AMD hasn’t formally introduced the Radeon RX 6300, however the card has appeared on Goofish (opens in new tab) (through HXL (opens in new tab)), a second-hand Chinese language market. The low-profile Navi 24 (codename Beige Goby) graphics card reportedly sells for lower than $60 and could possibly be a wonderful entry-level competitor to rival the greatest graphics playing cards.
The primary traces of the Radeon RX 6300 surfaced in Might final yr within the Linux kernel. Nevertheless, the rumor mill had stopped spinning till lately, when the Radeon graphics card popped up on Goofish. It is unsure if AMD will launch the Radeon RX 6300 to the retail market. As an alternative, it could possibly be an OEM-exclusive SKU. HP has listed the Radeon RX 6300 as a graphics possibility for the corporate’s Elite Collection 800 G9 (opens in new tab) desktop PCs.
The Radeon RX 6300 makes use of Navi 24 silicon, just like AMD’s different RDNA 2 choices, together with the Radeon RX 6400 and Radeon RX 6500 XT. Navi 24, a die that measures 107 mm² and comes out of TSMC’s 6nm course of node, can be a outstanding possibility for discrete cellular choices, such because the Radeon RX 6500M and Radeon RX 6550S. The Radeon RX 6300 makes use of a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface. Given its tiny die dimension, Navi 24 solely homes 16 compute items (CUs). The Radeon RX 6300’s die comes with 12 enabled CUs, amounting to 768 streaming processors (SPs) and 12 Ray Tracing accelerators.
AMD makes use of the identical recipe for baking the Radeon RX 6400, however the Radeon RX 6300 is slower than the Radeon RX 6400. HP lists the previous with a 1,512 MHz recreation clock, whereas the Radeon RX 6400 contains a 2,039 MHz base clock, round 35% greater than the Radeon RX 6300. The decrease clock speeds are the product of a decrease TGP. The Radeon RX 6400 is rated for 53W, whereas the Radeon RX 6300 adheres to 32W, a 40% lower. At the very least which means you will not should fiddle with PCIe energy connectors. Each Radeon graphics playing cards draw their obligatory energy from a normal enlargement slot.

AMD did not simply hobble the clock speeds and TGP on the Radeon RX 6300. The graphics card reveals a considerable compromise to the reminiscence subsystem. It solely has 2GB of GDDR6 reminiscence, half of the Radeon RX 6400. Though the reminiscence chips run at 16 Gbps on each graphics playing cards, the Radeon RX 6300 solely has a 32-bit reminiscence interface in comparison with the Radeon RX 6400’s 64-bit bus. Subsequently, the Radeon RX 6300 can solely ship 64 GBps of reminiscence bandwidth, 50% lower than the Radeon RX 6400.
The Radeon RX 6300 could possibly be a viable possibility for small type issue (SFF) programs that lack built-in graphics. The Navi 24-based graphics card comes with two HDMI 2.1 ports, in spite of everything. Nevertheless, we won’t see it as helpful for a complete lot greater than that. The Navi 24 lacks video encoding capabilities, so it is ineffective in an HTPC. It’s miles from a gaming graphics card, however you would get away with the occasional title at 1080p (1920×1080) if the picture constancy is dialed down far sufficient.
The Chinese language service provider put the Radeon RX 6300 up for 399 yuan or $58.28. Nevertheless, that is evidently not the official worth for the reason that vendor in all probability pulled the graphics card from an OEM system and flipped it on Goofish. There aren’t many choices beneath $60. The one graphics playing cards accessible close to that worth are the older GeForce GT 710 or Radeon RD 5450 fashions, across the $50 mark.
