AMD introduces new Radeon Pro GPUs for desktop and mobile

AMD has just introduced three new entry-level workstation graphics cards. We were already expecting the company to officially announce the Radeon Pro W6400, but we got a pleasant surprise in the form of the Radeon W6500M and W6300M mobile workstation GPUs.

Aimed at professional users, such as CAD designers, engineers and knowledge workers, AMD's new workstation graphics cards based on the RDNA 2 graphics architecture use the TSMC N6 node to improve efficiency and performance. Like other Radeon Pro W6000 series cards, they also pack Infinity Cache that works as a bandwidth amplifier.

Powered by the Navi 24 GPU with 12 CUs (768 stream processors) enabled, the Radeon Pro W6400 comes with 4GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps across a 64-bit memory bus, plus 16MB of Infinity Cache. Available video outputs include 2x DisplayPorts 1.4 with DSC and audio, and TDP is rated at just 50W. Compared to its predecessor, AMD claims the W6400 is three times faster in AutoCAD 2022's 3D orbit rotational tests (shaded modes) and 87% more performance in Holomark 2's mesh, object and model data stress tests.

Both mobile SKUs are also based on the Navi 24 GPU. However, while the W6500M has a fully enabled die with 16 CUs (1024 stream processors), the W6300M only has 12 CUs (768 stream processors) enabled. Memory configurations also differ significantly, with the W6500M packing 16MB of Infinity Cache and 4GB of GDDR6 memory running at 16Gbps on a 64-bit memory bus. The W6300M comes with 8MB of Infinity Cache paired with 2GB of GDDR6 memory at 16Gbps across a 32-bit memory bus.

AMD plans to release the Radeon Pro W6400 later this quarter for $229. The Radeon Pro W6500M and W6300M should be available in pre-built OEM systems later this year.
