AMD drops surprise Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition card

AMD had a couple of surprises at the end of its E3 press conference. After the announcement of its Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 GPUs, CEO Lisa Su took to the stage again to reveal the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition. This is a souped-up version of its Navi flagship and comes decked out in stealth black and a sleek gold blower fan. 

If you look closely, you'll also notice Lisa Su's signature on the shroud right next to the Radeon branding.

Compared to the regular version of the Radeon RX 5700 XT, the 50th Anniversary model comes with higher clock speeds across the board, which boost its overall compute performance to 10.14 TFLOPS, up from 9.75 TFLOPS. In comparison, the Radeon RX 5700 XT has a base clock of 1,605MHz and boost clock of 1,905MHz. 

The card will be available to buy directly from AMD's website at US$499.
