But the relatively much cheaper RX 6000 is nothing new
AMD today introduced the Radeon RX 7600 for just $270, and now there are many reviews of the new product on the Web.
The RX 7600 is indeed much faster than its predecessor. Of course, the result depends on the specific game or on the set of games if we are talking about reviews, but in general in Full HD we are talking about 25%, and at 1440p the difference is even a little higher. At the same time, the card is almost 20% cheaper than the RX 6600 at launch.
If we compare the novelty with other cards, then it is slightly faster than the RX 6650 XT, and the RX 6700 XT is ahead by about 15%. The latest RTX 4060 Ti outperforms the AMD card by 25%, but it is one and a half times more expensive. The direct competitor for the RX 7600 will be the RTX 4060, but the latter will be more expensive and not the fact that it is faster, and it will only be released in July.
In general, among modern cards that are still actively sold, the RX 7600 is the most profitable in terms of price-performance ratio, and in general from the entire list, and not just in its segment.
As a result, it turns out that even among the greatly cheaper Radeon RX 6000 models, the new product looks decent. The problem is that the RX 6650 XT offers about the same thing and costs about the same, and has been around for a long time.
Then there’s the RX 6700 XT, which is noticeably faster, has 1.5 times more memory, and costs around $330 even now. Against this background, the Radeon RX 7600 does not look like something new. However, we can hope that, as in the case of the RX 7900, the RX 7600 will become significantly cheaper in the coming months.
