Set to celebrate its 50th anniversary on May 1, AMD is rolling out two limited edition products to memorize the date. The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition CPU and the AMD Radeon VII Gold Edition GOY will come in a special package and will be bundled with free PC versions of the World War Z as well as The Division 2 Gold Edition games, sitckers of the CEO’s signature, and a code to redeem a limited edition T-shirt.
As pointed out above, AMD will offer two 50th anniversary edition products: a CPU and a GPU. The eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition processor (3.7 – 4.3 GHz) will feature Lisa Su’s signature imprinted on its IHS and will come in a special packaging, however the specifications will be identical to the regular 2700X. The CPU will also come with AMD’s top end Wraith Prism CPU cooler. The CPU will cost $329 in the US and will be available from select retailers all across the world.
The Radeon VII Gold Edition graphics card featuring a red shroud and gold AMD50 packaging will cost $699 in the US and will be available from AMD.com and JD.com.
Customers who will buy the CPU or GPU will also get two free games: the World War Z and The Division 2 Gold Edition (with Year 1 Season Pass). In addition, they will get a Lisa Su-autographed sticker and a coupon to get a free AMD 50th anniversary T-shirt.

In addition to two 50th anniversary edition products, AMD’s partners across the world will also offer special deals on select AMD’s products, though they will vary by countries and regions.
AMD’s 50th anniversary campaigns will run from April 29 through June 8, but local promotions will have different dates and terms. It is worth noting that, for the CPU at least, the retail price of the limited edition versions will be reasonably higher ($40-$80) than the standard non-50th edition, due to price pressure on those parts at various retailers.
Update: Newegg is stating that buyers of the product will be entered into a free prize draw to win an AMD Matisse processor, coming out later this year.
