AMD to plug major gap in RDNA 3 lineup with new RX 7600 XT graphics card
It looks like AMD’s launching a new graphics card this January, the Radeon RX 7600 XT
It looks like AMD’s planning to launch a new RDNA 3 graphics card. This new SKU will be the Radeon RX 7600 XT. AMD’s finally plugging the performance and pricing gap between their Radeon RX 7600 and RX 7700XT!
Currently, the specifications of AMD’s new graphics card are unknown. However, thanks to Benchlife we know that AMD plans to launch the GPU on the week of January 22nd 2024. The graphics card will likely compete with Nvidia’s RTX 4060 and RTX 4060 Ti, and if AMD offer gamers more VRAM than their rival, we expect AMD’s new GPU to sell like hot cakes.
When AMD launches their Radeon RX 7600 XT, the company will not be releasing an MBA (Made By AMD) GPU models. This graphics card will only be made by AMD’s partners in custom forms. That means that we can expect new graphics cards from the likes of Sapphire, XFX, ASUS, Gigabyte, and other AMD partners.
Possible Radeon RX 7600 XT specifications
The specifications of AMD’s next RDNA 3 GPU have not been revealed. What we will be talking about here is just speculation. We expect AMD’s new graphics card to feature either 10GB or 12GB of GDDR6 memory. This would allow AMD to offer more VRAM than Nvidia’s competing RTX 40 series GPUs.
AMD’s RX 7600 features 32 Compute Units (CUs) and RX 7700XT features 54 Compute Units. Assuming that AMD doesn’t also have a Radeon RX 7700 non-XT in the works, our guess is that the RX 7600 XT will feature around 40 Compute Units. This would make the RX 7600XT an RDNA 3 replacement for the RX 6700XT.
With 10GB or 12GB of VRAM, we expect AMD’s new GPU to utilise the company’s Navi 32 silicon. AMD did not leave any of their Navi 33 silicon untapped with their Radeon RX 7600. That means that any higher-end GPU below AMD’s Radeon RX 7700 XT will need to use Navi 32 silicon with a lot of disabled CUs. We do not expect AMD to create new RDNA 3 GPU silicon for their RX 7600XT graphics card.
