AMD reportedly cuts Radeon RX 7600 pricing ahead of launch

AMD’s Radeon RX 7600 has received a price cut to $269 ahead of launch

According to Videocardz, AMD has cut the pricing of their RX 7600 graphics card ahead of the GPU;s launch later this week, moving the GPU from $299 to $269. This prices AMD’s Radeon RX 7600 below Nvidia’s planned RTX 4060, which is due to launch next month with an MSRP of $299.  

AMD’s reference MBA (made By AMD) Radeon RX 7600 graphics card, pictured above and below, features a dual-fan heatsink design and a full cover backplate. The graphics card appears to be powered by a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and reportedly features three DisplayPort 2.1 connectors and a single HDMI 2.1 output.

In many ways, AMD’s RX 7600 appears to be more similar to AMD’s RX 6600 XT than the RX 6600 that it replaces, featuring the same memory bus size and number of compute units as AMD’s RX 6600 XT. That said, the RX 7600 features new RDNA 3 compute units, which make the RX 7600 a more advanced and capable graphics card. Beyond that, the RX 7600 features faster GDDR6 memory, and should be able to deliver more computational performance per CU than AMD’s RDNA 2 powered RX 6600 XT.

AMD reportedly cuts Radeon RX 7600 pricing ahead of launch

If the above specifications are correct, AMD’s RX 7600 will feature higher clock speeds, more (and faster) compute units, and faster GDDR6 memory than AMD’s RX 6600 graphics card. This should give AMD’s low-end GPU lineup a healthy performance boost and more value for money, should AMD maintain similar pricing to their last-generation GPU models.

AMD are reportedly launching their Radeon RX 7600 graphics cards on May 25th, one day after Nvidia’s RTX 4060 Ti launch.
