Recently on June 20, some French websites reported that AMD RX 5700 XT 50th anniversary edition graphics card would only be available in the US and China. This causes a lot of furious uproar amongst GPU enthusiasts and latest tech adopters. But AMD has subsequently responded that it will also be available in some European countries and regions.
AMD said that the RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will also be available in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
But this still doesn’t sound that satisfactory as these are all European countries and we aren’t looking at any global launch. This also means that this GPU won’t be hitting the Indian markets and won’t be available in the APAC region for most parts. This kind of selective release is surely going to hit AMD’s fan base in all the neglected regions.
AMD RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary graphics card specifications and details
The AMD RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary High-Performance Commemorative Edition graphics card has 40 computing units. The Navi GPU’s base frequency is 1680 MHz and the Boost frequency goes as high as 1980 MHz. A new higher game frequency has also been added. So this GPU can reach a max frequency of 1830 MHz in the game mode. The graphics card is equipped with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. In terms of performance, the card can output 10.14 TFLOPs of computational power. It is further improved compared to the AMD Radeon 5700XT‘s 9.75 TFLOPs. Finally, the price of the card is $499. At such a price it could be a lucrative buy for fans of high-end performance and AMD’s GPUs. But the limited release would ensure that not a lot of people would be able to get their hands on this GPU.
In fact, it seems that in addition to the Chinese and American markets, most of the EU member states can get their hands on this limited edition graphics card. So guys what do you think of this move by AMD? Should they have released this limited edition GPU in India too? Do let us know your opinions in the comments section below!
