The official word from AMD suggests its newest mid-range Radeon RX 7600 GPU is set to be released on May 25th. This RX 7600 release time arrives ahead of the expected June timeline for AMD’s new graphics cards and on the heels of the newest 40-series offering out of Nvidia, the RTX 4060 Ti.

Retailer listings of the AMD Radeon RX 7600 are already hitting shelves on May 25th, while both tech influencers concur with this date.

The official launch news conflict with earlier rumors suggesting that AMD’s upcoming mid-rangers, the Radeon RX 7800, RX 7700, and RX 7600, wouldn’t debut until June. However, it now seems that the Radeon RX 7600 might jump the queue and grace the market a bit sooner and even at a cheaper price.

RX 7600 Time Release Leaks

Information from leakers @harukaze5719 and Moore’s Law is Dead has been proven close to correct following the official AMD report. The Radeon RX 7600 will be released on May 25th at an MSRP of $269, down a bit from its original $299 price tag, which might just be a power move on AMD’s part in aggressively structuring its pricing against Nvidia. Store shelves will begin to see the card on its official release date, May 25th, most likely around 9 AM to 10 AM EST, or 6 AM to 7 AM PST.

It seems highly likely that we can expect the Radeon RX 7600 to make a strong debut this May. This would be an exciting development for those looking for a powerful mid-range GPU option. Of course, we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from AMD to be sure. Until then, these leaks give us a good idea of what to anticipate in the coming weeks.

Press samples are already proving to excite the masses following the review embargo, with specs that seem to sit specifically around 1080p 60fps for most games. Power consumption is all but a mere 165W, with VRAM at 8GB and a 128-bit bus. The first reviews have already been released today, May 24th, with the newest RDNA 3 card proving to be an exciting new offering in the face of Nvidia GeForce RTX 40-series GPUs. 

Those excitedly awaiting the card for purchase can expect it to debut in the early morning on May 25th across various retailers. 


Can I preorder the RX 7600?

The official announcement from AMD was dropped on May 25th. It’s advisable to keep a close eye on AMD’s official channels for the most accurate and timely information. However, as of now, AMD hasn’t officially announced any preordering details for the Radeon RX 7600.

What time does AMD 7600 will go on sale?

AMD’s previous releases typically commence around 9 a.m. EST. So, if everything follows the same path, the RX 7600 should be launched around 9 a.m. EST on May 26th. However, keep in mind that there’s no confirmed information regarding the specific launch time of the Radeon RX 7600.
