Radeon R9 Nano 4GB Game Requirement Analysis
Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.
The Fiji is a Second Generation GCN GPU. It offers support for HBM-1 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Open GL 4.5 and the acclaimed Delta Compression Algorithm which may decrease bandwidth consumption by up to 30%, in most games.
Fiji XT is the Full Variant of the GPU with 64 Compute Units activated, offering 4096 Shader Processing Units, 256 TMUs and 64 ROPs.
The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.
The GPU is equipped with stacked HBM-1 Memory and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 4096-bit memory interface.
Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, and because the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, 4GB might be a bottlenecked and Performance could be better, were the Frame Buffer larger.
With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.
Because the Central Unit's Speed varies from game to game, performance depends heavily on the game being played.
Overall, expect performance similar to GeForce GTX 980 at 1080p and close to Radeon Fury in 1440p and 3K.
Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
