AMD Radeon RX 6400 Graphics Card Enters The DIY Market, An Entry-Level & Low-Power Design For Budget Users

As expected, the AMD Radeon RX 6400 is based on the Navi 24 GPU core and based on the TSMC 6nm process node. It features 5.4 Billion transistors within a 107mm2 die size and features a total of 768 stream processors within 12 RDNA 2 Compute Units. The card will come in reference-only clock speeds with the base clock reported at 2039 MHz and the boost clock reported at 2321 MHz which gives us 3.5 TFLOPs of horsepower to work with. There's also 4 GB of GDDR6 memory that's operating at 1750 MHz (14 Gbps) across a 64-bit bus interface. This gives us a total of 112 GB/s of bandwidth.

The whole AMD Radeon RX 6400 graphics card has a TBP rated at around 54W and as such, it doesn't require any external power connectors. Now the card has been spotted in retail stores in various regions including APAC and South America.

Variants such as the MSI Radeon RX 6400 AERO ITX are listed for up to $51,500 and that converts to $460 US in Argentina. As for the Chinese listing, the graphics card from AIB TUL is listed for 1500 RMB or $235 USD. Now both of these prices are higher than the $199 US MSRP of the RX 6500 XT which is a better card but once again, these are preliminary listings so it is likely that we can see some adjustments happen in the coming days.

The AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT is mostly available around its MSRP with just a 1-2% price hike in various regions so in no way or form should the Radeon RX 6400 cost twice as much as the MSRP of the 6500 XT. The new card is expected to be formally announced on either 20th April or 10th May so it is advisable to not purchase these cards prior to their launch.
