Just when you thought GPU names couldn't get any more confusing, AMD release two new RX 6750 GRE variants that have the same name but fall under different performance tiers. The GPUs launched exclusively in China on October 18, targeting the sub-$300 market segment. Both are based on the previous-gen RDNA 2 architecture and look a lot like the RX 6700 cards under disguise.
While Nvidia's RTX 4060 Ti 16GB and 8GB cards have identical specifications apart from VRAM, the AMD RX 6750 GRE SKUs have differences in other areas—very much like an XT vs non-XT comparison. The naming convention adds to the confusion as one would assume equal specs from cards that share a name.
The RX 6750 GRE 12GB variant is equipped with the Navi 22XT GPU and boasts 2560 stream processors, while the 10GB version is based on Navi 22 with 2304 stream processors. Other differences include clock speeds, power consumption, and memory configurations.
AMD has provided pricing information for both the US and Chinese markets. The RX 6750 GRE 12GB is expected to be available at a price of $289, while the RX 6750 GRE 10GB is anticipated to launch at $269. These cards are likely to be targeted at the Chinese market initially and will be OEM-only in other regions. It is expected that various custom models will be introduced by manufacturers such as PowerColor and Sapphire. Gigabyte is already accepting orders for the their Eagle and Gaming models.
Redundant SKUs and odd naming conventions aside, the cards should offer serious value as they appear to be on equal footing with RX 6700 XT and RX 6700. The stream processor counts and memory configurations are exactly the same, with a minor difference in power consumption between the RX 6750 GRE 10GB and RX 6700. The RX 6700 XT has an MSRP of $479 but sells for $320 at the moment, making the RX 6750 GRE 12GB excellent value at $289. If these cards ever reach the Western market, it could be an attractive alternative to the RTX 4060 and RX 7600 at the low end.
