GIGABYTE Unveils AMD-50 Commemorative Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi

GIGABYTE unveiled a special commemorative package of its flagship socket AM4 motherboard, the Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi. Much like the Ryzen 7 2700X AMD-50 Edition processor, this GIGABYTE motherboard is a minor variation of the original it's based on, with a handful cosmetic changes. The box package features AMD-50 markings, as does the board's model name, with a "-50" suffix. The motherboard itself features some "AMD-50" and "AORUS x AMD 50th Anniversary" markings along the acrylic RGB LED diffuser along the board's top-right corner and elsewhere. Perhaps out of the box, the board's RGB LEDs shine in a more pronounced shade of gold than the Aorus default orange-gold tint. These apart, the board is every bit identical to the Aorus X470 Gaming 7 WiFi, which currently retails for around USD $220, competing with the likes of the MSI X470 Gaming M7 and the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero.

That's probably why neither AMD nor its motherboard partners put any real R&D into these commemorative products: Zen 2 and X570 are less than 2 months away.

You should email AMD and tell them to change their anniversary day.

Tone it way down. We're much closer than what people may think.

That can be done anytime this year...almost as if the smart move would be for their most anticipated launches in many years.
