So far, there are no reports of the same problem with the Radeon RX 7600 produced by AMD’s partner companies.

As reported by TechPowerUp, this problem is on the 6+2 pin power cable, where the two different parts are prevented from fully fitting due to the backplate design of AMD’s reference Radeon RX 7600.

The fault does not happen with an 8-pin connector. About 20% of the sources tested by TechPowerUp are not compatible with AMD’s new GPU. This type of problem is, to say the least, curious, since these connectors have been on the market for many years.
