Today, AMD has launched a black-colored variant of its Big Navi graphics card known as the Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black. The variant is a limited edition model which has the same specifications as the reference model but comes with an all-black color scheme which looks impressive.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black is stated to be made after the company received a huge demand for it. This prompted AMD to release an all-black variant for a select quantity of its Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card. The card is primarily targeted at the AMD Red Team members since they received an early notification for the card on where to buy them. As of right now, the card is listed over at AMD's official shop for a price of $649.99 US but is marked as 'Out of Stock' which means that the initial stock has run dry.

Update: We did report while posting about the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black card that it was out of stock but it looks like scalpers were once again the first to get the card and have it listed over at eBay for prices of up to $1900 US which is completely insane.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black might make a return on the AMD Shop in a few weeks but considering its limited nature and the fact that Red Team Members will be notified us, regular customers will have a really hard time getting their hands on this limited product. Your best bet will be to search eBay or online to see if someone's selling this card at gouged-up prices.
