AMD has uploaded a new trailer teasing the release of an upcoming technology demo called “Hangar 21,” which will demonstrate the ray-tracing prowess of its soon-to-be-released Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

The demo will debut on November 19 and attempt to dazzle gamers with a futuristic scene depicting spaceships, drones, and cyborg ninjas emboldened with realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections made possible by AMD FidelityFX and DirectX 12 Ultimate.

“Coming November 19, the ‘Hangar 21’ Technology Demo Video will let you see the breakthrough AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture in action, the foundation of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards that power the next generation of gaming with mind-blowing visuals featuring realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections enabled by AMD FidelityFX and Microsoft DirectX 12 Ultimate,” AMD wrote.

This tech demo would have been cool to see during AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 Series event back in October, but we’re guessing that it’ll serve just as well for hyping things up during launch week.

The Hanger 21 demo system configuration comprises an AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, and an ASRock X570 Taichi motherboard with 2x 16 GB of DDR4 RAM.
