AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition Pictured - Gold and Black Color Scheme

You've heard of it, and now you'll see it. AMD's introducing a commemorative edition of their RX 5700 XT graphics card, which brings back the company's XT suffix to video card performance grading (wondering if an XTX video card will eventually make its appearance...) - and a new, black and gold color scheme. The RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will feature increased clocks over their counterparts, with an up to 1980 MHz Boost clock, 1830 MHz Game Clock, and 1680 MHz base clock (compared to 1905 MHz, 1755 MHz and 1605 MHz for the non-anniversary edition.
Apart from the increase in clockspeed (which comes at the expense of an additional 10 W in typical board power, bringing it up to 235 W), and the black and gold color scheme, this is an AMD blower-style graphics card through and through. The company seems to feel a dual-fan design ala NVIDIA isn't warranted, for some reason. The 50th Anniversary Edition will have a limited run, be available from AMD.com only, and will go home with you for $499 ($50 more than the standard version).

Gah... another blower. A very nice looking blower, but still a blower...

Had Raja stuck with AMD, it would've been his signature instead LOL

Given the numbers from the normally clocked 5700XT from yesterday; this OC might put it very very close to R VII and 1080Ti for a much healthier price point.

$499 for a card that has apparently been dropped and got a severe dent seems a bit steep.

I assumed it melted due to heat... maybe they overclocked it too much.

Anyone else bothered by the Signature making the XT look like an XS?

Not even a funny one, but with HD 2900 XT 12 years ago, the flames told very much about the card.

I like blower style personally, since I wear headphones 24.7 anyway, and my parents in winter never turn on the heat, sometimes I just do folding at home in winter on a blower card to stay warm lol

so yeah, I am down with this and probably will buy it and hope it overclocks even a little more than what it ships with as the OC. hope I get my order in time for it :D

for me, I just want a all AMD rig finally that can have decent gaming at 1440p high refresh. Nvidia is doing some shady crap with telemetry these days. and AMD destroys Intel in security. and for me security and privacy are important to me since I do all my banking online, plus leave my PC on a lot for folding at home, etc.

Radeon Founder's Edition, except without a decent cooling solution to match.

The GTX 1080 was released more than 3 years ago with the same perf levels, and it wasn't the top dog also. ;)

Honestly, how many user will buy a reference card after all...?* I'd see this rather as a collector's edition.


* we who use custom h2o are an exception since the cooler doesn't matter. :D

Best thing Lisa Su did was nicely say "you should take time off and see what interests you"... Raja was as media Hog and a tinker in too many part of the business believing he was, a "Jack of all trades, but really a master of none."
