AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT: Gigabyte's 16GB, Power-Saving Discrete Graphics Card

 

Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G is developed based on doubling the GDDR6 VRAM capacity of Radeon RX 7600.

The AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G discrete graphics card was launched by Gigabyte shortly after they introduced the Radeon RX 7600, bringing a number of upgrades. Compared to competitors such as Nvidia's RTX 4060 Super or RTX 4060 Ti Super, the Radeon RX 7600 XT OC Gaming 16G has a more accessible price, while the hardware specifications still meet the high demands of gamers and content creators.

Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G is equipped with up to 3 air cooling fans.

Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G is developed based on doubling the GDDR6 VRAM capacity of Radeon RX 7600, from 8GB to 16GB. In addition, Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC also has a GPU boost clock of up to 2,755MHz, 100MHz higher than the previous Radeon RX 7600 model.

With the higher GPU clock, the thermal design power (TDP) naturally increases, but not significantly, to 190W - only 25W more than before. Therefore, it still does not need a large cooling system like the high-end models of the Radeon RX 7900 series, which have a TDP one and a half times higher. If users are aiming for a compact PC, this is an advantage.

Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G is an upgrade of Radeon RX 7600.

Another notable point is the VRAM capacity of Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC up to 16GB. At the present time, 16GB VRAM of RX 7600 XT Gaming OC ensures enough to more than enough for all heavy games even playing at Full HD resolution (1080p) and the highest settings. Even "difficult" games like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor are requiring over 10GB VRAM for the highest settings at 1080p resolution, RX 7600 XT can still "handle" it.

In addition to the above differences, the mid-range GPU of the Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G graphics card is still Navi 33 manufactured on TSMC's 6nm technology line and operates with the PCIe 4.0 8x standard. The VRAM speed is still 18Gbps, instead of being upgraded to 20Gbps or higher to increase bandwidth.

Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G supports two custom operating modes: BIOS Overclock and BIOS Silent. Experiments show that BIOS Overclock allows this graphics card to operate at a maximum clock speed of up to 2,810MHz, while when playing games, the clock speed hovers around 2,539MHz.

Meanwhile, with BIOS Silent, the GPU Navi 33 of RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G will be clocked at 2,470MHz when playing games, and the boost clock is 2,755MHz - close to the specifications announced by the manufacturer. In both cases, the graphics card temperature does not exceed 70 degrees Celsius.

Actual photos of the Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 Gaming OC 16G show that this is a well-finished card with a high-quality cooling system and copper wires.

Tested with 3DMark, Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G gave a slightly better result than the Radeon RX 7600 version when reaching 11,941 points on the 3DMark FireStrike test (RX 7600 is 11,426 points), about 5% stronger. Particularly with the 3DMark PortRoyal Ray Tracing technology rendering test, AMD's new generation mid-range graphics card is about 9% stronger than its predecessor when reaching a score of 6,008 compared to 5,507.

In fact, with games that have been optimized by developers in collaboration with AMD for Radeon graphics cards, the performance is quite impressive. For example, the game Horizon Zero Dawn at the highest settings and Full HD resolution can reach a frame rate per second (fps) of up to three figures, 121fps. That's thanks to FSR's Frame Generation feature, which is considered a savior for many low-end and mid-range gamers.

Overall, the writer evaluates the Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Gaming OC 16G (priced around 10 million VND) as a worthy upgrade when compared to the Radeon RX 7600 (priced around 8 million VND). It is for those who need a mid-range graphics card to use for a combination of tasks such as games and rendering graphics. For gamers who only use it for the sole purpose of playing games, they may hesitate a bit about the price difference, even though they know that better products must be more expensive.
