Bring home a frosty Winter White AMD R9 Nano for the holidays

While the standard R9 Nano was an impressive feat of engineering, since its release everyone has been wondering when they’d be able to get their hands on a version of the card in frosty white.

OK, maybe not, but you still have to admit that the Winter White edition of AMD’s bite-sized, high-performance GPU would look really flossy in small build. It’s particularly relevant for the R9 Nano, which is a card that encourages system builders to take another look at what a gaming computer needs in terms of space and power overhead.

It still boasts the same specs as the reference R9 Nano, with 4GB of High-Bandwidth Memory using AMD’s new die stacking process, and a clock speed of up to 1000 MHz. As with the cut-down version of the Fury X, air cooling replaces the built-in radiator on the larger card. In our benchmarks, the R9 Nano didn’t quite match the performance of the Nvidia price competitor, the 980 Ti, but still offered up great performance, especially considering its size.

The custom-printed PCB on the Nano is already black, and since these are preliminary shots, it’s entirely possible the Winter White edition will eventually have a white PCB to match.

AMD wants to see the Nano find its way into new and unique builds and case mods, and offering it in another color is a great way to make sure that anyone who wants to find a home for one has the most options available. At $650, it’s still an expensive option, but there’s nothing in its size that even compares when it comes to performance.

No official word on when you’ll actually be able to get your hands on one of the clean white Nanos, but there should be more details available come November, according to Computer Base. Hopefully it will be ready in time for the holidays, a Nano would make a pretty great stocking stuffer.
