AMD could have a new graphics card designed as a super-cheap GPU, slotting under the current RX 6400, or it’s a theory that is now being banded through Rumor Mill.
Comes from this Fornix.com (Opens in new tab) Which reported on a search for AMD’s Linux graphics driver (for Linux 5.19) that adds a new device ID for a ‘base goby’ card.
The Beige Gobi family is a low-end RDNA 2 (current-genre card) made with the Navi 24 GPU, such as the existing RX 6500 XT and RX 6400 graphics cards.
We don’t know for sure what a potential new Navi 24 GPU might be: it might just be a refresh of an existing model, the RX 6400 rationally, although we’re not sure how much it would be understandable to jam another GPU. Line up here – or it could be a whole new product.
One theory mentioned above suggests that AMD could produce an RX 6300 model to sit below the RX 6400 at a more wallet-friendly price point.
There’s a lot of salt to be added at the moment, because it’s just a guess – the GPU in question might be something, or really nothing, because adding code to the Linux driver rarely confirms that a new product has been introduced from Team Red. That said, we’ve already heard a rumor that an RX 6300 could happen …
Analysis: Bargaining Basement GPUs War?
With these warnings in mind, let’s discuss what this might mean. It is perhaps somewhat understandable that AMD could explore more options in the budget GPU segment if you consider that Nvidia seems to be moving into this space.
Remember the rumors – and again, these are just rumors – Nvidia is building a GTX 1630 as a new low-end graphics card, perhaps to finally give people a real budget-based alternative (speculation claims that 1630 could only be launched by 1630). ) A few days).
AMD therefore seeks to retaliate against this so-called introverted GPU. Looking at the RX 6300M - because yes, a mobile version of the 6300 already exists – the space on this laptop’s GPU is significantly weaker than that of the RX 6400, and so a desktop variant may follow the same path; Which could create somewhat weak sauce for gamers. That said, there are also concerns about the GTX 1630 …
In the end, without any idea what glasses might be for an AMD card, we would be foolish to try to make a comparison with a rumored Nvidia GPU.
We need to see how this potential budget card battle works, but one thing to keep in mind is that there is already some frustration around the power of the desktop RX 6400, as would be expected of any low-spec RX 6300 model. Also, it is possible that the 6300 may only be OEM (at least initially).
