AMD is gearing up for a lot of exciting announcements in the upcoming months. Keeping aside the hype for the upcoming launches, AMD has revealed a new variant of the 2700X today. AMD revealed the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition processor. AMD and its partners will be launching these variants of the products to mark AMD’s 50th anniversary. For now, we know about two products that will be getting their 50th Anniversary Editions. Firstly, we had the Radeon VII, and now we have the Ryzen 7 2700X.
As Wccftech writes, “The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition processor has been pictured along with its final packaging“. Contrary to the speculations, the Ryzen 2700X sports the same specifications as the vanilla 2700X. That might disappoint some of the fans out there. However, given the fact that this is mostly aimed at collectors, it won’t make that big of a difference. Moreover, it’ll come with a laser-etched signature of AMD’s CEO. The CPU heat spreader will be boasting the signature. Finally, the package has been changed to a black and gold color scheme. Like the vanilla edition, it comes bundled with the Wraith Prism cooler.
Coming back to the specifications, it is similar to the 2700X like we mentioned earlier. The processor will feature 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.7 Ghz and boost frequency of 4.3 Ghz. It will be equipped with 16 MB of L3 cache with a TDP of 105W. Finally, coming to the price, the 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition will be available for the same price as the vanilla 2700X. The processor is expected to make it’s way to shelves in the first week of May. Complementing the release will be AMD’s Radeon VII 50th Anniversary edition. As far as the Radeon VII is concerned, it will come with a red color scheme. However, there is no information on the Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition’s specifications.
