AMD Radeon RX 7600 is finally here. It’s the newest (and also the most affordable) member of AMD’s Radeon RX 7000 series of desktop graphics cards. Besides performance upgrades over its predecessor, the RX 7600 has a lower asking price as well. Let’s learn more about AMD Radeon RX 7600, including its specs, features, availability, expected price in Nepal, and more.
AMD Radeon RX 7600: Overview
RDNA 3 architecture
As an RX 7000 series graphics card, the RX 7600 is based on AMD’s latest RDNA 3 architecture. That means it enjoys 2nd gen ray tracing cores, 2nd gen Infinity Cache, AI acceleration, AMD Radiance Display Engine, and a chiplet design for better performance.
Besides that, RX 7600 has 2,048 stream processors with base (or game) and boost frequencies of 2,250 MHz and 2,655 MHz respectively. With newer architecture, higher frequencies, more cores, and larger memory bandwidth, the new RX 7600 boasts a 29% increase in overall performance over its predecessor the RX 6600.
At the heart of AMD Radeon RX 7600 is a Navi 33 GPU with 32 compute units, 2048 stream processors, and 32 raytracing cores. It has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM with a 128-bit bus, which is the same as its competitor: the NVIDIA RTX 4060.
