AMD Readying Commemorative 50th Anniversary Editions of Radeon VII, Ryzen 7 2700X

AMD is going to celebrate their 50th anniversary in a big way, with commemorative editions of both its highest performance GPU and CPU in the form of the Radeon VII and Ryzen 7 2700X, respectively. This isn’t so surprising – after all, if partners are readying their own special editions, it would be amiss for the red team not to do the same. It’s a time to lavish their lineup with something that marks the fifty years of the company’s existence – alongside its bright (and not so bright) spots.


The Radeon VII will apparently bring the red up to 11, with a red-colored shroud and LED lighting – and apart from that, we simply don’t know. It’s speculated the Ryzen 7 2700X will be packaged in a prettier box, with increased core clocks to boot – perhaps through core binning and a higher maximum boost threshold. It would make sense for AMD to do the same on their own Radeon VII – celebrating a 50th anniversary with increased performance across the board seems an easy conclusion to come to. We’ll just have to wait a few more days, though – apparently, the company will be introducing these products next week, come April 29th. If you want a piece of AMD’s history, this could be your chance – albeit a limited one when it comes to actual production numbers for these limited edition GPU and CPU.
