Photos of a black AMD Radeon RX 6800XT have started to pop up on the Internet, showing it off in a size comparison next to an RTX 3070. Apparently, these all-black versions are destined to be housed in Lenovo Legion gaming PCs.
As seen in the photos shared in Weibo (via VideoCardz), the black Radeon RX 6800XT seems to be identical to the reference design that AMD has presented during the Radeon RX 6000 series announcement. It features the same triple-fan design with Radeon logos on the centre and the same dimensions. The only differences that we have spotted are the silver edges of the fans, and obviously, the black shroud. Additionally, it seems that the Radeon logo on the side of the card will be the only thing lighting up when the card is powered.
Compared to the RTX 3070, the two graphics cards are roughly the same size and thickness. The Radeon RX 6800XT shown in the photos features triple-fan cooling solution and is powered by 2x 8-pin power connectors, while the grey OEM-version of the RTX 3070 features two bigger fans and is powered by a single 8-pin power connector.
The Radeon RX 6800XT will release on November 18th, priced at $649, alongside the Radeon RX 6800. The Radeon RX 6900XT is expected to launch on December 8th,
