AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT gets a Midnight Black version

Posted on Wednesday, Apr 07 2021 @ 10:12 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Much to everyone's surprise, a new version of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT is on the way. VideoCardz reports AMD will roll out a Midnight Black edition of the RX 6800 XT at 6 AM PST today. The new model uses a black color scheme -- it's unknown if it has any other changes in terms of specifications. We don't expect it will have different frequencies versus the regular edition.

It's unknown whether this is a one-off release or an SKU that will later be restocked. The card will be offered via the AMD.com webshop later today, so you'll have to be very quick and beat the scalpers if you want one. The regular Radeon RX 6800 XT costs $649 -- it's unknown if the Midnight Black version will cost more.
