AMD announces Radeon RX 7600 desktop graphics card for $269

The RX 7600 is, in many ways, a third of a card compared to the flagship RX 7900 XTX. It has a third of the compute units and ray accelerators at just 32, a third of the stream processors at 2048, a third of the texture units at 128, the Infinity Cache has been reduced to a third to 32MB, and the video memory has also been reduced to a third to just 8GB GDDR6. The new card has a boost frequency of 2655MHz and an average game frequency of 2250MHz.

The 8GB GDDR6 memory is clocked at 18Gbps but with only 128-bit memory bus, which gives it a bandwidth of 288GB/s. AMD claims the RX 7600 offers 29% higher performance than the RX 6600 and 34% higher performance than the RTX 3060 8GB on average at 1080p.

Other features include AV1 encode and decode support, HDMI 2.1 (48Gbps), and DisplayPort 2.1 (54Gbps). There is no USB-C on this model. The card has a total board power of 165W and works off a single 8-pin connector.

The RX 7600 starts at $269 and will be available directly from AMD on as well as from board partners, including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, Sapphire, PowerColor, Vastarmor, XFX and Yeston starting May 25.
