The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black might make a return on the AMD Shop in a few weeks but considering its limited nature and the fact that Red Team Members will be notified us, regular customers will have a really hard time getting their hands on this limited product. Your best bet will be to search eBay or online to see if someone’s selling this card at gouged-up prices.
