AMD Radeon RX 7600 to launch at $269
The imminent release of AMD’s new mainstream graphics card, the Radeon RX 7600, based on the RDNA 3 architecture, has stirred considerable excitement among gaming enthusiasts. Recently, a comprehensive unveiling of its specifications took place online, albeit with the suspense of pricing details being intentionally retained. With the launch drawing closer, several variants of the Radeon RX 7600, including the reference design, Sapphire, XFX, ASRock, ASUS, and MSI, have already surfaced.
As reported by VideoCardz, AMD has disseminated emails to relevant parties, confirming the pricing details. The new graphics card will be available at an introductory price of $269. This represents a slight reduction compared to the initially speculated $299, possibly signaling AMD’s eleventh-hour strategic adjustment to maintain competitiveness in the market.
The Radeon RX 7600 features the Navi 33 XL GPU, manufactured using a 6nm process. It supports a PCIe 4.0 x8 interface, boasts a 32MB Infinity Cache, and comes with 32 compute units and 2048 stream processors. The card operates at a gaming clock of 2250 MHz, with a boost frequency of 2625 MHz, achieving a single-precision computing performance of 21.75 TFLOPS. Additionally, the graphics card is furnished with 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, a 128-bit memory bus width, a memory speed of 18Gbps, and an effective memory bandwidth of 476.9 GB/s.
When juxtaposed with its predecessor, the RDNA 2 architecture-based Radeon RX 6600, the newly introduced Radeon RX 7600 demands a higher power requirement, with total board power escalating from 132W to 165W and the recommended power supply rating moving from 450W to 550W. This enhancement, although accompanied by an increase in power consumption, translates into superior performance, all while maintaining a price point slightly lower than the introductory $329 for the Radeon RX 6600.
