The design of the RX 5700 has received a mixed response online with its squashed housing. AMD seems proud of its design though and has announced a 50th Anniversary edition of the Desktop GPU to celebrate being half a century old. It is more than just a paint job though.

AMD turned 50 years old in May, and it has announced an anniversary edition of its Radeon RX 5700 XT to celebrate. Fittingly for a 50th anniversary, AMD has adorned the special edition card with gold accents, giving it a classier look than the regular RX 5700 XT in our opinion.

The 50th Anniversary edition will retail for US$499, which is US$50 more than the RX 5700 XT and US$120 more than the RX 5700. The 50th Anniversary edition features more than just a fancy paint job though. The card can achieve up to 10.14 TFLOPs of performance, which is a minor bump over the 9.75 TFLOPs that the RX 5700 XT can put out.

Moreover, the 50th Anniversary edition will feature higher clock speeds. AMD has raised the 1,605 MHz base clock of the RX 5700 XT to 1,680 MHz, while it has boosted the Game clock and the Boost clock to 1,830 MHz and 1,980 MHz respectively. The card can achieve these moderate performance improvements thanks to a 10 W higher thermal design power (TDP) than the regular RX 5700 XT has.

The price of the RX 5700 XT Anniversary edition puts it in the firing line of many third-party GeForce RTX 2070 Desktop GPUs, although it is still US$100 cheaper than the Founders Edition. Likewise, it is heaps cheaper than the GeForce RTX 2080. Does US$499 represent good value for a 7 nm Navi GPU for you?

I got my first smartphone aged 11, my first PC aged 12 and I have been tinkering with electronics ever since. I like to keep abreast of the latest news and technology, which inevitably leads me to switch my laptop and phone every few months. When I'm not writing for Notebookcheck, you will find me seeking out new coffee shops, bars and trying to find some hidden gems in record stores.
