AMD quietly launched the Radeon RX 6400 mannequin, which was launched solely to OEMs within the first place, final week. Specifically cooled fashions have been obtainable at retailers for a while. TeowerUp’s Radeon RX 6400 assessment revealed that the cardboard lacks overclocking help.
The brand new entry-level graphics card apparently performs on par with the Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650. In keeping with TeowerUp’s outcomes, even the Radeon RX 570 launched in 2017 is quicker than the Radeon RX 6400.
The Navi 24 silicon used on this kardollarsar has some disadvantages. To summarize, there’s a bandwidth limitation with a 64-bit reminiscence interface and solely 4 (as much as) PCIe 4.0 connectivity lanes. AMD additionally throttled its media encoding capabilities. Consequently, the Navi 24 lacks help for 4K H.264/H.265 encoding and AV1 decoding. Additionally, sure AMD applied sciences like ReLive will not be obtainable.
TeowerUp claims that AMD has fully unlocked the Radeon RX 6400. It’s doable to entry the OC settings panel in AMD’s Radeon WattMan utility. Nevertheless, there are not any choices to set clock speeds and make a wide range of customized settings. Nonetheless, it is too quickly to conclude based mostly on a single instance that the corporate is throttling its overclocking capabilities. On this context, there could also be some shortcomings on the driving force’s aspect. Maybe the chipmaker has not but explicitly enabled overclocking on the Radeon RX 6400.
It could be doable to overclock the Radeon RX 6400 with third-party instruments comparable to MSI Afterburner. As a matter of truth, we’ll quickly have the chance to see extra opinions and totally different particulars of the low-budget AMD card.
