AMD’s Entry-Level Radeon Laptop And Desktop RDNA 2 GPU Specs Allegedly Surface

Radeon RX Graphics Card
This previous Saturday we reported on the potential existence of some low-powered Radeon playing cards based mostly on a long-rumored however as-yet-unseen Navi 24 GPU. Effectively, in the present day it looks like these merchandise are inching ever nearer to market. Information has come to us revealing key specs of the Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400, in addition to affirmation of the existence of cellular GPUs based mostly on the identical chip.

Let’s begin with the cellular components, lets? Buried within the newest Radeon driver, model quantity 21.40.1, AMD has marked down areas for 4 heretofore unannounced cellular graphics components: The Radeon RX 6500M, RX 6300M, Radeon PRO W6500M, and PRO W6300M. Machine IDs for these components are within the 7420-743F vary, which in keeping with earlier entries within the Linux kernel, correspond to the “Beige Goby” low-end Navi 24 GPU.

Finally we will solely actually guess on the specs of those components for now, however we will infer a bit from the opposite information. Citing a “good supply,” the parents over at Videocardz have what they are saying is stable information on AMD’s littlest RDNA 2 Radeon playing cards. The leaker says that the Radeon RX 6500 XT will bear a fully-enabled Navi 24 GPU, and that mentioned GPU may have (as we anticipated Saturday) 8 Work Group Processors (WGPs) giving it a complete of 1,024 shader cores.

That GPU will supposedly hyperlink up with 4GB of GDDR6 reminiscence throughout a 64-bit bus working at 14 Gbps, giving it 112 GB/sec of reminiscence bandwidth. Assuming that is correct, we will most likely anticipate the RX 6500M and the PRO W6500M to have comparable specs, maybe with twice the reminiscence on the PRO mannequin. The unnamed supply additionally says that the RX 6500 XT would require an ordinary energy connector, so its energy draw is prone to be over 75W.

The supply additionally claims that the Radeon RX 6400 will drop two WGPs, giving it a complete of 768 shader cores. That appears to be the most important {hardware} distinction, as the positioning claims that this card may even include 4GB of GDDR6 reminiscence on a 64-bit bus. It additionally appears possible that the GPU clock (and probably the reminiscence) shall be detuned barely to assist it match underneath a 75W complete board energy. That method it may be slot-powered.

Notably, the entire above components are based mostly on the Navi 24 “Beige Goby” GPU, which is presupposed to be a full implementation of the RDNA 2 GPU structure. For these taking part in alongside at dwelling, because of this these components will include assist for {hardware} ray tracing acceleration. Every RDNA 2 WGP has two “ray accelerators,” giving the RX 6500 XT a complete of 16, whereas the RX 6400 may have a dozen. This is not a lot ray-tracing efficiency to jot down dwelling about, however it could serve in lighter titles with a heavy software of FSR on prime.

Clearly, the laptop computer components shall be in laptops, and we’re unlikely to listen to about these too far earlier than their launch. Nonetheless, the leaker says that the lower-end discrete playing cards will present up within the first quarter of subsequent yr. These components most likely will not be too engaging to scalpers and miners, so of us aching for any GPU in any respect might not have for much longer to attend.
