AMD drops the Radeon Nano to $499

AnandTech has the details via an AMD press release, but basically it’s just like the title says. AMD has officially dropped the MSRP of the Radeon Nano from $649 to $499. This is very welcome news for us SFF builders because the Nano is an extremely interesting product for compact builds, especially in cases that require the use of short GPUs. Formerly the Nano commanded a hefty premium relative to its performance but was perhaps justified by the very short length and high power efficiency (though there’s some odd stuff happening with the power management that trips up external AC-DC adapters).

The change is effectively immediately but a quick spot-check of pricing online shows no change yet.
