Considering the price of graphics cardsthe question of their reliability is a sensitive subject that AMD does not take lightly.
AMD did not drag. It’s the least we can even say. Just over 48 hours after Igor’s Lab and TechPowerUp published reviews, the US company announces a change.
A backplate issue…
The Radeon RX 7600 tests were published last Wednesday and that’s when the first criticisms, issued by TechPowerUp, came up: the 8-pin connector can cause problems.
More specifically, it is the backplate of the AMD reference card that may prevent the 8-pin socket from being fully inserted. At Clubic, we did not encounter such a problem and only Igor’s Lab then went in the same direction as TechPowerUp: the concern is very specific.
It obviously only concerns AMD reference cards and occurs when not an 8-pin socket is used, but a 6+2-pin socket: the two additional pins are fixed via a small module which can integrate a protrusion from interfere with insertion.
…fixed by AMD
If AMD launched the marketing of the Radeon RX 7600 in the wake of the publication of the tests – that is, last Wednesday – it has not actually started the sale of its own cards, called MBA (made by AMD).
At TechPowerUp, the firm confirmed that a solution had been found: We are very pleased with the number of Radeon RX 7600 cards available worldwide through our partners. We expect the RX 7600 “reference design” boards to be available in the coming weeks, with a design that accepts all power cables “.
This is a problem that should therefore no longer be one when these graphics cards designed by AMD are actually marketed.
