Main Features

Power Efficient Performance

Engineered from the ground up, the AMD RDNA™ 2 architecture introduces significant GPU advancements in the form of an enhanced Compute Unit, new visual pipeline, and all new AMD Infinity Cache™. In select professional applications, the AMD RDNA 2 architecture delivers up to 94% faster performance over previous generation GCN architecture1 . This helps enable higher resolution performance together with vivid visuals, incorporating exceptional performance and power efficiency.

Affordable Realtime Hardware Raytracing

New to the AMD RDNA 2 Compute Unit is the implementation of a high-performance raytracing acceleration architecture known as the Ray Accelerator. This specialized hardware handles the intersection of rays directly on the AMD Radeon PRO W6400 for accelerated hardware raytracing.

Office Productivity Workloads

Being efficient with your standard office productivity tools is not a choice, AMD believes it should be standard. One minute you’re on a teleconference with spreadsheets, browsers and emails open, the next you’re making changes to that unexpected presentation you have to deliver. This is when you need your GPU to keep up with your demands (and we all know that this doesn't happen as often as it should as our daily duties rely on multi-tasking and increased collaboration). The Radeon PRO W6400 has been engineered to meet these moments without batting an eye.

3D Design Workloads

The Radeon PRO W6400 offers extensive support and software certifications for many architecture, engineering, design and manufacturing workloads. The main benefits of this affordable, light workload graphics card is its ability to handle a broad range of 2D and 3D tasks while balancing dependability, with affordability. It’s packed with high-speed memory, great compute performance and the latest graphics architecture for increased workflow efficiencies.

Image Editing Workloads

Image Editing can be a resource intensive task requiring a medium workload GPU. However, what do you do if you don’t need to edit images on a daily basis? This is where the Radeon PRO W6400 GPU steps in. Built to be dependable and offer access to the latest graphics technology, this affordable GPU brings 8K, Ultra-HD, HDR support, video decoding acceleration along with performance for media workloads.
