It looks like Newegg got the "exclusive release" of the 50 yr anniversary for AMD CPU's. Newegg has a "Gold Edition" of the Ryzen 7 2700X for $330

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Pr...6819113102
  • AMD 50th Anniversary Edition
  • Special AMD50 Gold Box and Bezel Sticker
  • Dr. Lisa Su Signature on the CPU Lid, Along with Special AMD50 Marking on the CPU Lid
  • Coupon to Redeem an AMD50 Shirt
  • Digital Code to Enter a Drawing for a Free Matisse Processor upon Launch
    • This giveaway has been cancelled -iconian
  • AMD StoreMI Technology and SenseMI Technology
  • AMD Ryzen Master Utility
  • Unlocked Processor
  • AMD Wraith Prism Cooler Included
Its about $35 higher than the regular Ryzen 7 2700X but it comes with the bolded exclusives and it might become a collectors edition in the future, the specs look the same as the regular Ryzen 7 2700X. It also comes with 2 free games right now Tom Clancy's The Division 2 Gold Edition & World War Z.

Figured as much for $35 higher than the regular edition but the T-Shirt would usually costs $10-$15 and I guess the other stuff your paying for is the collectors value, the 50th anniversary markings on the cpu, Lisa Su's signature on the cpu lid, and the drawing entry for the free Matisse CPU, oh and also the exclusivity since its limited stock and exclusive to Newegg.

Considering that some "celebrities" charge $25-$50 for an autograph I think Lisa Su's signature on it might make up for the extra $35 alone though.

Su and her husband Dan are based in Austin, Texas. Su and Nvidia's co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun Huang are said to be cousins, but she dismissed it as "not true."

The CEO of AMD. Note , the chip is laser etched just like any other. She did not sign it, it's her signature etched into it. (Which will be covered by thermal paste)

If these were some premium bin I might consider it. I'm guessing the shirts are while supplies last.

"and it might become a collectors edition in the future,"

I'll buy the one in the ordinary wrapper. I doubt that anyone 8+ years down the road will be collecting used cpus for anything other than their gold content.

No one will notice the difference between this anniversary edition versus a standard one when the device is the case and is covered by the cooler. Perhaps AMD can add a special utility that displays a banner during boot.

What about 50 years later? If AMD goes on to become an industry titan by then, don't you think this piece will be a valuable memorabilia.
