AMD just launched a beautiful new twist on its Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card in a stunning Midnight Black hue. While the card will look great in a gaming rig, especially one with clear tempered glass windows, Team Red gamers will likely not be able in the near future due to the ongoing global semiconductor shortage plaguing the GPU market. evaluate the card. Although the Midnight Black variant of the card is available for $ 649 on the AMD webshop, it is currently sold out. Interested players will have to wait for an inventory update if they want to achieve the GPU.
After introducing the standard Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU, AMD developed the Midnight Black version because, according to Wccftech, there is a demand for a slimmer, completely black color scheme. Both cards have the same hardware specifications, so with the Midnight Black variant you really only get a darkened version. As with the Standard Edition, you still get a GPU that is based on the Navi 2x micro-architecture from AMD (also known as Big Navi) and contains 72 processing units, 72 radiation accelerators, a game clock rate of 2015 MHz and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with 128 MB Infinity cache. And with a retail price of $ 649, AMD is selling the color in a limited edition for the same cost as the regular variant of the Radeon RX 6800 XT.
Early reviewers praised the performance of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. This is the first generation of GPUs from AMD to support real-time ray tracing, which allows the Radeon RX 6000 series to better compete with the GeForce RTX 3000 series cards from rival Nvidia.
It's unclear right now when AMD will replenish inventory for the Midnight Black Edition – or any of the other hard-to-find graphics cards – but Team Red players will likely receive an email notification from the company when new shipments arrive. If you're not already a Team Red player, getting this limited edition and exclusive card is next to impossible at this point as there is no way to sign up for email notifications. In addition to the Radeon GPUs, AMD's Ryzen processors were also hit by the semiconductor shortage, and none of the company's products are listed as available at the time of publication.
