How well can the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2019 popular games. This short Radeon R9 Nano 4GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 705 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Looking at some of the modern popular games people are playing today the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is predicted to run Diablo 4 with playable performances on 1080p Ultra, getting 31 frames per second. Comparing this to Red Dead Redemption 2 which is getting reasonable results, where it averages 51 FPS. Another popular game we looked at is Death Stranding, which is predicted to run at 31 frames per second.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We predict the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB will run the upcoming game Diablo 4 to a weak performance level. Predictions across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 61 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 33 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. Another game tested was Red Dead Redemption 2, L: 103FPS, M: 81FPS, H: 54FPS, U: 39FPS. And then we researched potential graphics card performance on Death Stranding, wih estimates revealing L: 61FPS, M: 48FPS, H: 33FPS, U: 23FPS at 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is a reasonable performance fit for this resolution. Some of the more resource intensive games may well need a few graphical tweak to get the most out of the graphics card at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this Radeon R9 Nano 4GB

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB? If you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 29% better and can run 895 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which is 39% more powerful and can run 961 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon R9 Nano 4GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 Nano 4GB is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the Third Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


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.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1000MHz.


Memory: Speed
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.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 175W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 8-pin connector.


Performance
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.


System Suggestions
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.

If you plan to build a m-Itx system than this card is for you, but if not, then i would recommend a Fury X or 980 Ti. Same Price, better performance.
