AMD’s upcoming entry-level RDNA 2 cards will only feature 4 GB of GDDR6 memory. This is according to leaker KOMACHI_ENSAKA, who tweeted about the alleged memory capacity for the Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon RX 6400 today. Both of these graphics cards are expected to leverage the Navi 24 GPU.

From VideoCardz’s coverage:
[…] This GPU is to feature up to 16 Compute Units with a total of 1024 Stream Processors, a 50% cores of the Navi 23. It is by no means a proper daily gaming GPU, but it could be a reasonable choice for casual gaming or multimedia. In fact, Navi 24 should be a lot more popular for laptops. […]
Navi 24 GPU had already appeared in Linux patches with a codename of “Beige Goby”. The processor is rumored to feature a 64-bit memory bus and memory configurations up to 4GB GDDR6, such as the one mentioned by KOMACHI. […]
This relatively paltry amount of memory could previously be found in Navi-based models such as the Radeon RX 5300 XT and Radeon RX 5500, both of which featured 4 GB of GDDR5 or GDDR6 memory. AMD launched the Radeon RX 6600 in October with a suggested price of $329.
