The Navi 24 GPU at 6 nanometers that we saw on board the new Radeon RX 6500 XT also appears three professional Radeon Pro models aimed at the world of entry-level workstations, two solutions aimed at the world of notebooks (Radeon Pro W6500M and Radeon Pro W6300M) and one to the office cubicle (Radeon Pro W6400).
Speaking of technical specifications, the interesting aspect is that the most “body” model of the three is not the desktop solution but the Radeon Pro W6500M aimed at laptops, with 1024 stream processors like the Radeon RX 6500 XT. The so-called game clock should also be similar between these proposals, around around 2600 MHz. Inside the GPU we find 16 MB of Infinity cache and 12 dedicated ray accelerators for ray tracing.
The Radeon Pro W6500M is not to be missed 4 GB of 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory on 64-bit bus. Depending on the clock settings established by laptop manufacturers, this solution can consume between 35 and 50W.
The minor model Radeon Pro W6300M offers only 768 stream processors and the GPU clock runs around 2200 MHz. But not the only cut: Infinity Cache drops to 8MBwhile memory – still GDDR6 at 16 Gbps – drops to 2 GB on 32-bit bus. Thanks to these specifications reduced to a flicker, the consumption of this professional solution drops to a maximum of 25 watt.
Regarding the Radeon Pro W6400 for the desktop industrythe GPU is configured with 768 stream processors assets like the Radeon RX 6400 that we’ll only see in pre-built and canned PCs 16MB Infinity Cache. Also, the GPU frequency is around 2300 MHz. As far as memory is concerned, the Radeon Pro W6400 has 4 GB of 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory on 64-bit bus. All this requires 50Wtherefore, it is powered entirely through the PCI Express slot.
Finally, the card is equipped with two DSC DisplayPort1.4 outputs that allow you to drive as many 4K monitors and comes with an interface PCIe 4.0 x4. Common to all the mentioned models is the lack of support for AV1 encoding and decoding, as well as H.265 encoding. H.265 decoding is supported instead.

According to AMD, these three solutions were born for a manage light graphics tasks, from 2D CAD to photo editing and productivity with the Office suite. The two video outputs and 4GB memory should also suffice for these tasks.
The Radeon Pro W6400produced in a discreet format, has an MSRP of $229$30 more than a more hardware-powerful Radeon RX 6500 XT, but lacks support and certifications for pro programs.
According to AMD, the Radeon Pro W6400 represents a marked step up from the previous Radeon Pro WX 3200 and rivals solutions such as the Nvidia T600, beating it in various scenarios as shown in the benchmarks visible above.
