When AMD revealed its first Radeon RX 6000 graphics card image, many PC gamers were surprised that they would be able to find out more information about the graphics card in Fortnite. 

Within Fortnite's Creative Island Mode, Island Code 8651-9841-1639, AMD has created a full Radeon RX 6000 graphics card model for gamers to look at and explore. While many hate the fact that they need to download Fortnite to gain access to the latest Radeon graphics card, the stunt has generated a lot of social media interaction and has given Radeon fans the opportunity to participate and AMD's latest product teaser campaign. 

Below we have images from @boot_sequence on Twitter and a video from the YouTuber Anshel Sag. Both showcase AMD's RX 6000 series graphics card at multiple angles and reveals some unique information about the graphics card which was previously unknown. 

 
For starters, we can see that the graphics card features dual DisplayPort connections and a single HDMI port. We presume that these connections are DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1 connections respectively. In addition to this, we can see a single USB Type-C connection, and at this time we do not know the propose of this port. It is likely that this USB port supports DisplayPort over USB Type-C, though this has not been confirmed.

We can also see again that AMD's RX 6000 series graphics card utilises dual 8-pin PCIe connections for power, allowing AMD's assumed Radeon flagship to consume up to 375 watts of power. AMD can consume a maximum of 300 watts of power from their user's power supply and up to 75 watts of power from the user's PCIe slot. 

Once again, we can see that AMD's cooler design will use three axial fans and utilise a heatsink design that is similar to both AMD's Radeon VII graphics card and Nvidia/s RTX Turing Founders Edition graphics card models. This heatsink appears to be more than capable of cooling AMD's Radeon RX 6000 flagship, and it will likely ship with a power target that's much lower than Nvidia's RTX 3090.

AMD hasn't currently announced any performance numbers for its upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series. Radeon fans should expect a significant performance leap over Navi, thanks to the efficiency boosts of Radeon's RDNA 2 architecture and the addition of new features like VRS, Mesh Shaders and DXR 1.1 support.

AMD is due to launch its RDNA 2 series of GPUs on October 28th 2020. Before then, AMD plans to reveal its Zen 3 architecture on October 8th at a separate event.
