Review: AMD RX 7600, a good surprise ?


1080p and 1440p gaming performance:

We decided to select six games because they seem to be representative enough. We have opted for DirectX12 and Vulkan with the following games:

  • The Division 2 (DirectX 12)
  • Borderlands 3 (DirectX 12)
  • Red Dead Redemption II (Vulkan)
  • Far Cry 6 (DirectX 12)
  • Watch Dogs: Legion (DirectX 12)
  • Cyberpunk 2077 (DirectX12)

We have chosen to use the benchmarks integrated in these different games.
Why do we do this? Simply to allow you to compare your results with ours if you also have a copy of one of these games. It’s a thought that seemed relevant to us and that will allow you to compare your results with ours.

As we mentioned on page 4 of this article, we have activated the Resizable Bar in the BIOS, which is now supported by all (recent) GPUs. Finally, we have chosen only 1080p and 1440p resolutions, which is what you should expect from these cards.

The Division 2:

The Division 2 game will be tested under DirectX 12. As far as graphics settings are concerned, they will be set to ” ultra ” mode with vertical synchronization disabled.

First game and if it is quite logical to see our AMD RX 7600 in front of the RX 6600 XT, we can also see that our sample of the day does better than the two Intel Arc cards in 1080p. In 1440p, it is equal to the Arc A770 model. We will keep an eye on the results in the next games.

Borderlands 3:

For the second game, we switch to Borderlands 3. The graphic options are set to ” Brutal “. It is important to know that Borderlands 3 is quite greedy and that this choice of settings has a strong impact on the FPS. It is a game that is often praised in the announcements of new graphics cards and precisely in this Brutal mode.

The performance here is excellent with our AMD RX 7600 outperforming the RTX 3060 Ti in both definitions. Now, we know that Borderlands 3 is in favor of the AMD cards.

Red Dead Redemption 2:

Third game and not the least, Red Dead Redemption II on PC. The advantage of this opus is to offer the possibility to test the integrated benchmark under Vulkan. We opt for the graphics options in ” ultra “.

Third game and not the least, RDR2 offers the possibility to test the integrated benchmark under Vulkan. The performances are once again identical to what we have already encountered.

Far Cry 6:

Far Cry 6 supports the DXR as well as the SFR proposed by AMD. We will also find it on the next page. For our benchmarks, we opted for an ” ultra” graphic quality.

Even though this game showed an advantage for the RX 6000 cards, our AMD RX 7600 once again comes out perfectly and once again dominates the RX 6600 XT but also and above all the two Intel GPUs.

Watch Dogs Legion:

Last but not least, Watch Dogs Legion which will also be used for our tests with Ray Tracing. For our benchmarks, we have opted for a graphic quality in ” very high”.

In the Watch Dogs Legion benchmark, we are forced to set the graphics quality to “very high” and not to “ultra” because the benchmark then tells us that the 8 GB of memory is not enough.

Cyberpunk 2077:

This is a game that we wanted to add for a while and now it’s done since it has an integrated benchmark. We will also use this game for our tests with Ray Tracing. For our benchmarks, we have opted for an “ultra” graphic quality.

New and last benchmark of this panel of games. In 1080p, an average of 85.6 FPS is reached, which is excellent for an Ultra graphics quality. In 1440p, things get a bit more complicated but our AMD RX 7600 is not so far from the RX 6700 XT.

The gaming average:

For the gaming average, it is the RTX 3060 that acts as the reference card in 1080p while it is the RTX 3070 in the 1440p definition. The other cards score either higher or lower depending on their performance against this model.

These results are excellent for this AMD RX 7600, which performs almost 30% better than the identical version of the previous generation. In comparison to the RX 6600 XT, the gain is visible and even if we don’t have the RX 6650 XT at our disposal, there is no doubt that our AMD RX 7600 would have been equal. It is also worth noting that our sample is ahead of the two Intel GPUs, whether in 1080p or 1440p.
