Limited Edition AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition Extended Availability – US, China, Europe
AMD’s latest Navi GPUs built on the RDNA architecture, the RX 5700, RX 5700 XT, and RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition unveiled at AMD’s Next Horizon Gaming event at E3, will soon be available with only weeks to spare until their July 7th release, though one of these models may prove difficult to purchase.
AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary – Limited Supply?
AMD has announced a limited edition variant of the Radeon RX 5700 XT with higher clocks and a sleek black and gold shroud design, for a price of $499, though according to a report from Cowcotland, the availability of the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will be minimal.
Rumor is that the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition will be exclusive to the United States and China, leaving gamers in portions of North America, Europe, Oceana, and portions of Asia will have no chance of purchasing the Radeon RX 5700 XT directly from AMD. If this proves to be true, AMD could be going down a similar path similarly to the Radeon VII, launching the card with very few units, slowly restocking, and selling out almost instantly.

AMD Corporate Communications – RX 5700 XT Availability Extends to Canada and Europe
Reddit user dprairie_AMD of AMD Corporate Communications has made a statement in regards to the availability of the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition in multiple European countries:
We will be expanding AMD.com sales to more countries, so we expect the 50th anniversary edition will also be available in: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
Sorry we are not offering global availability at this point. We hear you on the desire. The team is focused on expanding into more regions/countries while making sure we can fully support customers.
Sorry, forgot to mention North America (both US and Canada) are included as well.
It seems as if most European residents in various countries may now have a chance to purchase the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, yet global availability isn’t quite here yet.
