AMD Radeon R9 Nano Overclocking Results

Extra performance with the R9 Nano comes in two distinct areas, overclocking and power management. Interestingly, AMD lets users unlock the power management with a 50 percent increase in the power limit. The extra power headroom increases performance since the R9 Nano no longer has to conform to its strict 175W TDP management and can perform more like the R9 Fury X. In terms of overclocking frequencies, the HBM memory remains locked, like on the R9 Fury and Fury X, but the core can be tweaked. We managed an extra 75MHz from our sample, a modest 7.5 percent increase, and combined with the increased power limit it resulted in a healthy performance gain.
