AMD 50th anniversary special edition CPU & GPU (& motherboard as well)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Online retailers have revealed that AMD is going to bring out a special 50th anniversary edition Ryzen 7 2700X and a special 50th anniversary edition RX 590. Expected is that they will be available May 1st.

There is no information on specs at this point but one suspects that they will be higher binned 2700X's, since the name remains 2700X and not 2800X we can expect cache etc to stay the same.

 

Edit: Apparently there is an special 50th anniversary motherboard as well from Gigabyte. I don't immediately see something special about it though.

AMD's 50th Anniversary is fast approaching on May 1, and several new postings at online retailers have revealed that AMD is on the cusp of releasing a new 50th Anniversary Ryzen 7 2700X to celebrate.

Quote

Portuguese online retailer PCDIGA has listed the Sapphire AMD 50th Anniversary Edition Nitro+ Radeon RX 590 8GB graphics card for €299.90, or roughly $338.99, on the company's website.

It's such a shame a 590 is not a huge upgrade to my 580, otherwise I would totally get it .

since I already have a 2700x I'm gonna pass.

People actually ditched the i7 8700K to get an i7 8086K

 

AMD learned nothing with Intel? the same product with a different name and 'LIMITED EDITION" printed on the box and sell it for 80$ more for free profit... I'm disappointed AMD...

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Seems weird coming out with a limited edition CPU of the 2700x when ryzen 3000 is coming out soon and will likely be much better. 

yeah. kinda find it hard to justify, even if it's a 2700X 5GHZ EDITION

If I was into gold GPU's I'd have bought one or painted my FTW3 :P 

 

Sapphire make good looking backplates though.

Interesting stuff. Maybe they managed to bin the CPU better, also I thought they'd release Vega for it potentially. 

 

But what would be better is if they did the anniversary editions with new releases we'll see soon.

AMD has been dropping the prices on the 2000 series quite a bit lately, maybe they intend to launch the CPU at or just above the 2700X original launch price? Still the timing seems ever so bizarre considering Ryzen 3000.

Hopefully they do something extra than intel when it comes to the CPU. Intel only higher binned an excisting product and changed the label
