    Also, why not. Intel did it, they can too. AMD's on an upswing.

    These are just going to be binned processors with a slightly higher boost or something but might well appeal to the hobbyist overclockers or to the hardcore AMD fans. Given the price doesn't seem anywhere near as silly as Intel's anniversary chips, I don't doubt they'll sell.

    It's also a marketing strategy to increase brand awareness.

    And because all companies try to believe they're amazing, special and worthy of celebration.

    I guess the only sad part is that it's got a default Wraith Prism. It is a lovely cooler, as OEM go, but would have ben nice to see a bigger more effective cooler with these specials

    I think they could get a little more glow in there!

    I'm just about to buy a 2700 non x version as it's currently £70+ cheaper than the X version. With my Dark Rock Pro 4 cooler I'll overclock it to X version numbers and spend the saved money on a decent X470 mobo.
