AMD has announced its third RDNA 3 graphics card, the Radeon RX 7600. Based on the Navi 33 die, it’s a monolithic design fabbed on TSMC’s 6nm (N6) node. The GPU features 2,048 shaders (or cores) paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory via a 128-bit bus. The memory subsystem is backed by 32MB of L3 cache and offers an external bandwidth of 288GB/s. The GPU core has a game clock of 2.25GHz and a boost of up to 2.66GHz.
The TBP has risen by 32W, from 132W on the RX 6600 to 165W on the RX 7600. Compared to the GeForce RTX 3060, we’re looking at a gain of up to 45% and an average boost of 17%. It’s worth noting that the RX 7600 loses to the RTX 3060 in Control (RT Medium) at 1080p. Regardless, seeing as the RTX 4060 also has 8GB of VRAM, it’s looking like an even match with the Radeon getting an edge thanks to its lower MSRP.
Allowing gamers to play the latest titles at 60+ FPS at 1080p and stream in high fidelity with AV1 technology, the new graphics card offers 29% higher 1080p gaming performance on average than the AMD Radeon RX 6600 graphics card and 34% higher performance on average than the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 8GB at max settings.
The Radeon RX 7600 graphics card at US $269 hits the sweet spot for high-performance 1080p gaming. It allows users to enjoy the latest features like AV1 encoding, the AMD Radiance Display Engine and more to take their gaming, streaming and content creation projects to the next level.AMD
The Radeon RX 7600 is set to launch tomorrow at an MSRP of $269, $30 less than the RTX 4060 (yet to be launched). Earlier today, reviewers panned the RTX 4060 Ti for its smaller memory bus and minimal performance upgrade (versus the RTX 3060 Ti).
