AMD may be working on graphics cards priced between the RX 6400 and RX 6500 XT

Tech Highlights:

  • That’s a fairly simple setup, considering 4GB on any 2022 card is considered low. However, assuming it uses fast GDDR6 and some Infinity Cache, the bandwidth available should be plenty. Yes, that is a rose-colored glasses perspective, but in today’s GPU market, any type of reasonable GPU for casual gamers is a good thing.

  • AMD is rumoured to be working on entry-level GPUs based on the Navi 24 GPU. These are cards that the market desperately needs, as even the most cheap current generation cards are priced much beyond the grasp of casual gamers. The RX 6400 and RX 6500 XT, which may be the last RX 6000 desktop cards to be launched, are said to include 4GB of VRAM and a 64-Bit bus.

The news comes via Japanese with additional information from Videocardz. If the rumored specifications are true, these cards certainly won’t be potent gaming GPUs but given the current prices of more capable GPUs, these could find their way into gamers’ rigs in higher numbers than you’d expect. Older titles should run at high frame rates without issue, while popular Esports and MOBA games should also run smoothly. You can forget about running the latest titles with ray tracing enabled and all the eye candy on, but a bit of CS:GO or Fortnite at a decent frame rate shouldn’t be a problem.

Depending on the final TDP, the Navi 24 GPU is likely to find its way into affordable gaming laptops too, at least those that require more gaming grunt than you’d get from AMD’s APUs and Intel CPUs with Xe graphics. Gamers aren’t the only ones looking for affordable cards. If Navi 24 is equipped with the same video engine as the faster RX 6000 cards, then the RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 will make excellent home theater PC cards. It would be even better if the RX 6400 came with a low-profile option and consume under 75W, negating the need for a PCIe power connector. These two characteristics alone would see many buyers lining up.
