AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT release date could be late January

It's about time.

Let's play 'Who's that Pokemon' but with AMD's latest rumoured graphics card.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT has been through the rumour mill more than once, but we might finally be closing in on its release date. The latest leak says you should set your sights on the week beginning January 22, with a particularly close eye on January 24.

The information comes from sources talking with Benchlife. Its close proximity to CES 2024 is probably no coincidence, as we expect a boat load of new tech to debut at the event. It’s not the first time we’ve heard about the graphics card. AMD was originally rumoured to release the GPU back in May, but it never saw light of day. Needless to say, nothing’s final until we see it on a physical or digital shelf.

Videocardz says we won’t get a reference design this time around, usually going by the MBA (Made by AMD) moniker. Instead, you’ll only find third-party aftermarket versions of the device with custom coolers.

It’s also possible it could come in two variants, including 10GB or 12GB of video memory. This is contrary to what we’d previously heard about 8GB.  With 32CUs and 2.6GHz. Regardless of what specs we see, AMD is restricted to no more than 2,048 cores thanks to Navi 33 limitations.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT looms at a precarious time. It’s been six months since the original RX 7600 and Moore’s Law Is Dead previously said to expect an 11% uplift over the RX 6650 XT. Considering Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti might premiere at the same time, it might be a struggle for Team Red. Still, it’ll all come down to price. It always does.
