Today AMD announced new additions to the AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series desktop and mobile workstation graphics lineup, designed to deliver exceptional performance, stability and reliability for professional users, including CAD designers, engineers and office knowledge workers. The new AMD Radeon PRO W6400 graphics card is built on the high-performance, energy efficient AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture and advanced 6 nm manufacturing process technology, with 16 MB of high-bandwidth, low-latency AMD Infinity Cache memory technology acting as a bandwidth amplifier. Offering an ideal blend of performance and efficiency at an affordable price, the new graphics card is optimized for the requirements of today's popular CAD and office productivity applications in a compact design that can be easily added to modern small-form-factor desktops.

Compared to the previous generation, the AMD Radeon PRO W6400 graphics card delivers up to three times higher performance in Autodesk AutoCAD 2022 during 3D orbit rotational tests in shaded modes. It also offers up to 87 percent higher performance in McNeel Rhino using the Holomark 2 benchmark with mesh, object and model data stress tests. The new graphics card also offers performance gains in typical office applications and workloads, such as videoconferencing, email and web browsing, where reliability and stability are key. Additions to the AMD Radeon PRO product family also include the AMD Radeon PRO W6500M and AMD Radeon PRO W6300M GPUs for next-gen professional mobile workstations. The new GPUs are also built on AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture with 6 nm process technology and harness up to 8 MB of AMD Infinity Cache memory technology to deliver ultra-high viewport frame rates, dependability and exceptional performance for professional applications.




"Work patterns have changed dramatically over the last year, requiring professional users to work more efficiently and complete projects faster than ever," said Scott Herkelman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. "The Radeon PRO W6400 is a powerful graphics card that harnesses the award-winning AMD RDNA 2 architecture feature set, enabling not only mainstream CAD professionals to produce incredible and complex designs, but also meeting the demands of today's office workers who need to edit images, create presentations, collaborate and multitask more than ever. In addition, the new AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series mobile graphics provide the ideal combination of performance and mobility to drive a range of workloads for professionals on the go."

High-Performance and Advanced Features
The new additions to the AMD Radeon PRO product family deliver an ideal combination of performance, efficiency, and affordability for mainstream professional users. Key features include:

  • AMD RDNA 2 Architecture: The award-winning AMD RDNA 2 graphics architecture delivers up to 94 percent faster performance over previous generation GCN architecture.
  • AMD Infinity Cache Memory Technology: Up to 16 MB of last-level data cache (L3) integrated on the GPU die is designed to reduce latency and power consumption, enabling higher performance compared to previous architectural designs.
  • Advanced Features: AMD Radeon PRO W6000 Series graphics offer hardware-accelerated ray tracing, remote working capabilities, 8K display support, the latest PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 high-speed data transfer, VR creator support, HDR Ready support and Quad-buffer stereo - all supported as standard features.
  • Viewport Boost: The dynamic resolution technology is designed to improve frame rates in GPU-limited scenarios. By intelligently lowering resolution only in scenarios where fast in-viewport movement is detected, it can deliver a significant improvement in interactivity without impacting user-perceived image quality.
  • Application Certifications: AMD continues to work with leading professional software application vendors such as Autodesk, Robert McNeel & Associates, and others to help ensure AMD Radeon PRO graphics cards are built and tested to meet exceptional standards, delivering the stability and reliability required by workstation professionals.

The AMD Radeon PRO W6400 graphics card is expected to be available beginning in Q1 2022, starting at an SEP of $229 USD. AMD Radeon PRO W6500M and Radeon PRO W6300M GPUs are expected to be available in pre-built OEM systems in select countries later this year.

Looks good for my wife computer, she's using my WX 4100. Would be a nice upgrade.
Admins might want to update the spec page, it doesn't need a 6 pin and the bandwidth is 128. :)
Price range should be cheaper, but I'm going to buy it for my wife, but do some gaming benchmarks. Going to buy that along with the W6600(whenever the price drops on that)

another piece trash................. for 230us





and let me guess them compare scam and incomplete gpu with T600, T600 have encode capabilities and full PCIe 3.0 x16


:)



T600: but do you have encode capabilities and real pci-e bandwith ?

W6400

ummm....no, just no.....

4Gb vram in a workstation card simply aint worth shit..... plus with only display 2 outputs, you will have to buy a docking station if you wanna use additional monitors, like most pro's do :)

At my office we had 8GB cards in our workstations + 64GB of ram (using the same CAD apps mentioned above) and they were constantly stuttering and making us wait way too long for renders to complete... so we upgraded to 48GB RTX cards & 256Gb of ram, and haven't looked back since.....

The biggest fault here is really the 2 monitor outs imo. A lot of workstations use cards of this caliber for the stability and certified drivers alone (vs using geforce/radeon or igp), nothing to do with rendering or cad. But with just 2 monitor outs it limits it's market quite a bit.

The price is also irrelevant because it's a workstation class card, they're always price gouged :D

W6400
So you think PCI-e 3.0 X 16 is better than PCI-e 4.0 X 4 despite the pictured benchmarks showing them as roughly comparable?
Seems like fair value to me if you don't use encode, and imagine how sad Nvidia would be if the full X 16 lanes were used.

I see it like this, just buy a W6600 if you had a choice between the w6600 and w6400. I am looking forward to seeing some gaming benchmarks.

and then i saw the images. oh no.

Read todays TPU review, they suffer quite a bit at 3.0 x4 - upwards of 10%

I read that, but I'm assuming it is used at 4.0 X 4

Not to play devils advocate, but


So more correctly they can have a performance decrease of up to 10% (ish) on pcie ver3.0 depending on the game and resolution ;)

"Powerful CAD Performance for Mainstream Workstation Users"​


Why can't you just forget about those friggin useless GAMMIN benchmarks already, cause they mean absolutely NUTHIN to the folks for which this card is designed..... :)

Why can't i forget about gaming benchmarks already for workstation users? What ? like myself.
I have a WX 4100, WX 7100, WX 5100 and two w5500's , i pretty much only game with workstation gpus ( have a rx 570 for backup ). There's other people who game with workstation gpus too. Yes workstation gpus are not designed for gaming, but that doesn't mean people can't game with them. The WX 7100 for example is a bit faster and more powerful than the rx 570. So your opinion is really just "your" opinion, because not everyone may agree with, i don't. Using one of my w5500's on my main rig and i game and do everything just fine.

Soon as the prices drop, picking up a W6600. :)

What's really sad is my single slot Quadro M4000 has 8GB of VRAM. That's a Maxwell GPU, from like 2014. I even had a WX3100 before I sold it off, that had 4 mini-DP ports. Why couldn't AMD keep using those mini-DP ports on these half height cards? They ABSOLUTELY should use mini-DP for workstation cards if it's going to be half height.

You know you can put in 2 cards if you really need...
You can, but at that point you might as well go with a different case design and not intentionally limit your GPU's height, so that you can get a better GPU for the price of two of the W6400s. Plus the GPU is in x4. The W6400 in particular should not be called a "workstation card" at all. It should be called a "display card" if anything, and it even fails at that, by having a mere 2 video outputs, when prior generation WX3100s and WX3200s had 4.

I will say though, the new W6000 series overall looks pretty nice, especially the return of dual GPU graphics cards. It's a shame it's only a Mac product for now...

W6400M is 64bit / 4GB VRAM
W6300M is 32bit / 2GB VRAM
(ouch ... that 2GB can't handle multiple uWHDq displays)

at least they didn't sell it as W6500M :)

p.s. anyone using solidworks shall avoid GPU with less than 8GB VRAM ...
