AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Rumored To Launch on 25th May, Navi 33 GPU With 8 GB VRAM For Mainstream Gamers

AMD is rumored to launch its mainstream Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card next month which will feature the mainstream Navi 33 GPU.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Rumors: Navi 33 GPU, 8 GB VRAM, 25th May Launch & Slightly Faster Than 6650 XT

Update: Moore’s Law is Dead now states that this card should be the Radeon RX 7600, not the XT variant. The card will come in a reference AMD “MBA” flavor.

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT rumors come from Moore’s Law is Dead who seems to have got his hands on the schedule for the upcoming graphics card. Not only are the dates mentioned but few information regarding the performance and specs are also disclosed though we would advise you to take these with a grain of salt.

Starting with the dates, AMD is expected to sample the Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card to press by the mid of May, & the first reviews of the card are expected to go online on the 24th of May, just a day before launch. Like the RTX 4070, AMD will be asking the press to publish the reviews for the MSRP cards first followed by custom model reviews on the launch day. Just a few days ago, it was reported that AMD AICs might be displaying the Radeon RX 7600 series custom models by the end of May at Computex 2023.

In terms of performance, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card is expected to feature the Navi 33 GPU with RDNA 3 graphics architecture that should be able to deliver close to 10-15% graphics performance uplift over the Radeon RX 6650 XT. It is said to consume around 175W of power and while this is early silicon, it looks like the card won’t be a match to NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace graphics architecture since it produces far better results. For example, the RTX 4070 sips close to 180W and runs about the same as an RX 6800 XT and RTX 3080 in rasterization.

The card is also said to feature 8 GB of VRAM across a 128-bit wide bus interface which should be the same as its predecessor though given the recent topics surrounding how 8 GB of VRAM is not enough for most games these days, it may not look that enticing for gamers. NVIDIA has got heat too with its RTX 4060 series expected to feature 8 GB of VRAM. The clocks for this card are said to be above 2.6 GHz which is very nice and overclocked models should close in on the 3 GHz mark.

First introduced on laptops as the Radeon RX 7700 & RX 7600 series, the Navi 33 GPUs will be aiming at the budget segment with prices between the $250-$350 US range.
