Game-Changing Surprise: AMD Unveils Affordable Graphics Cards with Unmatched Power for Video Games

The graphics card market is currently experiencing a highly competitive environment, with AMD, Nvidia, and even Intel offering powerful alternatives in all price ranges. A recent launch by AMD, the new RX 6750 GRE graphics cards, could have significant implications in the market and potentially convince users to switch brands.

The new range consists of two models, the RX 6750 GRE 10 GB priced at $269, and the RX 6750 GRE 12 GB priced at $289. These models, although similar to existing mid-range models in terms of characteristics, are available at a much lower price point. It is important to note that these cards are not an evolution of the Radeon RX 6700 launched two years ago, but rather the same graphics cards with small efficiency improvements due to advancements in the manufacturing process. Both models are based on the Navi 22 architecture and are designed to deliver high frame rates per second in modern games at 2K and 1080p resolutions.

The 10GB RX 6750 GRE is essentially a conventional RX 6700 with slight improvements such as a 15 MHz higher frequency and a 5W reduction in total consumption. It features 36 AMD RDNA2 computing units and 36 RT accelerators for ray-tracing. The maximum frequency is 2450 MHz, and it has a 160-bit memory bus and a power consumption of 170W. According to AMD, it performs well in games like Counterattack 2, Elden Ring, The Witcher 3, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, boasting frame rates exceeding 135 fps at 1440p.

The 12GB RX 6750 GRE, on the other hand, is a version of the RX 6700 XT with similar frequency improvements. It has 40 AMD RDNA2 compute units and 40 RT accelerators, a maximum frequency of 2581 MHz, a 192-bit memory bus, and a power consumption of 230W. According to AMD, it delivers impressive frame rates in games like Counterattack 2, Elden Ring, The Witcher 3, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, exceeding 139 fps at 1440p.

While these graphics cards may not come as a surprise to users who already own the RX 6700 or Nvidia’s alternative, the RTX 4060, they are definitely appealing to users looking to upgrade or change their equipment. These cards offer almost identical performance to more expensive models at a considerably lower price.

The main challenge with these graphics cards lies in their availability. Initially, they will only be released in the Asian market, but it is reported that some manufacturers in Europe will also offer them in pre-assembled computers. Therefore, for users in Spain, the options would be to either import them or find a store that includes them as part of a system.

Overall, the new RX 6750 GRE graphics cards from AMD present a compelling option for users in search of powerful and affordable options. While availability may be limited initially, it is expected that these cards will make a significant impact on the market and lure users to switch brands.
