AMD launched a special version of its Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card today called the Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black edition that, as its name might imply, swaps the standard reference model’s predominately chrome and gray color scheme for one that’s mostly black. Unfortunately (and to the surprise of no one), the sleek-looking GPU sold out pretty much immediately after red team launched the card this morning. It isn’t clear whether AMD will make its Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black edition available again in the future or if other graphics cards in the RDNA 2 family will be given the same special treatment.
