AMD may be facing another controversy over its Radeon RX graphics cards. KrisFix-Germany, a YouTuber and repair shop owner from out of Germany, has published a video that suggests Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards are suddenly and mysteriously dying at a very high rate, having recently run into 48 dead Radeon RX 6900 and Radeon RX 6800 models out of a total of 61 units. KrisFix-Germany suspects that this may be a driver-related issue, as all of the failed GPUs were reportedly running on the latest Adrenalin (22.11.2) drivers.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6900 Series comprises the Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, Radeon RX 6900 XT, and Radeon RX 6950 XT, a flagship RDNA 2 model that was launched on May 10, 2022, for $1,099. According to benchmarks from AMD, it is capable of delivering up to 114 FPS in popular games. The Radeon RX 6000 Series has since been succeeded by the Radeon RX 7000 Series, based on the RDNA 3 architecture.
