Here's AMD's newest Radeon RX 6000 series flagship graphics card

Note: This article was first published on 15 Sept 2020.

AMD was slated to reveal their latest graphics and computer processors next month, but with NVIDIA already heating up the GPU battleground with their RTX 30 Series (our very own review of the GeForce RTX 3080 goes up tomorrow evening, by the way) it looks like the Red side could no longer hold on to one of their worst kept secret by tweeting about it.

Behold, the Radeon RX 6000 flagship series graphics card!

Interestingly, AMD is also letting gamers explore the card design further with a new Fortnite Creative Islands multiplayer map in the AMD Battle Arena, which you can watch below. Also interestingly enough, Fortnite will also add support for ray traced reflections, shadows, global illumination, and ambient occlusion in the game on 17 September - as well as NVIDIA's DLSS and Reflex technology for reduced latency will also be supported.

The Radeon RX 6000 is powered by AMD's RDNA 2 architecture, the same as the graphics processor unit powering the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.
