After loads of rumors and leaks concerning the Radeon RX 7600 GPU have circulating the web for a number of months, we lastly have official affirmation from AMD about its existence.
In accordance with a report from VideoCardz (opens in new tab), throughout the Q1 2023 earnings name, AMD CEO and President Dr. Lisa Su affirmed that the producer will lastly have an replace in regards to the RX 7600 and different Radeon 7000-series GPUs. Confirming that the RX 7900 XTX GPUs noticed sturdy gross sales within the first quarter, Su acknowledged that the corporate is on observe to increase its “RDNA 3 GPU portfolio with the launch of recent mainstream Radeon 7000 sequence GPUs this quarter.”
Her assertion almost certainly confirms the 7700 and 7600 GPUs, although there’s no indication that AMD can be asserting or releasing some other fashions anytime quickly. Nevertheless, a Redditor (opens in new tab) managed to avoid wasting a pull request for ROCm software program that signifies unreleased GPU fashions. A type of fashions contains an RX 7500 which, if true, can be a real low-end chip choice that would severely undermine Nvidia.
Regardless, it’s excellent news that we’ll be seeing extra inexpensive GPUs from the corporate, contemplating all of the expensive high-end fashions within the wild.
May hit Nvidia the place it hurts
This era is witnessing a weird development when it comes to GPU choices in that now we have solely now begun to see even mid-range choices popping out, due to Nvidia’s just lately launched GeForce RTX 4070 and the much-rumored RTX 4060 Ti and 4060.
It seems like common players have been left within the mud, with the present choices being far too costly for the common purchaser. Particularly since most had been unable to get in on the 3000-series GPUs due to crypto miners shopping for up and scalping them for a lot of the earlier era. And although it’s too late for Staff Crimson to one-up Staff Inexperienced when it comes to releasing a mid-range choice first, it will probably not less than beat the opposition when it comes to pricing.
There’s a serious rumor that AMD will make the official announcement for the RX 7600 throughout Computex 2023, which might be the proper alternative to undercut Nvidia. In the event that they had been to decrease the worth of the RX 7600 by even $100, although ideally extra, it might give players trying to improve their outdated chips an enormous incentive to spend money on that GPU.
And if Staff Crimson releases a very inexpensive low-end RX 7500, then that will completely clench the victory over Staff Inexperienced for this era.
