In recent news, AMD is rumored to be introducing a line of entry-level GPUs that use the RDNA 2 architecture.
AMD has just introduced a new GPU for gamers on a limited budget called the Radeon RX 6600. This GPU is intended for gamers who want to play comfortably at a resolution. 1080p and uses the RDNA 2 architecture. But reportedly, AMD is currently preparing another GPU that will be included in the entry-level category. And interestingly, they will still use RDNA 2 for the GPU.
This GPU will be based on the Navi 24, which is still in the RDNA 2 family in a recent leak. They will still include this GPU in the Radeon RX 6000 series family. This GPU will be introduced in the first quarter of 2022. The Navi 24 will be the smallest discrete GPU in the RDNA 2 lineup coming to desktop platforms. This GPU has a power rating of 100 to 120W.
Wccftech (October 22) reports that the GPU, which is expected to be called the Radeon RX 6500, will compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and the entry-tier Intel ARC. There are at least two variants for the Navi 24 variant at a fairly affordable price.
On the other hand, they will also launch a GPU with the same chipset but using a 75W TDP. And reportedly, this GPU is said to be present for entry-level gaming notebooks. As for specifications, rumors say that the Radeon RX 6500 will carry a single SDMA engine, with 2 shader arrays with a total of 8 WGP and a maximum of 16 Core Counts.
This GPU will also have 64 stream processors per compute unit so that the total core count on the Navi 24 GPU will be at 1024. This specification is half of the Navi 23 GPU, which will offer 2048 stream processors in 32 compute units.
In addition to the numbber of cores, each shader array will feature 128 KB of L1 cache, 1 MB of L2 cache, and there will also be 16 MB of Infinity Cache (LLC). Regarding the price, this GPU is expected to be around USD 200.
