During CES 2024, AMD presented ASRock’s RX 7600 XT, providing an initial glimpse with a single image of the card. Now, ASRock has revealed more pictures and detailed specifications as the curtain is lifted.
The RX 7600 XT serves as a high-end version of the RX 7600, crafted for superior 1080p gaming with enhanced resolution textures. Driving this card is the Navi 33 XT GPU, boasting a core count identical to its existing non-XT counterpart. The key improvement lies in a boosted memory capacity of 16GB, although it remains limited by a 128-bit memory bus.
Bridging the gap between the $270 RX 7600 and the $450 RX 7700 XT, the RX 7600 XT effectively addresses the price disparity in this widely popular market segment. Intriguingly, it surpasses its pricier counterpart, the RX 7700 XT, in memory with its 16GB configuration. This mirrors a scenario GPU enthusiasts faced with the release of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB, which boasted higher memory capacity than the RTX 4070 series at launch, with the key distinction that the RX 7600 XT is significantly more affordable.
ASRock has endowed both models with factory overclocking and two distinct cooling solutions. The Steel Legend, a recent addition to the company’s design lineup, showcases a triple-fan cooler complemented by understated RGB illumination positioned behind the fans. In contrast, the Challenger is tailored as a budget-friendly variant, incorporating a dual-fan design with minimalistic lighting effects and a slightly lower GPU frequency.
The ASRock RX 7600 XT Steel Legend OC boasts game and boost clocks of 2539/2810 MHz, whereas the Challenger OC is set to ship with clocks of 2516/2799 MHz. This represents approximately a 3% and 2% increase in clocks compared to AMD’s reference specifications. Both cards draw power from dual 8-pin connectors, and ASRock has not indicated any alterations to the default Total Board Power (TBP) configuration of 190 watts.
ASRock has not disclosed the pricing for their cards, but it’s reasonable to anticipate the Challenger making its debut with an AMD MSRP of $329, while the Steel Legend is expected to carry a slightly higher price. Both models are scheduled for launch next week on January 24th.
