Great bundles in tow

AMD has officially announced its newest 50th Anniversary Gold Edition Ryzen 7 2700X and Radeon VII SKUs as well as a special bundle that will mark the 50th anniversary of the company.

Both the Gold Edition Ryzen 7 2700X and the Gold Edition Radeon VII, as AMD decided to call them, are limited edition products and will be hard to snatch especially since the Radeon VII Gold Edition will only be available from and for $699.

On a similar note, Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition will be available for a limited time from select retailers/e-tailers in North America, Latin America, Europe, Greater China, and the Asia Pacific region for $329 USD.

The Gold Edition Ryzen 7 2700X CPU is pretty much the standard Ryzen 7 2700X but with a special box and laser-etched CEO signature on the CPU IHS. The Gold Edition Radeon VII gets a red shroud and now really looks like a proper AMD graphics card.

"For a half century, AMD pushed the boundaries of what's possible in high-performance computing to create new experiences and possibilities for hundreds of millions of people," said John Taylor, chief marketing officer at AMD. "We celebrate this moment with our fans around the world who inspire us to push forward in that spirit for another fifty years to 2069 and beyond."

Those that manage to buy one of these SKUs from April 29 to June 8, 2019, will also get a special AMD50 Game Bundle, which includes a free PC version of World War Z and a special code for om Clancy's The Division 2 Gold Edition, which includes Year 1 Season Pass and some other goodies. The bundle also includes a coupon for AMD50 Tribute T-Shirt and CEO Dr. Lisa Su-Autographed sticker.

The same AMD50 Game Bundle will also be available with some other products including standard Ryzen 7 2700X, 7 2700, 5 2600X, 5 2600, and Ryzen 5 2400G CPUs, as well as standard Radeon VII, RX Vega series, RX 590, RX 580 and RX 570 graphics cards.

More details regarding participating retailers/e-tailers can be found over at AMD's AMD50 website.
