I think you mean silicon. Silicone is used for breast implants and is soft.
Mmmmmmmmmm! Overclocked boobies!

Anyway I'd bet this is just a binned standard 2700x in fancy packaging. Slightly higher boost clocks and maybe some laser etching on the heat spreader.

I bet its the same old 2700x but with like a gold painted Heatsink and Fan.
Something to look similar to that Anniversary Edition Sapphire rx 590, like where the heatsink shroud is painted a gold color.
Hope I'm wrong though cause I would love to get a specially binned part that could do around 4.6Ghz or higher to play with.

For the price they're asking, I'm certainly hoping that's the case.

However, this may simply be a case of setting a price precedent for the forthcoming Zen 2 processors. I'm sure they've seen the AdoredTV leaks, and it could be that $340 MSRP for 50th anniversary higher-binned 2700X will make an actual matched price point for a future Zen 2 chip look a little better.

Perhaps you get a special plaque with it that says "Congratulations! You have bought a year old CPU, above its initial selling price, and only weeks before we launch an even better CPU."
Has AMD actually announced any anniversary CPU, or are we still at the stage where random online retailers are likely just trying to drum up business for soon to be devalued stock?

SO, how is one supposed to show off that fancy signature?

Honestly it’s not a bad collector item, not great but not bad.
As I said earlier if you need something now or just like collectible stuff it’s not a bad offer.

Whoopee.... [/sarcasm]

I'd expect AMD are inundated with literally up to half a dozen requests from folks (all still living with their mammy and daddy) for this CPU.


'Tis a pity that Zen2 wasn't quite ready for the birthday - releasing a limited edition Zen2 a few weeks ahead of availability for the rest of us peasants would have been quite the PR coup.

2 AAA games, T-shirt, and limited edition version CPU for $330? I agree. I have only been using AMD since the K6 days, but I may buy it, simply to show them some love.

It would look nice boxed, next to my Q6600, Phenom II X6, and FX-8350 (all BNIB). I wish that I had a Pentium 166 MMX boxed. (or 200, I think that they came in 200Mhz speeds too.)

I went to the Athlon XP Launch Event in Boston, it was in some nightclub kind of close to Fenway. I think that I got a t-shirt too. Wonder where that is....

Off Lansdown Street, I believe. I walked past that event heading to the train if I remember correctly.

I think that it was called "Avalon", but I was actually musing where I put that T-shirt.

Well, since I'm just having fun. That's the point.

I just got it installed.
It's stability testing 225MHz higher and 0.1v lower than my 1800x
Oddly it wouldn't boot at 1.3v 4.1GHz 4.05 4.025
soon as I lowered the voltage it fired right up.
