More discreet and less ambitious than NVIDIA, AMD doesn't have much new graphics ammunition to offer at the start of the year.

CES in Las Vegas is a particularly rich event in terms of hardware announcements. Dedicated to consumer electronics, the Nevada show is a prime venue for all manufacturers, especially those of PC hardware. And yet, while NVIDIA presented three new graphics cards, AMD was shy at the start of 2024. To complete its RDNA 3 catalog (named after its latest graphics architecture), the American brand is only releasing one graphics card.

Called the Radeon RX 7600 XT, it also differs from the new NVIDIA offering in terms of its target market: this is a more entry-level model, whereas the GeForce RTX 40 SUPER series are more geared towards the mid/high end of the market. The Radeon RX 7600 XT is the big sister of the Radeon RX 7600, which has been available for several months now. In terms of main features, it's even closer to its twin: same number of stream processors (2048), same number of compute units (32), same memory interface (128-bit) and same type of on-board memory (GDDR6 @ 18 Gbps).

On the other hand, AMD has decided to boost the operating frequencies of this little world a little, with a 2.47 GHz base GPU and even 2.76 GHz boost. What's more, AMD has doubled the amount of on-board video memory, to 16 GB. The objective is clear: to make this new card a well-positioned model for 1440p gaming. The card is scheduled for release on January 24 at a price of $329, i.e. 60 more than the RX 7600. We don't have the equivalent in euros, but the question is whether gamers looking for a small, "inexpensive" card will be willing to pay something like 340 or 350 euros? We hope so for AMD, of course.
