As the mid-range GPU market continues to heat up, AMD prepares its latest competitor, the AMD Radeon RX 7600. After a slew of leaks and rumors, a brand new GPU-Z screenshot practically tells us about all of its new features, showing off its specifications and power. We now know everything there is to know about the GPU outside of its price tag, so let’s take a closer look.
AMD Radeon RX 7600: Spec Rundown
The AMD Radeon RX 7600’s specs reveal a mid-range beast, all set to match perfectly with Nvidia’s upcoming RTX 4060 Ti GPU. Based on the screenshot, we can see the Radeon RX 7600 offers 32 CU units with 2048 streaming processors. It’s a marked improvement from the last generation’s Radeon 6600, with its 28 CUs and 1792 streaming processors.
Moving on to the GPU’s other specs, things match up well with the leaked specs we’ve seen. As expected, the GPU will offer 8GB of GDDR6 memory at a speed of 18Gb/s as its 288GB/s of memory bandwidth puts it on level ground with the Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti. We also expect the Radeon RX 7600 to feature 32MB of Infinity Cache, ala its predecessor, as Nvidia’s option has comparable specs.
When it comes to speeds, the Radeon RX 7600 comes in at clock speeds of 1720Mhz, 2250Mhz, and 2655MHz. We can safely assume that these numbers are meant for base, game, and overclocked modes. On top of this, we can probably expect even higher possible clock speeds, afforded by improved thermals. Once again, this puts it in line with Nvidia’s offerings in the 2500 MHz range.
On the more technical end of things, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 will use a die named Navi 33 XL, built on TSMC’s 6nm node. It’s definitely a cost-cutting measure from AMD, as leaks claim a larger Navi 33 XT die is available. If it does come to fruition, we can expect to see it on a Radeon RX 7600 XT card, combatting the 16GB variant of Nvidia’s RTX 4060 Ti inbound for July.
For the most part, AMD’s Radeon RX 7600 is shaping up to be a worthy competitor to Nvidia’s offerings this time around. The biggest question mark surrounding the Radeon RX 7600 is still its potential price tag. Considering how close the specs are this time around, the big deciding factor for most users will inevitably come down to which offers the best bang for your buck.
Nvidia’s vanilla 4060 GPU will go for $299(Rs. 24,780), so ideally, AMD will want to undercut them with a lower price tag. On the other hand, the Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti 8GB will be going for $399 (Rs. 33,068), and with the Radeon RX 7600’s predecessor, the Radeon RX 6600, selling for $329 (Rs.27,266), we can expect another hefty price undercut there too. Keep in mind prices in India are always on the higher side, so we will have to wait for the official launch price.
Regardless, things are certainly heating up within the mid-range GPU market! Nvidia officially unveiled their entire 4060 families of GPUs just a few days ago, and with the Radeon RX 7600 launching on the 25th of May, we’re eager to see how both product lines match up.
