ASRock to introduce Challenger ITX model of Radeon RX 6400
Whether you like it or not, custom Radeon RX 6400 graphics cards are coming.
ASRock is setting up another model planned in an ITX structure factor. Following a send off of Radeon RX 6500XT, AMD's first designs card with 6nm Navi 24 GPU, board accomplices are presently preparing to uncover their RX 6400 models also. Those cards will include custom cooling arrangements.
The RX 6400 card presented below is essential for the Challenger ITX series. Despite the fact that it's a fairly small card, it's still a dual space plan, like the 6500XT model.

One can quickly see that coolers are not a very similar thing, and the truth can be told, even the blade visible behind the fan has been replaced by an aluminum heatsink and the fan itself is also smaller. The main change is visible to the naked eye, however, the 8-pin power connector is missing. This is because RX 6400 has lower board power than 6500XT (53W vs 107W).

The RX 6400 graphics card has 768 Stream Processors and 4GB GDDR6 memory across a 64-bit interface. As noted before, Navi 24 is a power-efficient GPU, but it was not designed for gaming. The RX 6500XT was already named ‘the worst GPU’ in RDNA2 series due to limited bandwidth, lacking encoding capabilities and requirement of PCIe Gen4 x4 interface, because it is visibly slower on Gen3. With even fewer enabled cores, RX 6400 will be a though sell for anything else than integrated GPU replacement or Home Theater systems.
