Last year when I took a look at the Sapphire Pulse RX 7600 I was impressed with Sapphire’s design which while not as small as the reference AMD design was still compact where most other aftermarket cards weren’t. That seems to be the same this time around with the launch of the RX 7600 XT and Sapphire sent over their new Pulse RX 7600 XT OC. It looks to have a similar compact design which should be a lot smaller than the XFX RX 7600 XT that I already took a look at, so I am excited to see if that is the case and find out how well it performs. The RX 7600 XT is targeted at 1080p performance and has doubled up on the VRAM of the original RX 7600 along with higher clock speeds. 1080p is still the most used resolution with 59% of Steam users using it, why spend even more for a high-end video card if you won’t be able to take advantage of the extra power? Today I’m going to find out if the Sapphire Pulse RX 7600 XT OC is the new sweet spot card, let’s dig in and find out!

Before getting into testing I did also run GPUz to double-check that our clock speeds match up with the specifications. The Pulse RX 7600 XT OC has its boost clocks set at 2810 MHz which is in line with what Sapphire has in their specifications. The stock clock speed of the RX 7600 XT is 2755 MHz so this is an overclocked card and the XFX Qick319 RX 7600 XT Black that I already took a look at was also an overclocked card with the same 2810 Mhz clock speed as the Pulse. GPUz shows the driver I tested with which was the pre-release 23.40.01.15 driver but I did also last minute test with the launch driver to get Blender testing done as well. GPUz also documents our BIOS version for future reference as well in case that is needed.
