AMD Launches the Radeon RX 7600 XT: Same as the 7600, But Twice as Much Memory

AMD today announced the Radeon RX 7600 XT with twice as much memory as the 7600 (non-XT). Targeting GeForce RTX 2060 users, Team Red claims a performance uplift of up to 1.9x with the 7600 XT. Interestingly, it is advertised as a 1440p GPU solely because of the large memory buffer. The Radeon RX 7600 XT is scheduled to launch on the 21st of January at an MSRP of $329, $60 more than the base 7600.

AMD is comparing the Radeon RX 7600 XT to the GeForce RTX 4060 across two sets of games: Titles with FSR 2/DLSS 2 and FSR 3/DLSS 3 and those with Hypr-RX support. Some titles like “Like a Dragon Gaiden” feature only FSR 3. The benchmarks are conducted with FSR 3 enabled on both GPUs in such cases.

The result is that the Radeon RX 7600 XT manages to beat the RTX 4060 across all seven cherry-picked titles with and without upscaling. Of course, none of these titles feature an intensive ray tracing pipeline, but that’s expected. AMD’s strength lies in rasterization, and it will stick to it for the foreseeable future.

Looking at the GPU specs, the Radeon RX 7600 XT gets a higher boost clock with an upper limit of 2,760MHz (versus 2,655MHz on the 7600). To accommodate this change, the TBP has been raised from 165W to 190W, 30W higher than the RX 6600 XT.
