CES 2024 is the gift that keeps on giving, as we now have the confirmed AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT release date, price, and specs. AMD wants to stay a relevant competitor in the mid-range gaming graphics card scene, and by the looks of things, the RX 7600 XT is a step in the right direction. Following the announcement of the Nvidia RTX 40 Super lineup, AMD quickly retaliated with the unveiling of its own GPU refresh. Quoted as “Ready to take on 1440p”, in this article we’ll delve into the confirmed specs and official pricing of the RX 7600 XT ahead of its release later this month.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT specs table

The RX 7600 XT is the latest XT variant to be launched by AMD, and its refreshed specs position it as a generous upgrade over its predecessor, the RX 7600. The most notable improvements come in the form of the game and boost clock speeds, which have increased to 2.47 GHz and 2.76 GHz from 2.25 and 2.66 GHz respectively. Furthermore, it holds the position of having twice the memory capacity, with its 16GB towering over the 8GB of the base RX 7600. For a mid-range card, this is an impressively high number, and AMD often emphasizes this feature and stresses the value of having enough VRAM on your gaming experience. This is essentially what AMD is pulling on as the RX 7600 XT’s main advantage, with its higher memory having the ability to deliver higher performance at max settings with ray tracing for games running at 1080/1440p.

However, the decision to stick with Navi 33 as opposed to implementing Navi 32 has imposed a few limitations on this refreshed GPU. We’re seeing an increase in power consumption but with specs that are capped at the same 32 Compute Units and 2048 Stream Processors as the RX 7600, and the maintaining of the 128-bit memory bus, just like the RX 7600. Despite this, it’s clear that RX 7600 XT is still a force to be reckoned with, that soars through AAA titles at 60 FPS at 1080p, and even reaches to heights of 1440p in games that will allow it. For a mid-range card, the RX 7600 XT stands as a future-proof choice, and can get you to 1440p with a price that’s under $400.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT price

Given the competitive landscape and recent pricing trends in the GPU market, AMD has managed to price its Radeon RX 7600 XT at $329, an MSRP that’s just $60 more expensive than the RX 7600. As AMD’s latest mid-range offering, this card will aim to provide an attractive option for gamers seeking high performance without completely breaking the bank. With a sweet balance between the price and value, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT can give tough competition to Nvidia graphics cards like the RTX 4060. Of course, the card will be available from not just AMD directly, but also from board partners including Acer, ASRock, Asus, Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, and XFX.

When is the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT release date?

The RX 7600 XT was speculated to have a launch over CES 2024, scheduled over 9-12 January 2024, and AMD has finally given us an official release date for when the card will hit the shelves. Lining up with earlier rumors from Videocardz, it’s confirmed that the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT will be released at the end of the month, on the 24th of January 2024. As mentioned earlier, the card will cost $329, putting it $60 more expensive than the RX 7600 and $30 pricier than the cheapest RTX 4060.

Conclusion

AMD’s latest mid-range refresh, the Radeon RX 7600 XT, has captured the imagination of gamers and tech enthusiasts, promising a blend of performance, affordability, and cutting-edge features. Now that we’ve got the official specs, release date, and pricing of this GPU, it’s clear that AMD has its eyes set on success, landing into 2024 with a strong first release. However, we’ll have to wait until January 24th to weigh in on the real-world performance, and further debate whether or not it’s a worthy upgrade over the RX 7600.
