Custom Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards are coming anyway

From what we know from South Korea’s “National Radio Research Agency” (RRA), we’ll soon be seeing custom low-power RDNA2 GPUs for desktops. All we have to do is wait until April 20 for AMD’s multiple new processors; the Ryzen 5000/4000. In addition, there will also be some new Radeon Rx 6000 GPUs. While the date for these processors and GPUs has been confirmed, we’re still not sure when the company plans to launch the upgraded Radeon graphics cards. But we can say one thing for sure; AMD is definitely planning a major product refresh this spring.

Aside from the rumors circulating around the Radeon RX 6X50XT series, we’re hearing more about AMD launching the slowest RDNA2 GPU specifically designed for the DIY market. It is currently unclear whether this model will have the same specifications as the OEM model. However, the RRA report points to a potentially modified Gigabyte Eagle series model.

As of now, the Radeon RX 6400 is only available to OEMs. It is a Navi 24 based GPU with 768 stream processors. Setup wise, this one stands as the only reference low profile model; it is the only card with a TDP of 53W and requires no external power connectors.

In short, if we stick to what these reports claim, AMD is all set to launch a trio of the new Radeon RX 6000 SKUs. These are the 6950XT, the 6750XT and the 6650XT. The RX 6400 is kept exclusively for the do-it-yourselfers. It’s not a gaming GPU as it has limited video encoding capabilities, but it will be a good match for home theater PCs.
