AMD driver confirms RX 6500M and RX 6300M ​​with Navi 24-GPU


The two AMD GPUs based on the Navi 24 chip are expected to come to the desktop, namely the Radeon RX 6500 XT and the Radeon RX 6400. Now several laptop video cards based on Navi 24 have also surfaced.

A recent Linux driver from AMD reveals that the company is working on a Radeon RX 6500M and Radeon RX 6300M. Presumably, the RX 6500M will be the laptop variant of the RX 6500 XT (desktop), with largely the same specifications. We are probably talking about 16 compute units (1,024 cores) and a 64-bit memory bus, with a maximum of 4 GB of VRAM attached. Based on its name, the RX 6300M ​​seems to serve the lower end of the market.

Intel’s upcoming Arc Alchemist budget cards, which are expected to hit the market this spring AMD’s Navi 24 models may compete with that.

In addition to the Radeon RX cards, the Radeon Pro W6500M and Pro W6300M ​​are also in the driver, based on the Navi 24 chip. If the past is any indication, those cards have virtually the same hardware as their Radeon RX siblings, but with workstation drivers and possibly slightly different clock speeds.

It is not yet known when AMD will officially announce the new GPUs. The CES 2022 in January seems like a possible event.
