In partnership with 343 Industries, AMD revealed today (October 21) that it has created the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Halo Infinite Limited Edition graphics card – a Halo Infinite-themed design of AMD’s flagship graphics offering.
The card features a custom shroud bearing several iconic elements from the Master Chief himself, including a reflective, iridium gold fan border, the “117” Spartan callsign, along with a Cortana-blue light to signify the AI slot on the back of the Master Chief’s helmet.
However, the Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card is not for sale but fans will instead have several opportunities in the coming weeks to get their hands on one. Updates will be provided via the AMD Radeon and Halo social channels when the time comes.
