AMD quietly launched its Radeon RX 6400 graphics card for the DIY market.
AMD RX 6400 is the slowest discrete graphics card based on the RDNA2 architecture released until now. The GPU model is not exactly new either. It was already launched for OEMs back in January. However, AMD only launched this GPU card for the GPU market today with an array of partners, including ASRock, Biostar, Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, and XFX.
Every one of these GPUs appears to be a miniature model, and many of them are low-profile, single-slot GPUs that can fit in much narrower cases.
The AMD Radeon RX 6400 is based on the NAVI 24 GPU with 768 Stream Processors, making it a cut-down version of the RX 6500XT. The GPU card ships with a base clock of 1923 MHz and a game and boost clock of 2039 MHz and 2321 MHz. The DIY models share the same clock speeds as the OEM model released in January. It is sold with 4GB of GDDR6X memory across a 64-bit memory bus.
None of the GPU cards released today needs an external power connector to run. These cards are powered off the PCI-Express interface, which is enough to deliver the required 53W of power.
The official retail price for the RX 6400 has been set to $159, nearly $40 lesser than the more powerful RX 6500XT.
