While AMD prepares to release the new RDNA 2 powered Radeon RX 6000 series cards soon, graphic card manufacturers have already started working on custom variants of the RX 6800 series. XFX, the gaming brand which is known for its stylish Radeon line-up, has officially released a teaser about their THICC series Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards.
The teaser was released by XFX on their Twitter page and from the video, there is a glimpse of the upcoming custom graphics card design. The cards appear to have an all-black GPU shroud with white lines on its edges. The black and white color combination looks good. The cards clearly feature three cooling fans and are also believed to come with dual 8-pin connectors. There is also the XFX insignia on the top of the card and also on the backplate. The front portion of the card has the “Radeon” branding and the top part with the “6800 XT” logo.
