With the Radeon RX 6400, AMD has launched a new entry-level graphics card for a price of 185 euros.
The Radeon RX 6400 is suitable for office computers.
The market for graphics cards has been characterized by high prices and poor availability for months. Even simple graphics cards for office computers are exorbitantly expensive. Manufacturer AMD wants to relax the market with the Radeon RX 6400. For 185 euros, buyers get a GPU that already uses RDNA2 technology and is intended to compete with the Geforce GTX 1650 and Geforce GTX 1050.
One or two fans
For OEMs, the Radeon RX 6400 has been available for complete computers since January. It was actually only expected in May that private customers would also be able to use this low-power graphics card. Now the board partners also offer corresponding models of the RX 6400, some of which take up little space in the housing and only need one fan. At least the two manufacturers Asrock and Sapphire rely on a single-fan design, Asus offers a GPU with two fans.
4 GB VRAM and 53 watt power consumption
The Radeon RX 6400 is based on the Navi 24 GPU with 768 stream processors. Basically, it is a slimmed-down model of the Radeon RX 6500 XT. AMD relies on a base clock of 1,923 MHz and a turbo clock of 2,321 MHz for the RX 6400. 4 GB of GDDR6X VRAM is used as memory, which is connected via a 64-bit wide interface. Higher clock rates are not to be expected since no board partner offers a corresponding model with overclocking. On the back of the card there is an HDMI 2.1 connection and a DisplayPort 1.4 socket. An external power supply for the GPU is not necessary. The power consumption is 53 watts.
