AMD Unveils Radeon RX Vega 56 Nano Graphics Card

AMD did announce a new graphics card at Computex 2018, although not really that new. They unveiled the Radeon RX Vega Nano, which is the successor to the high-end small form factor card the Radeon R9 Nano. This card was actually brought to life thanks to AMD add-in board partner PowerColor.

The card is slightly longer than the Radeon R9 Nano (just under 5 mm), but the cooler adds even more length to the card. The card is cooled by a single 80 mm fan that sits atop of heatsink stack. A pretty plain black shroud surrounds most of the cooler.

The card does have “RX Vega 56” branding and not “RX Vega Nano” branding so we do think that it will be just as fast as a normal Radeon RX 56 at stock speeds. It draws power from a combination of an 8-pin + 6-pin PCIe power connections. Display outputs on the card include 3x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1x HDMI 2.0. PowerColors says the MSRP of the card will be $449.
