AMD is about to experience the company's 50th Anniversary and to celebrate this momentous occasion the CPU/GPU manufacturer plans to release limited edition versions of some of their high-end products. 

On the CPU side, AMD plans to launch a 50th Anniversary Edition version of their Ryzen 7 2700X processor, which ships with 50th-anniversary golden packaging and a processor which ships with a laser etched signature of AMD's CEO, Lisa Su. 

Aside from AMD's revamped packaging and signature edition CPU IHS, the Ryzen 7 2700X is the same as any other boxed edition of the processor, shipping with the same clock speeds as before and the same AMD Wraith Prism CPU cooler. At this time the pricing of AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X is unknown, though it is likely to be higher than standard retail editions of the processor.

Rumour has it that AMD also plans to release a 50th-anniversary version of the company's high-end Radeon VII graphics card, with leaked images suggesting that the GPU will ship with a red cooler shroud and other aesthetic changes. Hardware-wise the Radeon VII will be functionally the same as AMD's reference model.

So it's EXACTLY the same apart from a custom (if you can call it that) IHS.

What's the point? I thought it was going to be a binned CPU with slightly higher clocks but clearly not.Quote

Actually, Lisa Su is going to be 50 in November this year as well. It's just her CPU.Quote

I tell you what it's better than.

£185 core I3 with two cores and four threads.

So go Lisa, I say. Ryzen is like Flash. It's saved every one of us.Quote

I recently upgraded from my old 2500k to a Ryzen 1700 system and the difference is amazing and it only cost me £155 for the chip now that is a deal I won't be going back to Intel anytime soon, thou I will pick up an end of life Ryzen chip once AM4 is no more.

AMD is doing well right now and I hope it continues and they start to gain even more market share, they deserve it atm.Quote

Yup and what did we have before? A CPU pretty much identical, slower even (the 5960X for a grand).

Intel's idea of a celebration is a unlocked dual core Pentium, with a price premium.

I really can't believe any one would see anything negative in this at all.Quote
