AMD introduced the AMD RX 7600 XT, a high-performance, feature-rich graphics card designed to power demanding games and content creation applications today and for years to come.
As part of the AMD Radeon RX 7000 Series, the RX 7600 XT comes equipped with support for a plethora of advanced AMD tech, including FSR 3.0 and AMD Fluid Motion Frames. You can enjoy next-level immersive gaming even on max settings at 1440p resolutions.
If you test a graphics card and maintain the graphics settings, the number of frames the card can generate each second tends to decrease in a roughly linear fashion as you increase the resolution. For example, a card that achieves 60 frames per second (fps) in a game at 1080p is likely to get something in the ballpark of 30fps at 1440p and 15fps at 4K.
The RX 7600 XT, as you might imagine, is an enhanced version of the RX 7600. It comes with the XT branding to note it’s a faster version, as well as a $60 price bump over the base model. And surprisingly, those are two of the most significant differences between the two GPUs: the name and the price.
AMD on Wednesday announced its latest graphics card — Radeon RX 7600 XT based on RDNA 3 architecture. The latest high-performance GPU from AMD is said to be capable of handling modern AAA titles at 1080p resolution with ray tracing and can also handle AI-specific tasks and the GPU is priced at $329 (approx Rs 27,347).
The big difference in specs is the memory configuration. This XT model comes with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, doubling the 8GB we see on the base model. However, AMD strangely opted to use the 128-bit memory bus on the XT model, along with the same 32MB of Infinity Cache. There’s more memory capacity here, but the overall memory interface hasn’t changed much.
The core specs are the same as the RX 7600, as both it and the RX 7600 XT use a fully enabled Navi 33 GPU. AMD couldn’t magically add more compute units to the die, and opting for Navi 32 would have entailed a much more expensive design overall. That means tweaking TBP (Total Board Power) and boosting the clocks along with doubling the amount of VRAM per channel was about the only real option.
The RX 7600 XT has a boost clock of 2755 MHz, 100 MHz higher than the RX 7600. AMD also lists a “Game Clock” that’s supposed to be a better representation of actual performance, though in most of our testing we’ve found it’s mostly just a more conservative estimate of the clocks you’ll see in the real world. Anyway, the Game Clock for the 7600 XT is 2470 MHz versus 2250 MHz on the vanilla 7600, so potentially there’s a bigger difference in performance than our above table might suggest.
The Radeon RX 7600 XT has the same 32 compute units and ray accelerators as the RX 7600 as well as the 64 AI accelerators and 2048 stream processors. Plus all of the other standard AMD RDNA3 graphics features like AV1 hardware encoding.
The most highlighted feature of the upcoming card is a 16 GB video memory buffer, as hinted by the leak. The GPU will likely take on the RTX 4060 Ti 16 GB, a similar mid-range card selling for $500.

The Radeon RX 7600 XT will have to share the spotlight come launch day, as the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Super is also expected to hit store shelves on the same day. That said, these two graphics cards target very different audiences and price points, so don’t worry about having to choose between them.
