In-Game Benchmarks

Now we finally get into the in game performance and that is the main reason people pick up a new video card. To test things out I ran through our new benchmark suite that tests 10 games at three different resolutions (1080p, 1440p, and 4k). Most of the games tested have been run at the highest detail setting and a mid-range detail setting to get a look at how turning things up hurts performance and to give an idea of if turning detail down from max will be beneficial for frame rates. In total, each video card is tested 54 times and that makes for a huge mess of results when you put them all together. To help with that I like to start with these overall playability graphs that take all of the results and give an easier-to-read result. I have one for each of the three resolutions and each is broken up into four FPS ranges. Under 30 FPS is considered unplayable, over 30 is playable but not ideal, over 60 is the sweet spot, and then over 120 FPS is for high refresh rate monitors.

So how did the Radeon RX 7600 perform? Well, it is targeted at 1080p and at that resolution, it did really well. 6 of the results were over 60 FPS, 9 were in the 120-239 range, and then CS:GO as always was up over 240 FPS. Just for comparison, yesterday's 4060 Ti launch which isn’t really direct competition with the Radeon RX 7600 had 3 over 60, 11 over 120, and 2 over 240. Moving up to 1440p the 7600 was still able to hold its own, only one of the results were in the yellow barely playable range, 10 were over 60 FPS, 4 were over 120, and 1 was over 240. Then once you hit 4k the performance really tanks. One result was unplayable at under 30 FPS and 10 were in the playable but not smooth range with just 4 over 50 FPS and 1 over 120 FPS.

Another way I have compiled all of our game results is with the overall averages. I do always skip CS: GO, its frame rates are always really high and would skew the overall averages. But I have the Radeon RX 7600’s performance at 1080p, 1440p, and 4k along with comparisons against the RTX 3060, RX 6650 XT, and the RTX 3060 Ti as well to show the cards around the RX 7600 performance-wise. At 1080p which is where AMD is targeting this card, it is up near the RTX 3060 Ti which is surprising and the RTX 3060 is way behind. The average shows again that while not designed for it, 1440p is possible as well but 4k averaged down under 60 FPS.

Of course, I have all of the actual in game results as well for anyone who wants to sort through the wall of graphs below. Most of the results just reinforce what we are seeing in the averages above, the Radeon RX 7600 is out in front of the RX 6650 XT but behind the RTX 3060 Ti in most of the results. In a few, you see it does even better like in Ghost Recon Breakpoint where it was up surprisingly close to the new RTX 4060 Ti. But there are also results like Far Cry 6 where the Radeon RX 7600 was behind the 6650 XT.
