ASUS and ASRock Radeon RX 7600 graphics cards exposed: Both use old radiators

AMD’s partners are gearing up for the imminent release of the mid-range graphics card based on the RDNA 3 architecture, the new Radeon RX 7600, which is slated to arrive next week. Rumor has it that the suggested retail price for the Radeon RX 7600 is $299, matching its competitor, NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 4060.

According to a report by VideoCardz, ASUS and ASRock’s Radeon RX 7600 graphics cards have both been unveiled, showing no alterations in the heat sink design. Both are using older versions, with only minor modifications in color scheme or details. ASUS’s belong to the ROG STRIX series and the Dual series, while ASRock’s are part of the Phantom Gaming series and the Challenger series.

It’s noteworthy that ASUS, with its recently launched GeForce RTX 4060 series, introduced a new exterior design that comparatively leaves AMD’s new graphics cards a tad underwhelming for gamers. Of course, these aren’t the first exposed Radeon RX 7600 graphics cards; Sapphire’s Radeon RX 7600 PULSE was revealed even earlier.

The Radeon RX 7600 graphics card comes equipped with a Navi 33 GPU, 32MB Infinity Cache, 32 CUs, 2048 stream processors, 8GB GDDR6 VRAM, and utilizes a PCIe 4.0 x8 interface. Further specifications of the new graphics card cannot yet be confirmed, though the memory bandwidth is rumored to be 128-bit, and the memory speed is speculated to be 16Gbps or 18Gbps. According to sources, its boost frequency is likely around 2655 MHz, potentially reaching close to 2850 MHz in non-public versions. Moreover, these graphics cards are fitted with just one 8Pin external power connector, ensuring that the total power consumption won’t exceed 150W (8Pin) + 75W (PCIe), likely to be even lower, presumably between 140W to 180W.
