Rumors suggest that AMD is gearing up to release the mainstream Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card featuring the Navi 33 GPU sometime next month.
Moore’s Law is Dead appears to have acquired a schedule for the much-anticipated AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card, which has sparked rumors about its release. While some details regarding its performance and specifications have also been disclosed, it is important to approach these rumors with caution and skepticism.

AMD is anticipated to send out samples of the Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card to the press in mid-May, with the first reviews of the card expected to be published on May 24th, just a day before the official launch. The review process will reportedly follow a similar pattern to the RTX 4070, with AMD requesting that reviews of the MSRP cards be published first, followed by custom model reviews on launch day. Additionally, recent reports have suggested that AMD AICs may unveil their own custom models of the Radeon RX 7600 series at Computex 2023 towards the end of May.
The upcoming AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card is expected to showcase impressive performance, thanks to its Navi 33 GPU and RDNA 3 graphics architecture. According to early reports, the card is predicted to offer a graphics performance boost of 10-15% when compared to the Radeon RX 6650 XT while consuming around 175W of power. However, it’s worth noting that the card’s performance may not quite match up to NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace graphics architecture, which has demonstrated superior results. For instance, the RTX 4070 draws roughly 180W of power and performs on par with both the RX 6800 XT and RTX 3080 in terms of rasterization.
According to reports, the Radeon RX 7600 XT will come equipped with 8 GB of VRAM and feature a 128-bit wide bus interface, which is the same as its predecessor. However, given the recent discussions around how 8 GB of VRAM may not be sufficient for modern games, this aspect of the card may not be particularly appealing to gamers. It’s worth noting that NVIDIA has also received criticism for its RTX 4060 series, which is also rumored to come with 8 GB of VRAM. On the bright side, the card is said to boast clock speeds surpassing 2.6 GHz, with overclocked models expected to reach speeds nearing the 3 GHz threshold.
