ASRock Radeon RX 6600 XT

ASRock Radeon RX 6600 XT recently released their latest mid-range graphics card, the Radeon HD 7790. It’s currently the lowest-end card you can get with AMD’s graphics processing unit (GPU) based on their new Graphics Core Next architecture and capable of supporting AMD’s upcoming Mantle API. Let’s take a closer look at what this new offering from AMD has to offer in terms of performance, price, and availability.

What’s new in the AMD Radeon HD 7790?

The Radeon HD 7790 is a new graphics card from AMD that offers PC gamers the ability to play most titles in 1080p at 60 frames per second. It’s also the first card with a suggested price of just $149. It has 1GB of GDDR5 memory and 384 stream processors, which is a little more than enough for playing most games at 1080p resolution.

Test Setup

We had a chance to benchmark the Radeon HD 7800 series against the new Radeon HD 7800 series, and found that in most cases, the AMD Radeon HD 7770 outperformed it. When we first tested the new card, we saw that it was competitive with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost. It does appear that the AMD Radeon HD 7770 is superior for DirectX 11 gaming, but for games requiring OpenGL 4.2 or higher (which is rare), NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is more powerful.

3DMark 11 Performance Test

We put the Radeon HD 7800 series to the test using Futuremark’s 3DMark 11 benchmark suite. In a nutshell, the Radeon HD 7870’s performance is on par with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 580 and GeForce GTX 590 cards, which are both more expensive than the Radeon HD 7870. Meanwhile, the Radeon HD 7850 edges out Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 570 card in terms of performance per dollar.
