ASUS announces two AMD Radeon RX 6400 series graphics cards

AMD has a new Radeon graphics card for ultra budget gamers, and ASUS has just launched two models

AMD has just launched their Radeon RX 6400 graphics card into the DIY PC market, giving PC gamers a great budget-oriented upgrade option for low powered systems. 

With their Radeon RX 6400, AMD's aiming to displace graphics cards like Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1650, offering great low power performance to gamers. With an MSRP of $159, Nvidia has no competition for this low-end graphics card model. We have included an infographic below which details this GPU's performance when compared to Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1650. However, please note that this is an infographic from AMD, so its included data may be cherry picked. 

Alongside the release of AMD's RX 6400 into the DIY PC market, ASUS has revealed two RX 6400 GPU models, their RX 6400 DUAL and their RX 6400 Phoenix. Both models are available starting now, though it looks like UK retailers have not recieved stock of these graphics cards yet. 

Like all Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6400 features full support for the DirectX 12 Ultimate feature set, which includes support for Mesh Shaders, Variable Rate Shading, Hardware Accelerated Ray Tracing, and DirectStorage. This graphics card features 4GB of video memory, features 16MB of Infinity Cache, and supports Smart Access Memory.

Much like AMD's RX 6500 XT, the Radeon RX 6400 supports DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.1, and H264/H265 decode support. This graphics card can be connected to PCs using a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, and this graphics card supports AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution, and Radeon Super Resolution technologies.

Below is ASUS' press release for their two RX 6400 series GPU models. 

ASUS announces two AMD Radeon RX 6400 series graphics cards

Press Release - ASUS announces AMD Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards

- Two ASUS Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards for affordable and energy-efficient mainstream 1080p gaming

- ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards combine first-class cooling properties in a compact design

- ASUS Phoenix Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards are a rugged option built to last

ASUS today announced AMD Radeon™ RX 6400 graphics cards that have been optimized to be an affordable and power-efficient choice for mainstream 1080p gaming rigs.

High resolutions and refresh rates may be the pinnacle of modern gaming, but 1080p is still the resolution of choice for most gamers these days. Whether playing graphically intensive single player games at 60 frames per second or competitive eSports titles at 120Hz and beyond, gamers need a card that can keep up.

The new Radeon RX 6400 is available in two variants from ASUS: the ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6400 and the Phoenix Radeon RX 6400. The dual variant, which is available now, uses two Axial-Tech fans with barrier rings that improve airflow direct to the heatsink where it is needed most. 0db technology shuts down the fans completely when the card's temperature drops below 52°C, giving the user complete peace of mind when the system is not under intense gaming load. Once gamers start gaming, the fans only spin up when the GPU temperature reaches 60°C for quiet and powerful cooling.

The ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6400 runs at a game clock of up to 2039MHz [1] , which can be boosted up to 2321MHz [2] to squeeze every bit of performance out of the GPU when circumstances demand it. 4GB of GDDR6 memory on a 64-bit bus provides the prerequisites for FHD gaming, and an HDMI® 2.1 and a DisplayPort™ 1.4a connection allow use with any modern display or TV. An aluminum backplate keeps the card straight and stable, adding premium style to the system along with subtle lighting that enhances the geometric lines of the card cover.

The Phoenix Radeon RX 6400 graphics card uses a similar design to its larger sibling, albeit with a more affordable single-fan implementation without the aluminum backplate and lighting. Both cards are manufactured using our Auto-Extreme assembly process and a rigorous 144 hour validation program to ensure these cards are ready to perform in the real world right out of the box.

The new graphics cards are based on the powerful and energy-efficient AMD RDNA™ gaming architecture and feature high-bandwidth, low-latency AMD Infinity Cache™ memory technology and high-speed GDDR6 memory. In addition, they support Microsoft Windows 11 and Microsoft DirectX® 12 Ultimate, AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution (FSR) and AMD Radeon Super Resolution (RSR) upscaling technologies, AMD Smart Access Memory™ technology and other advanced features that provide a visually enable immersive gaming experience with high refresh rate.

[1] Game Clock is the expected GPU clock when running typical gaming applications, set to typical TGP (Total Graphics Power). Actual individual game clock results may vary.

[2] Boost clock frequency is the maximum achievable frequency of the GPU when running a heavy workload. The achievable boost clock speed, frequency and sustainability depends on various factors including but not limited to: thermal conditions and variations in applications and workloads.

AVAILABILITY

ASUS Dual and Phoenix Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards will be available from April 20, 2022.

MSRP is $60 too high, so with ASUS tax, it will be anywhere from $100-$160 too high. Especially since 6500XTs and GTX 1650s are available relatively cheap anyway.Quote
