AMD’s RX 7600 graphics card is reportedly going to be making an look at Computex this yr, with rumours suggesting the Nvidia RTX 4060 Ti (opens in new tab) can be, too.
It has been a protracted anticipate a vaguely mid-range graphics card to drop on this GPU era, but it surely appears to be like like we’ll be handled to 2 when the shutters go up on the Computex commerce present in sunny-sometimes-soggy Taipei.
In reality, the Radeon RX 7600 must be nearer to the decrease finish of the market provided that it is anticipated to be sporting comparable specs to the RDNA 2 chip contained in the RX 6600 of the final era. That might put it effectively beneath the efficiency of the RTX 4060 Ti, and nearer to the eventual RTX 4060 every time that will get launched.
The information comes from Igor’s Lab (opens in new tab), the place he states there can be some AMD graphics card companions exhibiting off absolutely realised variations of the Radeon RX 7600 on the present itself. That might recommend both it is being launched throughout Computex on the finish of Could/starting of June, or it can launch simply forward of the present.
It is doable such playing cards would possibly stay unnamed ‘prototypes’ at public producer cubicles within the exhibition halls, or else be proven behind closed doorways. Sapphire, one in every of AMD’s greatest board companions, repeatedly holds closed conferences at Computex fairly than out on the present ground.
Apparently, Igor’s report takes pains to say that he is solely had affirmation of card producers who solely promote Radeon playing cards trying to exhibit completed RX 7600 playing cards at Computex, with firms used to transport each AMD and Nvidia holding off on presenting the brand new RDNA 3 playing cards.
The intimation in his assertion is that these producers are ready to see whether or not it will likely be price their whereas to really begin producing RX 7600 GPUs.

The present expectation is that the RX 7600 would have the identical specs because the cell variant already unveiled. That card comes with 28 compute items (with an RX 7600 XT sporting 32 compute items) and due to this fact 1,792 shaders. That places it squarely on the identical configuration degree because the RX 6600 (opens in new tab), however early efficiency numbers for laptops with the RX 7600 (opens in new tab) inside put them close to the identical degree as RTX 4060-based machines.
Extrapolating these figures suggests the RX 7600 would possibly find yourself performing like a desktop RX 6600 XT (opens in new tab). Although that’s to date all primarily based on the cell config, and it is completely doable that AMD might be able to provide the 3GHz+ clock speeds with the desktop playing cards that it as soon as promised for RDNA 3 playing cards, which might make it a lot faster.
The Navi 33 GPU anticipated to be on the coronary heart of the RX 7600 and any potential RX 7600 XT is completely different to the one different RDNA 3 chips we have seen to date, in that it will likely be a return to a monolithic design. The Navi 31 GPU of the RX 7900 XT/X (opens in new tab) is the primary chiplet-based graphics silicon we have seen, which introduced its personal points, and a monolithic RDNA 3 GPU must be extra easy for the AMD engineers to handle.
That would imply it is in a position to clock larger and carry out higher than these core configuration numbers would possibly recommend. However, even when it is performing on the identical degree as an RX 6700, a whole last-gen tier up, $350 goes to be the utmost AMD might realistically cost given the pricing of its last-gen playing cards (opens in new tab) in the meanwhile.
With the RTX 4060 Ti reportedly coming in sizzling at $450 (opens in new tab), this might all be excellent news for PC avid gamers, with two new tiers of next-gen playing cards arriving very quickly. As Igor’s Lab reviews, the brand new Nvidia GPU appears to be like to even be set for an finish of Could/starting of June launch, too.
