ASRock Radeon RX 7600

The Radeon RX 7600 is set to launch next week, but it is clear that we won’t be seeing as many custom designs as on GeForce RTX 4060 Ti series. Even AMD board partners are seemingly unhinged to deliver some new design ideas as they are set to announce multiple RDNA3 cards with RDNA2-era coolers.

ASRock will introduce two cards, the Phantom Gaming OC and Challenger OC. The Phantom is a triple-fan design with a 2.5-slot cooler. The Challenger, on the other hand, has two fans and a much shorter PCB. This card could have easily been a single-fan design, but in ASRock’s defense, we still do not know the official TBP for Radeon RX 7600 yet.

ASUS Radeon RX 7600

ASUS is not devoting any effort into next-gen GPU release. The company opted for their old ROG STRIX and Dual cooler designs, the almost exact copies of Radeon RX 6650 XT coolers. Believe or not, but this is actually the first ROG STRIX design for Radeon RX 7000 series, as the company did not launch any for their high-end Radeon 7900 series.

The RX 7600 Dual OC graphics card is based on the RX 6650XT design, but to be precise, there is a minor color change for one piece. One should note that ASUS introduced a wholly new DUAL series design for GeForce RTX 4060 GPUs this week, so it is quite underwhelming to see these old coolers being reused for AMD GPUs.

According to the leaks, Radeon RX 7600 non-XT is set to launch on May 24th. Each of the four cards presented here is factory-overclocked, but the details remain to be confirmed.
