Tipster @KOMACHI_ENSAKA recently claimed to have spotted product listings for the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400. The cards are reportedly built on the Navi 24 GPU, with 4GB of GDDR6 across a 64-bit memory bus.

Tipster @KOMACHI_ENSAKA recently stated that he'd seen product listings for two upcoming budget AMD graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6500 XT and the Radeon RX 6400. Both of these cards will reportedly feature 4GB of GDDR6 memory, and are built on the upcoming Navi 24 GPU. 

Earlier rumors indicated that Navi 24 features a narrow 64-bit memory bus, meaning bandwidth could be restricted to 150 GB/s or less. @KOMACHI_ENSAKA didn't reveal further information about either the RX 6500 XT or the RX 6400, other than their names and the possibility that they're Navi 24 parts. However, based on what we already know about Navi 24, it's possible to paint a picture of what the RX 6500 XT and 6400 look like and perform. 

Earlier leaks indicate that a fully-enabled Navi 24 GPU will have 1024 shader cores, 4GB of GDDR6 memory, and 16MB of Infinity Cache, just one fourth of the amount present on Navi 23, the next step up. If we're looking at Navi 24 parts that are partially-enabled (which may well be the case for the RX 6400), performance would likely be half of the RX 6600.

That card delivers 60 FPS-plus in most AAA games with ray-tracing disabled. This means that the RX 6500 XT and 6400 may be able to deliver a console-style 1080p/30 FPS with settings cranked up, making them decent options if priced right.
