What’s the bottom barrel of the Radeon RX 6000 Series ultimately going to look like? We might be finding out soon, as reputable leaker KOMACHI_ENSAKA has discovered some changes in AMD’s software that indicate a Radeon RX 6300 graphics card is on the way. This SKU is theorized to feature just 2 GB of GDDR6 memory, half the amount of the Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon RX 6400. The release notes for the latest version of AMD’s GPU Performance API also hints at the existence of a Radeon RX 6300.

AMD is preparing Radeon RX 6300 entry-level card for OEMs (VideoCardz)

As revealed by AMD themselves, the GPU Performance API already supports a new RX 6300 SKU in the latest 3.10 version. This is the first indirect confirmation that such a desktop part is actually being prepared. The changelog specifically mentions RX 6300 and not RX 6300M, which is already available for laptops.

The Radeon RX 6300 is almost certainly going to occupy the lowest tier in the whole RDNA2 lineup. This part is likely to feature reduced memory size to 2GB, which is the current configuration used by its mobile counterpart (RX 6300M).

AMD might also consider lowering the Stream Processor count, but this would make an already slow GPU even slower, to the point where one might consider APUs or CPUs with integrated GPUs instead.
