AMD 50th Anniversary Ryzen CPUs Listed At Retailers (ShopBLT)

AnandTech - Thu, 2019-04-18 16:00

Every company loves a good anniversary. It's a time to explain the origin story, show how the company came to the fore, and discuss the next year's of business. This year sees AMD hit 50, and those celebrations are expected to ramp up over the next couple of months, especially with AMD headlining the launch keynote at the annual Computex trade show. On the back of this anniversary, it would appear that AMD is preparing some special anniversary edition processor bundles.

Based on product listings at ShopBLT, a retailer known for making early listings, AMD is planning to release a special Anniversary Edition of its top of the line Ryzen 7 2700X processor, bundled with the Ryzen Wraith Prism RGB CPU cooler.

The listing doesn't state what is special about this edition, but it is priced substantially higher than a standard 2700X plus Wraith package, at $388 vs $329. We do see that the package has its own SKU numbering different to the normal boxed version of the 2700X (YD270XBGAFA50), but given AMDs history we might see bundled game packages or perhaps a physical addition to the box. Given the seemingly $50 price difference, I hope it's something a bit more substantial and physical, especially if this ends up being a limited time offering.

We are reaching out to AMD for official comment.

Thermaltake Rolls Out Floe Riing RGB 360 TR4 Edition CPU Cooler

techPowerUp - Thu, 2019-04-18 15:55
Thermaltake today rolled out the Floe Riing RGB 360 TR4 Edition, a variant of this closed-loop liquid CPU cooler for AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors. Although its pump-block has the same dimensions as the original Floe Riing series, the TR4 Edition features an enlarged, rectangular copper base for more coverage of the Ryzen Threadripper integrated heatspreader (IHS).

The cooler features a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator with three included Riing Plus RGB TT Premium Edition fans, which each spin between 1,000 to 2,000 RPM, pushing 26.35 to 54.42 CFM of air-flow, with a noise output ranging between 21.8 to 33 dBA. The three fans and the pump-block feature 16.7 million-color addressable RGB embellishments, which are controlled by the included addressable RGB LED controller. The cooler can handle high enough thermal loads to support 250W TDP Threadripper WX processors with high core-counts. TR4 is also the only socket type supported by this cooler. The company didn't reveal pricing.
