The AMD Radeon RX 7600 is here, with a price starting from 269 dollars. It aims at 1080p gaming, where its 8GB GDDR6 memory with 18Gbps bandwidth will be enough. What leaves a huge impression is the compact footprint, which makes it ideal for use in a tiny chassis.
The AMD Radeon RX 7600 is a mainstream product, aiming at providing a good experience at 1080p resolutions in AAA game titles. Despite the tiny dimensions of AMD’s new graphics card, it can deliver good results in 1080p even at high and ultra settings, and its 8GB GDDR6 RAM is enough at HD resolution. If you require 4K gaming, look at the RX 7900XTX and RX 7900 XT models.
The Radeon RX 7600 uses the RDNA 3 architecture, featuring 32 compute units, AI accelerators, and 2nd generation raytracing accelerators. It also features DisplayPort 2.1 and has support for AV1 encoding. I will have more details about the technologies included in this product on the following pages. One of the most important features is the DP 2.1 interface, which is included for the first time in a mainstream graphics card. This interface provides up to 54 Gbps bandwidth, supporting sky-high refresh rates and resolutions. According to AMD, from 2023, displays from leading vendors with DP 2.1 ports will be available on the market. NVIDIA’s top model, the RTX 4090, comes with DP 1.4a, so you must wait for the next generation of NVIDIA GPUs to get the upgraded DP interface.
AMD states that the total board power (TBP) of the RX 7600 starts at 165W, while the RX 6600 had a TBP of 132W. This means that along with a mid-level CPU, for example, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, the RX 7600 card’s power needs are fully covered with a good 550W PSU.
The Radiance Display Engine used by RDNA 3 supports up to four displays depending on the resolution and refresh rate.
