal circumstances?

  • SharpShot

    Why are tech youtubers so bad at games

  • el imortal

    Better than an xbox one

  • madjimms

    Your i7 4770 is definitely a bottleneck on CPU intense games. Hell, my 6600K is restricting me plenty of the time at 1080p

  • Cry

    Found one of these for 250$ last year in the middle of the crypto craze, amazing pickup at the time ;) and threw it into a console itx build for a friend, from my own tests it does indeed have 1060 level performance. BUT! the damn coil whine on these things is seriously loud, you better not be recording around it and headphones are a must the harder you push the card, thats not even talking about the fan.

  • J P

    Why get a second hand card when you can get a brand new 1060??

  • Ezzbra

    2:01 he turned into a frog for a second there xD

  • Flavia Pitariu

    I really want to grab a 295x2 as I have a PSU that can cope plus, it'll be a real upgrade to my crossfire 6970

  • Landen Nipper

    The r9 fury that comes with water cooling is awesome

  • dogbird

    definitely bottle necked by the 4770, i have basically this setup so i would know.

  • molenini

    Fury Nano is certainly a beast of a card. It's higher tier than 1060 and 580.

  • Croix Tucker

    Just buy a 1070, all the used prices are down to a reasonable price now

  • Paul Frederick

    Some people have a lot of cash to piss away on PC hardware.

  • nibruhh

    I have one crossfired with a R9 Fury X

  • Stefano_pena

    The card is like 220 now

  • Angry Gamer

    Nothing from AMD in the flahship is worth it since 9700. What a POS second fiddle company for poor people.

  • Valra Bellkeys

    The fury always interested me on how quickly it was forgotten. Everyone was talking about it for months prior to its release, and then when that happened was a wave reviews.. than after that, everyone stopped talking about it, forgotten.

  • adam

    its basically a mini gtx 980?

  • real names not given

    Do you have any advice on reviving an old potato computer. Currently tinkering with a few old builds

  • Frank Degan

    Still the best channel for people who like to tinker or cant outright afford the latest but yesterdays greatest is still viable for todays games
