AMD RDNA3 enters mainstream desktop
The Radeon RX 7600 is a soon-to-be released desktop 8GB model.
What we are looking at today is likely the cheapest RDNA3 GPU thus far, the Radeon RX 7600 non-XT. The card pictured is the Sapphire PULSE model, which is typically Sapphire’s affordable option compared to the NITRO series. The new PULSE is a dual-fan and dual-slot design with a black cooler and some red accents. There is no sign of the RGB lighting on this model.
The Radeon RX 7600 is based on Navi 33 GPU with 32 Compute Units (2048 Stream Processors). The packaging confirms this configuration of the GPU as well as its memory capacity of 8GB. What the box does not say are the GPU and memory clocks, as well as the memory bus. The bus is what might limit the card’s capability because it is reportedly just 128-bit wide. Furthermore, AMD Navi 33 only supports up to 8 lanes in PCIe Express 4.0 standard.
The card is confirmed to feature one 8-pin power connector, and therefore the whole card should not require more than 150W (8-pin) + 75W (PCIe). In reality, it will almost certainly require less power. Worth noting that the mobile Navi33 SKUs do not exceed 120W TGP (RX 7600M XT).
AMD Radeon RX 7600 is set to launch on May 25th. The company is yet to confirm the pricing for this card; however, we do not expect it to be above $300. The RX 7900 XT can already be found at $760-ish price and the RX 7600 does not even feature half of the core count.
