In addition to the anniversary packaging, the Gold Editions of the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X processor and Radeon VII graphics come with coupon codes for free copies of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Gold Edition and World War Z. The AMD50 promotional period also brings various special deals — depending on the retailer — and is set to last until early June.

After quite a few leaks and rumors, the 50th Anniversary special edition hardware is official. In addition to the Gold Edition AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Radeon VII, worldwide retailers will also offer special deals on select AMD products during the AMD50 promotional period that kicked off yesterday and is set to last until June 8, 2019.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the promotional campaign that marks AMD's half-century anniversary:

  • A one-day AMD 50th Anniversary sale on May 1, 2019 at Best Buy that provides up to US$150 USD off select AMD products — including PCs, notebooks, processors, and video cards.
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700X Gold Edition with Dr. Su’s signature imprinted on the processor cover and gold AMD50 packaging, priced at US$329.
  • AMD Radeon VII Gold Edition graphics card features a vibrant red shroud and gold AMD50 packaging, with a price tag that reads US$699.

For each of the two anniversary hardware products mentioned above, the customers will also receive a coupon code for a free PC version of World War Z, a coupon code for a free PC version of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Gold Edition which includes a Year 1 Season Pass and an exclusive in-game AMD50 armband, as well as a an AMD50 sticker signed by the AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, and a coupon to redeem for a free AMD 50th anniversary t-shirt.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
