Sure, you can get this functionality with calc.el as well:
indeed num-base-converters.el internally calls `calc-number-radix'.

One point of this library is the convenience of not having to
know anything about neither calculator.el nor calc.el to get
the answer with easy.

Every Emacs user will understand the following:
M-x nbc-hex2dec ff RET
"ff hexadecimal = 255 decimal"

M-: (nbc-oct2dec "644") RET
=> 420
