AMD's RX 6750 GRE Cards

AMD’s RX 6750 GRE Cards Compete with RTX 4060 but Aren’t Available in the West

AMD has formally unveiled two Radeon RX 6750 Golden Rabbit Edition graphics cards after months of rumors. Similar to the RX 7900 GRE, these cards will only be sold to do-it-yourself (DIY) customers in China, according to rumors from Videocardz, though it’s possible that OEM devices in Western markets will also use them.

Although these cards officially celebrate the Chinese Year of the Rabbit, their real purpose is to use up AMD’s excess Navi 22 silicon, which is not always a bad thing. The 12GB RX 6750 variant is priced at $289. In terms of price and performance, Navi 22 is still a solid performer, rivaling Nvidia’s $299 RTX 4060, much as the currently available RX 6700 XT successfully competes in the $300–330 price range.

The RX 6750 GRE 12GB has 40 Compute Units, a boost frequency of 2,581 MHz, 230 W of Total Board Power (TBP), and 12 GB of 16 GB/s memory with a 192-bit memory interface. These characteristics are quite similar to those of the RX 6700 XT, with the TBP’s game clock increasing by 15MHz while staying otherwise the same.

The close resemblance to commercially offered RX 6700 units could confuse some customers. The new cards, however, provide marginally greater performance at a cheaper price, which is reasonable if they were available outside of Asia.

The RX 6750 GRE’s restricted global availability is primarily due to AMD’s own RX 7600, which has a $269 price tag. If the 6750 GRE cards were similarly priced in Western regions, the RX 7600 would lose its attraction and its sales would probably decline. The RX 7600’s performance disadvantage is that Navi 22 variants are not much outperformed by it, if at all. Additionally, it has an 8GB memory limit and a 128-bit bus, which are not particularly competitive for a graphics card from 2023. At $199, it would be worthwhile to take this into account.

Once Navi 22 inventories run out, it’s probable that devices like the RX 7650 XT or RX 7700 will start to appear. These hypothetical cards might employ a Navi 32 GPU that has been further scaled back, perhaps with 10GB of VRAM and a 160-bit bus, with an eye towards a lower $300 price point. A Golden Dragon Edition also seems likely given that 2024 is the Chinese Year of the Dragon.
