AMD Announces the Radeon RX 7600XT with 16GB memory

Radeon RX 7600XT annoucned at CES 2024 with 16GB VRMA

AMD has announced a new graphics card under its RDNA 3 portfolio – Radeon RX 7600XT. The RX 7600 XT is marketed as a 1080p/1440p gaming card. It also takes advantage of technologies like FSR 3 frame generation in supported games, AMD Fluid Motion Frames across nearly all DirectX 12 and DirectX 11 titles, and the expanded AMD HyperRX performance enhancement.

Based on the same Navi 33 GPU as in RX 7600. However, the RX 7600 had already used a max 32 CU on Navi 33 GPU. RX 7600XT doesn’t increase the CUs but doubles the memory and increases the clock speeds.

Given that AMD Radeon RX 7600 maxes out the Navi 33 silicon, the RX 7600XT doesn’t feature any extra Compute Units, Stream Processors or AI accelerators. It implemented two significant modifications: doubling the memory size to 16 GB and elevating the clock speeds.

The 16 GB memory configuration operates on the same 128-bit wide memory bus as the 8 GB variant of the RX 7600. The memory speed remains consistent at 18 Gbps GDDR6-effective, resulting in an unaltered memory bandwidth of 288 GB/s. The primary alterations pertain to the GPU clock speeds and power limits.

The Game Clock of the RX 7600 XT has been set at 2.47 GHz, a notable increase from the 2.25 GHz found in the RX 7600. Simultaneously, the maximum Boost Clock has been raised to 2.76 GHz, surpassing the 2.66 GHz of its predecessor.

To accommodate these enhancements and optimize boost clock residency, AMD raised the total board power (TBP) to 190 W, up from 165 W in the RX 7600. Consequently, custom-designed RX 7600 XT graphics cards will now feature two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, or a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin, in contrast to the RX 7600, which utilized a single 8-pin connector.

RX 7600XT Performance

The performance isn’t particularly exciting but given that it is AMD, we will see them dropping the price pretty soon and become a very viable card in the 300$ (30,000 INR) price range.

According to AMD, the RX 7600XT is 12% faster than the RTX 4060 in 1440p on average. However, it falls short of RTX 4060 in terms of ray tracing by a few per cent, which is quite negligible.

Compared to the RX 7600 at 1080p max settings and with FSR2/FSR3, the RX 7600XT is about 15% faster on average. At 1440p, it is about 13% faster on average.

Since these are first-party benchmarks, they cannot be taken at face value. However, we can expect at least a 10-12% improvement compared to RX 7600.

RX 7600XT Price in India and Availability

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT is scheduled for release on January 24, 2024. AMD has established the baseline price for the RX 7600 XT at $329. RX 7600XT price in India will be approximately 32,000 INR.

Compared to RX 7600, it is about 21% more expensive. Given the performance expectations, RX 7600XT might not get a lot of buyers.
