AMD announces Radeon PRO W6400 for office professionals

AMD just expanded its Radeon PRO W6000 Series with the announcement of the Radeon PRO W6400 GPU. The graphics card is built for creators, enterprise workers, and business professionals and sits below the more powerful PRO W6000 Series GPUs that AMD launched last year. The Radeon PRO W6400 is a small form factor GPU which AMD compares to the NVIDIA T1000 and NVIDIA T600.

AMD took a Goldilocks approach when making the Radeon PRO W6400. The graphics card is meant to meet the demands of professional workers without focusing on getting the highest performance benchmarks possible. For example, AMD found that half of pro users only have a single display and that over a third have two displays. As such, the Radeon PRO W6400 is optimized for two displays or a single 8K display.

Here’s how the Radeon PRO W6400 stacks up against some of AMD’s other offerings from the Radeon PRO W6000 Series as well as similar cards from NVIDIA:

NVIDIA’s T1000 and T600 have more display outputs, while AMD’s Radeon PRO W6400 delivers higher peak performance. Professionals will likely lean toward AMD or NVIDIA’s cards depending on specific workflow requirements.

The Radeon PRO W6400 is built on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. It also utilizes AMD’s Infinity Cache technology, which helps increase effective bandwidth. The Radeon PRO W6400 supports AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution as well. Windows 11 is supported by the GPU at launch.

AMD has not shared a release date for the Radeon PRO W6400 at this time.
