AMD Dual-GPU "Fiji" Graphics Card PCB Pictured

Here is the first reasonably detailed PCB shot of the dual-GPU graphics card based on "Fiji," which AMD announced at its E3 conference. The card is an inch taller than standard, but surprisingly short, for a dual-GPU board. This is thanks to the memory being relocated to the GPU package. All that's left on the PCB, besides the two GPUs, are the PLX PEX8747 PCI-Express gen 3.0 x48 bridge chip, and the 12-phase VRM, which draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include one HDMI 2.0, and three DisplayPort 1.2a connectors.

AMD announced significant energy efficiency gains for "Fiji" over "Hawaii," and so this card could have a much lower than expected power-draw. The reference board could come with AIO liquid-cooling, much like the single-GPU Radeon R9 Fury X, some AIBs could even release cards with air-cooling solutions. The yet unnamed dual-GPU "Fiji" based graphics card could be available in Autumn 2015.

A few days ago I was thinking... "man, I'd buy a cheap, smaller version of the Fury." Then I saw the Nano today.

Fucking awesome.

That's actually possible now. With a PCB the size of an R9 295X2, you could cram 3-4 Fijis, and take an ITX build using said card, with Dell's 5K monitor to a LAN. The tip of your e-penis will be in orbit.

That looks like there is a ton of bandwidth to be available between these two GPUs. That could help with DirectX 12 and its Split Frame Rendering alot.

The Nano just may replace my R9 290X when it comes out. Less heat and a little boost? Fuck yeah!

Looks very good. Lets hope cooling solution and performance are equally impressive. :)

If it sells at roughly 1000 eur mark very tempting although I usually prefer NVIDIA parts. Potentially the massive bandwidth and location next to each other will help reducing microstuttering and other crossfire issues even further making this even sweeter deal.
