The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT is being positioned as more than just another graphics card upgrade — it’s an AI-capable graphics card that might be the last word on good 1080p gaming GPUs.With 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the card has a ton of overhead to max out settings for 1080p games, while also being able to handle the raft of AI features and applications becoming available this year.

The discrete graphics card for desktop builds will feature AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution and AMD Hypr-RX with AMD Fluid Motion Frames. Hypr-RX is a single feature that combines upscaling, performance boosting, and smoothing to help prevent lag. That should help the card even push 1440p resolution, although you certainly won’t get as smooth of performance as you would by maxing out 1080p settings. AMD Fluid Motion Frames deliver higher FPS during gaming.

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT has 32 unified high-performance AMD RDNA 3 compute units, 64 AI accelerators, and a boost clock that can rev up to 2.76GHz. While gaming will still be the main purpose for these cards (maybe not so much crypto anymore!), the extra overhead will make them handy for media professionals or hobbyists curious about all the new AI features out there now. For those media folks, the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT supports AV1 encoding/decoding and enhanced video quality in AV1, AVC, and HEVC.

The 65 AI accelerators on the graphics card are expected to optimize cutting-edge AI workloads and leverage Windows DirectML technology for generative AI and upscaling operations.

The Radiance Display Engine supports next-gen DisplayPort 2.1 and HDMI 2.1a-based displays, enabling the GPU to deliver higher resolutions and refresh rates.

AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Availability

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT is expected to retail for just $329, which is an exceptional price for a high-end 1080p card with 16GB of VRAM. PCs with the AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT graphics card will hit the shelves starting January 24. They are expected come from the likes of Acer, ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, PowerColor, Sapphire, and XFX.
