While we thought that the RX 6500 would be AMD’s graphics cards with RDNA 2 architecture with the lowest specifications, it turns out that we will see AMD RX 6400 graphics cards appear on the market. the dedicated GPU, and therefore, apart from the processor, the least powerful of the current generation of Radeon.
We will not deceive you, indeed the AMD RX 6400 have already existed for months, but these are not intended for the manufacture of graphics cards that you can buy separately to mount your computer. Until now, AMD provided the graphics chip to manufacturers or assemblers of graphics cards to be included in pre-built computers.
Well, it looks like that’s going to change and soon we’ll have the option to buy an AMD RX 6400 as our graphics card in stores. Of course, due to its power level, it won’t be for gaming, since the models at a higher level in terms of specifications, the RX 6500 XT, have shown to be very fair in terms of power to move games and have been a huge disappointment for the tightest budget PC gamers. There is therefore no doubt that it is surprising that Lisa Su releases a dedicated graphics card with specifications very close to hers integrated.
When will the AMD RX 6400 be released and what specs will it have?
Information about the existence of AMD RX 6400 graphics cards that can be purchased separately comes from a South Korean certification document for the sale of a GIGABYTE model. More precisely the Model GV-R64EAGLE-4GD
Since it will be based on the same graphics chip as the RX 6500 (XT), different manufacturers will be able to quickly deploy the same card taking advantage of the same components. The difference would lie in the technical specifications, since only has 12 compute units active instead of 16 and with it 12 MB of Infinity Cache
Interestingly, its configuration is low enough to tie with the RX 680M, the integrated graphics card of the Ryzen 6000. Although with the advantages that this implies, it is not limited in TDP and having its own memory. In any case, this seems to be a graphics card designed for those who have an Intel or AMD processor without an integrated graphics card and need it for basic tasks.
It is more than clear that the gaming market will have no interest in it and the potential launch of a Ryzen 6000G for socket AM4 could conflict with this card and it looks more like a way to market this GPU. And it is that we do not forget the disappointment that his older sister had with regard to games in motion and we must bear in mind that it will be worse.
