Advanced Micro Devices Announces New GPUs for Gamers

AMD Introduces the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 16GB and AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB GPUs

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has recently unveiled its latest GPUs, specifically designed for gamers who want to stay ahead of the game in 2024. The newly launched AMD Radeon 7600 XT 16GB and AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB are catered towards the middle and low-end segment of the gaming market, targeting individuals who have not upgraded their gaming hardware in quite some time. These impressive GPUs were showcased at CES 2024, the renowned technology trade show held in Las Vegas.

Interestingly, AMD reported that a significant 50% of PC gamers are not having a satisfactory gaming experience due to their inability to run demanding games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, Starfield, and Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora at an optimal 60 frames per second in 1080p resolution.

“The new GPUs from AMD offer up to 1.9 times faster gaming and raytracing performance compared to the GeForce RTX 2060 in select games at 1080p,” stated an AMD representative.

These GPUs have the capability to display games in 1440p resolution while also delivering remarkable processing power for AI and content creation purposes. Both the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 16GB and AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB consist of 32 compute units and ray accelerators, along with 64 AI accelerators and 2,048 stream processors. However, the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 16GB runs at a higher clock speed of 2.47 GHz compared to the 2.25 GHz clock speed of the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB. The 16GB variant of the GPU also boasts twice the amount of graphics memory.

When it comes to power consumption, the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 16GB consumes up to 190 watts, while the AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB consumes up to 165 watts. AMD assures that these GPUs will greatly enhance the gaming experience for titles like Starfield, with the ability to play at 60 frames per second in 1440p resolution or achieve similar results.

“We are thrilled to announce that the AMD Radeon 7600 XT will be available for purchase starting January 24 at a price of $329. The AMD Radeon 7600 XT 8GB will be released in May, with a price tag of $269,” said an AMD spokesperson.

Furthermore, AMD has also made improvements in terms of encoding, video quality, streaming, and OBS optimizations. The company has prioritized advancements in AI applications such as Stable Diffusion and Cinebench, resulting in a faster and more efficient experience.

AMD Ryzen 8040 Series Processors

Aside from the GPUs, AMD is also launching the AMD Ryzen 8040 Series processors. These processors integrate neural processing units based on AMD XDNA, as well as central processing units based on the Zen 4 architecture. The AMD Ryzen 8040 Series processors are set to become the world’s first desktop processors with a dedicated AI engine, boasting a combined 39 TFLOPs of processing power. AMD emphasizes that the AI processing capabilities will significantly improve performance, security, efficiency, and future costs.

Currently, there are over 100 experiences that have been specifically optimized for Ryzen AI, as stated by AMD.

“The AMD Ryzen 8000G Series Processor delivers the fastest desktop PC graphics in the world. Paired with the Radeon 700M Series graphics, games run much more smoothly. For instance, Hitman 3 runs four times faster compared to a similar Intel Core i7-14700K processor with Intel graphics,” stated AMD.

AMD asserts that it already holds a leadership position in AI processing on the client side when compared to Intel. Data from the AMD Core Ultra 7 155H indicates that the AMD Ryzen 7 8840U is 1.43 times faster in terms of Yolov8, 1.79 times faster in Deeplabv3, and 1.04 times faster in MobileNetv3, when compared to the Core Ultra 7 155H. In terms of gaming capabilities, the Ryzen 7 8840U with Radeon 780M graphics performs at speeds ranging from 1.02 to 1.6 times faster than the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H with Intel Arc graphics.

Lastly, AMD has introduced the 5000 Series Ryzen processor family for AM4, with a specific focus on gaming. The prices for these processors range from $125 to $249, providing gamers with various options to choose from.
