AMD has released a limited edition Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black.

Good luck obtaining one.

AMD has launched a special Midnight Black version of the Radeon RX 6800 XT reference design in response to fan reviews. AMD Red Team members received an email informing them about the new colour scheme ahead of time, giving them the opportunity to purchase one. They are, predictably, already sold out.

 

The Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black graphics card will be released on April 7, 2021 at 06:00 AM PST, according to an email sent to AMD Red Team group members. The card will only be valid for a short period, when stocks last.

“Based on community feedback and popular demand, we have created a select quantity of AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT (Midnight Black) graphics cards featuring the same great performance of the widely popular AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT,” said an AMD representative.

As it seems, the only difference between the Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black and the original Radeon RX 6800 XT are in the aesthetics, featuring a black shroud with gray accents around the middle fan.

The Midnight Black version, like the reference Radeon RX 6800 XT, features the Navi 21 XT GPU with 4608 stream processors and 72 ray accelerators. It also has 16GB of GDDR6 memory and 128MB of Infinity Cache.

The Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black was available for $649.00 on AMD’s website when supplies lasted.

Given the current GPU shortage, it was to be anticipated that obtaining one of these would be difficult unless you were a member of the Red Team group. If you missed out on purchasing one from AMD, you can still rely on an eBay scalper to sell one for three times the MSRP.
