AMD Radeon RX 7600 XT Listed Sporting a Whopping 16GB of Memory

It seems that the rumors regarding an upcoming RX 7600 XT are accurate. Another EEC filing strongly backs Benchlife’s claims, revealing a massive 16GB frame buffer for the GPU. Other specifications remain unknown, however, it is almost certain that AMD is prepping to launch the RX 7600 XT in late January.

RX 7600 XT to Feature 16GB of Memory

As explained in our previous article, the EEC is a repository for companies to register an upcoming SKU. While the listed products are not guaranteed to see the light of day, the listing heralds an upcoming launch.

The mentioned RX 7600 XT model is from Gigabyte under the AORUS lineup. Importantly, this registration confirms that the RX 7600 XT will host 16GB of memory, which can be seen in the image. This is a massive 2x increase over the RX 7600 and 4GB more than the faster RX 7700 XT.

The RX 7600 XT is exactly what the industry demands since games require as much as 8GB even at 1080p. This situation can be seen as similar to the RTX 3060, which is still the holy grail for ‘budget’ LLM training, and AI Inference due to its relatively large VRAM capacity. Since AI performance has greatly improved with RDNA3, the 7600 XT should sell like hotcakes.

Expected Specifications

Now let’s get to the tricky part. The RX 7600 uses Navi33, which allows up to 32 CUs and a 128-bit memory interface. More on that here. The RX 7600 uses all legroom available, hosting 32 CUs and 8GB of memory over 128 bits.

  • Navi33 Specifications
  • gfx1102 (Hotpink Bonefish)
  • Monolithic
  • 16 WGP (32 legacy CUs, 4096 ALUs)
  • 2 Shader Engines / 4 Shader Arrays
  • Infinity Cache 32MB
  • 128-bit GDDR6
  • TSMC N6, ~203 mm²

For 16GB, a GPU will require a 128-bit or a 256-bit memory bus, the latter of which warrants the shift to Navi32. Do note that Navi32 is MCM-based and could be more costly to produce. This gives us several possibilities.

  • Possibility 1: Navi33, 32 CUs, 128-bit memory bus, 16GB VRAM
  • Possibility 2: Navi32, >32 CUs, 256-bit memory bus, 16GB VRAM

Which one is better? Well, Navi32 is undoubtedly the better option, at least concerning performance. The RX 7700 XT has 54 CUs, leaving behind a massive gap. Of course, Navi32 may not be cost-efficient since the RX 7600 XT should cost between $300-$350.

As for the release date, the Radeon RX 7600 XT will be announced in the last week of January. More specifically, Videocardz reports that the launch is scheduled for the 24th of January. NVIDIA has no answer to this GPU since the SUPER refresh focuses on the mid-ranged to high-end segment.
