    Seems AMD it's preparing for the festivities of their celebration 50th anniversary beginning with a Ryzen 2700x 50th anniversary edition to be released on May 1st , 2019.

    This reminds me of the Black editions / Tweakers edition AMD cpus from the past :) so i expect very highly binned low voltage higher clocks from them ( Jut thinking out loud here ok ). It seems AMD is about to get the ball rolling on May 1st , 2019 following by the launch of AMD Ryzen 3xxx cpus on June , approaching fast and ready to rock and roll AMD is gearing up for the new release.

    Thanks to @Dayman58 on Twitter who found and posted this new information.

    I wonder if Intel will offer 9900K for exchange. AKA: 8086k

    While this is a nice idea (PR wise), I wonder if they're after cleaning Ryzen 2000 stocks.

    7nm 2700X. Make it available before Zen 2 launches, good PR, increase the hype.

    Nice release but I guess most are still waiting for the 3000 series which should be a few month away?

    This move is at least curious, after AMD mocked Intel for their Anniversary Edition.

    Just saw 50th Anniversary RX 590- so maybe AMD just gonna change the "Look/Appearance" of limited number of their current products to emphasize the "50 Anniversary"?
    IMO the Real Limited edition CPU will be the new 7nm 16C Part that will make a joke from 9900K.

    I don't think so - more like some special engraving and maybe a letter signed by the CEO like Intel did with their anniversary edition...

    Would make zero sense. And 7nm is still not even close, yields are too bad. I wouldn't be surprised if Q4 begins before we see 3000 desktop series at 7nm DUV (which sucks compared to EUV). Maybe with a big pricetag because of yields.

    Talk is cheap. And this is all AMD is doing.

    Nvidia will be the next to jump on board with this idea. You will get a 30th Anniversary gpu with a miniature leather jacket embedded in lucite.

    I don't really remember AMD mocking Intel over the 8086k. I do remember them offering a Threadripper 1950X in exchange for people who won that sweepstakes event, as a way to steal Intel's thunder, but that's about as far as they went.

    But, I do see your point. It will be interesting if Intel retaliates in a similar fashion.

    7nm Zen+ would be a complete waste of money and R&D unless they intend to delay Zen 2.

    No point doing the R&D required for a node shrink for a product that will be extremely limited, they'd never make their money back.

    WRONG! They've been selling (and keeping stock) of the Radeon 7 for a couple months now. Its a HUGE (compared to Ryzen ) 7nm die. To be able to do that, yields have to be very, very good. Manufacturing a small Ryzen die for R3000 is very easy compared to doing one for Vega 20.

    You clearly have no idea what you're talking about lol

    Vega 20 was shrunk for the Radeon Instinct MI50 and MI60. Radeon VII is a byproduct of that. If AMD had never planned the MI50 and MI60, they would not create one GPU with a brand new node technology, you can't make your money that way.

    In fact the fact we have the Radeon VII implies they couldn't get their money back with the MI50 and MI60 as well.

    And there have been multiple times the Radeon VII has not been in stock, newegg for instance pulled the whole page for the Radeon VII for awhile due to not having a single one in stock, so to state that yields have to be "very very good" on a GPU that is too expensive in the first place, not many people are buying, yet runs out of stock, doesn't make sense.

    Fair point - after all, their stock is limited so it's not like they can do a giveaway.

    The 50th Anniversary stuff is just a marketing campaign, that's all it is. I thought it was interesting to see "50th" as for the last 20 years I've heard, "AMD is going belly up--AMD is all but dead, etc." on a regular basis from various clueless folks here and there. Or else there were the "Intel or nVidia are going to buy AMD!" rumors. Ironic that it wasn't until AMD launched the Athlon and the A64, handily besting Intel for a couple of years, that those rumors began in earnest...;)

    I'd bet it's just cherry picked 2700x's with slightly better clocks than the normal chip. And maybe a slight price drop also.

    Also a way to get rid of 2700x stocks.
