Vega GPU for mITX builds 

In addition to a fleet of RX Vega graphics cards and the Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, AMD has also briefly unveiled the mini-ITX RX Vega Nano graphics card at its Capsaicin event at the Siggraph 2017 show.

Handed to Tim Sweeney, founder of Epic Games and Unreal Engine by non other than the senior vice president of AMD's RTG division, Raja Koduri, the RX Vega Nano, as pictured over at, should be a worthy successor to a popular R9 Nano graphics card based on AMD's Fiji GPU.

Featuring the same silver aluminum shroud as the RX Vega 64 Limited Edition, but on a much shorter PCB with dual-slot design, the RX Vega Nano apparently has the same display output configuration, with three DisplayPort and single HDMI port and uses a single, center-placed fan. It also needs a single 8-pin PCIe power connector with a typical board power of 150W, at least according to pictures and information provided by site, which had a chance to snap a few pictures. 

Unfortunately, it is still not clear if the RX Vega Nano will pack 64 next-gen Compute Units (CUs) for a total of 4096 Stream Processors, like the RX Vega 64, or AMD has had to cut it down and this will be a Radeon RX Vega 56, with 56 CUs and 3584 Stream Processors, packed in a smaller form factor. On the other hand, it should still pack 8GB of HBM2 memory and we guess it could fit somewhere between the US $399 priced RX Vega 56 and the US $499 priced RX Vega 64. 

Of course, we do not expect the RX Vega Nano to launch in August with the rest of the RX Vega lineup, but it should come eventually, probably in September, when AMD AIB partners start launching their own custom versions.
