If you didn't already know, AMD turned 50 years old on May 1 and outed its new Ryzen 7 2700X 50th Anniversary Edition and Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition products, while AIB partner SAPPHIRE revealed its slick yellow-themed Radeon RX 590 Nitro+ 50th Anniversary Edition, and GIGABYTE even stepped into the celebrations with its new X470 AORUS Gaming 7 Wi-Fi-50 motherboard.

GIGABYTE's new X470 AORUS Gaming 7 Wi-Fi-50 motherboard has a specially designed box with the AORUS logo embossed in a beautiful gold to celebrate AMD turning 50. The board is a special edition kit with custom overlay that sits under the 24-pin ATX power connector, which has 'AORUS x AMD 50th Anniversary" markings in the RGB LED array.

There's no difference with the actrual board and the non-50 version, so I don't see the point - especially with X570 around the corner. But again, it'll be an awesome collectors item one day. Buy it and keep it in the box.
