It looks like we’re likely to see AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards in the coming months. Recently, an AMD-sponsored Fortnite streamer, “MisGinaDarling” have discovered an easter egg in Fortnite which strongly indicates the coming of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.
Radeon RX 6000 Teaser in Fortnite Easter Egg
The new Fortnite map contains a particular hidden quest which requires users to enter a code. Upon entering the code ‘6000’, gamers will be greeted with the following message: “SOMETHING BIG IS COMING TO THE AMD BATTLE ARENA!” Of course, none of this specifically points to the Radeon RX 6000, but given the code (6000) and the aforementioned code stating “BIG” (Big Navi GPU), it still would be a pretty good bet.
While the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards will most likely be released this year, it seems that both Nvidia and AMD are aiming for their respective card to be out in the market before Sony and Microsoft releases their next-gen consoles—to ‘steal’ a bit of the market share from the console gaming market. Those aside, given the incredible price-to-performance offering that comes with Nvidia RTX 30 series graphics cards, we’re indeed excited to see just what AMD has got in store for gamers and PC enthusiasts; we’ll find out soon enough!
