AMD’s new $269 Radeon RX 7600 GPU targets the 1080p ‘sweet spot’

From The Verge: AMD has unveiled the Radeon RX 7600, a $269 entry-level graphics card powered by the company’s RDNA 3 architecture. Announced on Wednesday, the RX 7600 is designed to hit 60fps while running games at 1080p, providing an affordable GPU option for gamers who aren’t chasing 4K performance.

This is the first desktop GPU in the Radeon RX 7000 lineup with a price below $300 — not only is it cheaper than the $329 RX 6600 at launch, but VideoCardz reports, and The Verge’s own Tom Warren confirms, that AMD cut the price at the last minute from a $299 figure originally shared with press and influencers. That updated pricing probably isn’t a coincidence considering AMD revealed the Radeon RX 7600 just days after Nvidia announced the $299 RTX 4060, which is similarly positioned for the 1080p market, along with the $399 4060Ti.

The RX 7600 will be available starting tomorrow, May 25th, and features 32 compute units, 8GB of GDDR6 RAM, a 2.25GHz base clock, a 2.66GHz boosted clock, and draws 165W of power. That’s remarkably close to the RX 6600 XT and considerably cheaper than its $379 launch price.
