The Radeon R9 Nano is the fruition of AMD's gamble of integrating stacked high-bandwidth memory (HBM) and a 4,096 SP pixel-grinder into a compact multi-chip module that eliminates the need for external memory chips, freeing up large swathes of PCB area. This, in addition to HBM being more energy-efficient than GDDR5, enabled AMD to design the impossibly compact Radeon R9 Nano that can run anything at 1440p and doesn't shy away from 4K Ultra HD. The card draws power from just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector and has a typical board power rated at just 175W, making for a cracker of a proposition.
AMD is placing this card as a "co-flagship" entry into its product-stack, right up with the Radeon R9 Fury X. The two products share the $649 price-tag. Think of this as AMD's attempt at a halo product akin to NVIDIA's GTX TITAN family because NVIDIA has absolutely no answer to this product.
