The purpose of this article is to discuss the performance of the AMD RX 6400 graphics card for gamers playing STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor. In my opinion, the RX 6400 is a low-end graphics card that offers good performance for its price point. STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor is quickly gaining popularity and is expected to be one of the most popular games in 2023. In this article, I will first provide an overview of the RX 6400. Then, I will compare the system requirements for STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor with the performance of the RX 6400.
If you want to skip the reading and answer the question “Is the RX 6400 good enough for STAR WARS Jedi: Survivor?” my answer is no. I would not buy the RX 6400 for this game, although the RX 6400 is a good graphics card for its price point. The fact of the matter is that Jedi: Survivor is not optimized for PC gaming and therefore requires a much more powerful graphics card to even run 1080P well. If you want an AMD RX graphics card and play this game, I would recommend pointing you to the RX 6500 XT as a starting point, such as the one below.
Performance (FPS) – RX 6400 and Jedi: Survivor
For those who already own an RX 6400 and are considering playing Jedi: Survivor on PC, it is important to note that you will most likely only be able to play on low or medium graphic settings. However, the game should still be playable on the RX 6400 at that level, just be prepared for 30-40 FPS which will undoubtedly cause frustration and a poor gaming experience.
Why Isn’t the RX 6400 Good for Jedi: Survivor?
Well, the system specifications for Jedi: Survivor lists 8GB of VRAM for the game as a bare minimum. That equates to the AMD RX 580 on the super low end.
The AMD Radeon RX 580 is a mid-range graphics card that was released in 2017. It is based on AMD’s Polaris architecture and features 2304 stream processors, 144 texture units, and 32 ROPs. The RX 580 has a base clock speed of 1257 MHz and a boost clock speed of 1340 MHz. It comes with 8GB of GDDR5 memory and has a memory bandwidth of 256 GB/s.
The RX 580 is capable of running most modern games at 1080p resolution with high graphics settings, and it can also handle some games at 1440p with medium to high graphics settings. That however, is not the case with Jedi: Survivor. The game was not optimized for PC. Even though the RX 580 is a minimum system requirement, the game still barely pushes 50 FPS in most tests. That’s why I recommend the RX 6500 XT as mentioned before for this game to start with.
Better Graphics Cards for Jedi: Survivor
If you want to look at some better graphics cards that would play Jedi: Survivor well on 1080P resolution, you should be looking at NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070. The RTX 3070 can play Jedi: Survivor well on 1080P resolution with Epic settings.
That being said, don’t expect to use Ray Tracing and get over 60 FPS. For that, you will need an even more powerful graphics card, like the RTX 3080 or on the AMD side, the RX 6800. It’s ridiculous that you should have to look at that level of power just to get Ray Tracing on 1080P. Don’t blame the graphics cards, blame the game developers.
