Kick-off today for the Radeon RX 7600. With this new entry-level card, AMD is targeting gamers wishing to operate in 1080p at 60 FPS, and announces, in this context, 29% more performance compared to the Radeon RX 6600.
In order not to leave too much media space to Nvidia after the launch of its GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, AMD announces its new Radeon RX 7600. Failing to match the firm’s latest chameleon, this new entry-level GPU should allow AMD to tickle the desktop RTX 4050 a little ahead of time, which should start in June.
Both cards will logically hunt in the same segment of the market. With the Radeon RX 7600, AMD’s objective is indeed to seduce gamers aiming for a gaming experience in 1080p at 60 FPS, without breaking the bank too much. To do this, the card arrives in France on May 25 at a recommended price of 299 euros.
And as usual, AMD’s industrial partners are on board: ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, Sapphire, PowerColor, Vastarmor, XFX or even Yeston will therefore be able to deliver custom versions of the RX 7600, potentially a little faster than the reference model.
Radeon RX 7600, what to expect?
Because by default, the RX 7600 doesn’t really look like a power monster. The first tests of the card thus evoke serious limitations with regard to ray tracing and difficulties in animating certain games in 1080p at 60 FPS with the highest graphics settings. Clearly, it would be mainly intended for players ready for a few concessions, or for those mainly interested in competitive and / or moderately resource-intensive games.

That said, AMD promises great things with this new Radeon. The RX 7600 is thus supposed to outperform its predecessor (the Radeon RX 6600) by 29%, in 1080p, with the highest graphic details, and all at a slightly lower price.
Equipped with the latest RDNA 3 architecture, the Radeon RX 7600 also has many more GPU cores than the RX 6600 (2048 cores via 32 RDNA3 calculation units, against 1792 RDNA2 cores previously). It also benefits from higher operating frequencies (up to 2.66 GHz), while its 8 GB of GDDR6 reaches the 18 Gbps mark according to AMD. At the same time, the RX 7600 also supports encoding with the AV1 codec and supports the DisplayPort 2.1 standard (which may not be retained by all custom models, however).
