Rumor has it that the AMD Radeon RX 7600 desktop graphics card will be released later this month. There have been numerous leaks suggesting that AMD board partners are actively preparing for this launch. Recent reports indicate that ASRock is planning to release three custom variants of the RX 7600 GPU.
1. ASRock Radeon RX 7600 8GB Challenger OC (RX 7600 CL 8GO)
2. ASRock Radeon RX 7600 8GB Phantom Gaming OC (RX 7600 PG 8GO)
3. ASRock Radeon RX 7600 8GB Steel Legend OC (RX 7600 SL 8GO)
ASRock is introducing a new Steel Legend SKU, which is a first for their graphics card offerings. However, the Steel Legend SKU is already a popular option for ASRock motherboards in the mid-range category. It’s worth noting that there’s no mention of the Challenger ITX design for this release, even though it was available for the Radeon 6600 series. Interestingly, all three models are pre-overclocked, suggesting that they might be classified as non-MSRP cards. According to previous rumors, AMD plans to divide the review embargo into MSRP (and reference) and non-MSRP models, much like NVIDIA did with their GeForce RTX 4070 GPU.
If you’re a fan of GPUs, you might notice that the Radeon RX 7900 XT Taichi White is now part of this EEC update. This is a new version of the previously released Taichi SKU, which only came out last month. Additionally, the Intel Arc series is receiving a minor update with the introduction of a new Arc A380 model in a low-profile form factor.
