    Meet AMD's Radeon RX 6400. It has 4GB of 64-bit RAM and a whiff of Inifinity Cache (16MB L3). This card might operate at Radeon RX 480 levels when connected to a PCIe Gen x4 connection (3.0/4.0). Rea...

    Either drop the price or put in faster memory and this would be a pretty good GPU. We hardly ever see low profile and single-slot GPUs that can actually play games.
    It's kind of funny because the VRAM is really the only thing that makes this worse than my old R9 290 even though that consumes roughly 5x the power and was one of the largest GPUs you could buy at the time.

    This would be nice hardware encoder for my PLEX server, but not willing to pay any cent over €99 for something like this. (And even that is the absolute limit, 79 would be more reasonable)
    At current price it's a definite no-go.

    I shouldn't have read this review. It only made me realise just how long overdue my graphics card upgrade is. RX 6400 is clearly a "found in a cereal box" class graphics card, but it's just as powerful as my mummified card.

    Generally worse than a 570 for games and that retailed for $10 more half a decade ago. Being a single slot card is a plus but the temps are quite high for this class of card.

    Agreed, the latter feels like an MSRP this card should have.

    I paid for my RX580 the same this POS costs. What does AMD think, that there's still a mining market? Bah!
    Thanks for the review, information is valuable, but I'd love to stick this one up AMD ass.

    We'll never get a card as good as rx580 at that price again.
