IN A NUTSHELL:
- AMD is celebrating its 50th birthday this year;
- On this occasion, the company will launch special editions of Radeon VII and Ryzena 7 2700X;
- new models will differ in appearance but not in specification;
- In addition, customers who decide to purchase certain AMD products will receive two games as a gift.
AMD announced the "golden" editions of two of its products - the Radeon VII graphics card and the Ryzen 7 2700X CPU. The models are supposed to be a way of celebrating the 50th birthday of the company. Devices do not differ in specification from ordinary variants - both the graphics and the CPU have exactly the same timing and technology. The difference in appearance is that the GPU has a pleasant, all-red design, and the CPU features... the autograph of AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su. Here are some pictures of the devices.
But that's not all. Buyers will also receive T-shirts and stickers with the aforementioned autograph. In addition, both the owners of these gold editions and customers who decide to purchase regular AMD products between April 29 and June 8 will receive a special package of digital games - AMD50 Game Bundle. It will include codes for the recently released title from Saber Interactive studio - World War Z - and Tom Clancy's The Division 2 in the Gold Edition version (along with a season pass offering access to content that will be available in the first year after release). Only selected stores will take part in the promotional campaign.
