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

American online retailer ShopBLT listed it at USD $340.95 but quickly removed it with the message "out of stock." We're not sure what the SKU will entail, the normal 12 nm "Pinnacle Ridge" silicon has 8-cores/16-threads at 3.70 GHz clock-speed and a 4.30 GHz maximum Precision Boost, XFR, L2 cache of 512 KB per core, and 16 MB of shared L3 cache.

Update April 22nd

The special edition has again been spotted under product code YD270XBGAFA50. the specifications seem to be similar to that of the regular model, so it is unknown in what area it is different (if at all) from the regular Ryzen 7 2700X. Eight cores / 16 threads run at a base speed of 3.7 GHz, with a Precision Boost to 4.3 GHz. The SKU also will get the same Wraith Prism cooler with RGB lighting. The Ryzen 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition is expected to be available on April 30, one day before the anniversary and seems to be a few tenners more expensive opposed to the regular SKU.
