AMD Launches New Graphics Card For Gaming Market: What You Need to Know

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD), which has been riding on its product momentum in recent years, announced Wednesday a new graphics card.

What Happened: Santa Clara, California-based AMD officially launched its Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card in a bid to capitalize on the strong demand from the gaming market.

The new video card is designed to provide exceptional performance, stunningly vivid visuals and advanced software features to redefine 1440p resolution gaming, the company said in a statement.

"The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card hits the sweet spot for 1440p gaming. For most gamers still playing on three-to-four-year-old graphics cards, it is the perfect upgrade solution designed to deliver incredible visuals and no-compromises, high-refresh 1440p gaming performance at maximum settings, said Scott Herkelman, a Graphics Business Unit executive at AMD.
