The other day, we reported on a potential Radeon RX 7700/7800 launch to counter NVIDIA’s Super announcement. It looks like those plans have been shelved or never existed to begin with. A report from Benchlife claims that AMD will launch the Radeon RX 7600 XT on the 22nd of January, around the same time as the RTX 4070 Ti Super. It may be the final RDNA 3 GPU to reach retail shelves ahead of the RDNA 4 release.
The Radeon RX 7600 XT is expected to be the sole Radeon release in the first half of 2024, and with most people already off for vacations, the timeline is unlikely to change. AMD already launched the GRE variants of the RX 7900 and 6750 to stay relevant in the budget-oriented segment. Apart from these, Team Red has five RDNA 3 and a bunch of older RDNA 2 GPUs retailing across most markets.
Among them, the Radeon RX 7600 XT is indeed in AMD’s product planning, and it is expected to be released in the week of January 22; At the same time, we’ll see the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super. As for the Radeon RX 7700 and Radeon RX 7800 products, according to our reliable sources, they are not currently on AMD’s existing planning list.
As explained in the previous post, ECC listings don’t always pan out. AIBs often register potential SKU names before official notifications to speed up the process. The Radeon RX 8000 “RDNA 4” GPUs should debut in the latter half of 2024.
According to rumors, the higher-end RX 8900 XT/8900 XTX has been canceled, and the RX 8800 XT will be the fastest RDNA 4 GPU with a monolithic design. It is expected to be faster than the 7800 XT but slower than the RTX 4080 Super.
