AMD revealed a great many things at their Computex 2018 press conference, but the only announced product that will actually ship with immediate effect is the Radeon RX Vega 56 nano. Let’s hear from Scott Herkelman about this new graphics card, and check out the actual Vega 56 nano card, as well as its key specifications!
Scoot Herkelman On The Radeon RX Vega 56 nano
Here is the segment where Scott Herkelman reveals the Radeon RX Vega 56 nano graphics card, which was created and sold by PowerColor.
Basically, the PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 56 nano is a small version of the regular Radeon RX Vega 56, designed specifically for mini-ITX systems. Other than its much smaller size, it has 6-pin + 8-pin power connectors, instead of dual 8-pin power connectors.
Everything else, from its performance characteristics and power consumption appears to be the same as a regular Radeon RX Vega 56 graphics card.
