    Buy it, never use it, keep it squirreled away for years and sell at a premium later
    Otherwise...why bother

    Looks like there is no binning of these. Unless you are an AMD fan, I don't see the point. My 2700x is just as good as this one. I get 4.35GHz on one or two cores on mine using the standard PBO config.

    Hogwash, your's is not signed.:p

    tshirt, games and case badge make this a no-brainer for an enthusiast who needs one.

    I'll bet this is just a gimmick to clear stock right before the Zen 2.0 launches. Interesting stuff included, but not enough to bite.

    Lisa, I think most of us are waiting for the Real Deal :D

    I wonder how much my Chinese-made Ryzen 1600 would be worth if a 5 year scribbled/forged her name on it and the numbers "5" and "0" next to it?

    $50 premium? From MSRP or actual selling price? Guess it depends on how much the "collectors" stuff is worth to you.

    What, no Lisa Sure Bobblehead?

    The cult of personality surrounding AMD senior execs is kind of ridiculous.

    Its one of the few things AMD does well marketing wise. They've done a great job making Su the face of AMD and having her be someone that people outside the company look up to and like.

    I would buy if Jensen Huang singed it and they called it CEO edition.

    And i just found out BREAKING NEWS: NVIDIA’s CEO is the Uncle of AMD’s CEO

    Ah, well I guess I just prefer a world where CEO's and Executives like Lisa Su and Raja Koduri are not celebrities. Where they live behind an impermeable wall that is the corporate brand, so you don't see the person, you see the product.

    Looks like $50 more from the current selling price. MSRP is $350 vs the 295-300 of the normal 2700X. Egg (which apparently has it exclusively in the US) has it for $330 for the next couple days. Still not worth it in my opinion.

    When you are as good as Lisa, im okay with it (don't know about Raja, didn't know he had 'fans' in any case).

    I thought the same thing with my G3258. Sold it for a fair price. Ended up buying another one cheaper an put it in my pfsense box.

    Dual cores aren't useful for to much these days. (Games and how "heavy" the internet has gotten these days are to blame in my opinion).

    Well you have figure that in as little a four years where products are leading in performance and business has been brought from near bankruptcy to an accelerating profitability an executive would be celebrated.
    And, believe me, she is not done and the best is yet to come.

    GN tests the "Gold Edition"

    As expected, it's identical to the 2700x. If anything their standard 2700x overclocked better.

    yeah you're basically just paying for division 2 gold edition, wwZ, and Lisa Su's signature etched into the chip. cool collectors item but that's about it.

    Not at all surprising. Even if these were cherry picked and guaranteed to overclock better than the average 2700X I don't think they'd be worth the additional cost. Its not even worth it for the games as several AMD CPUs include the same game bundle.

    Serious waste of money. At least the 8086K gave you some extra mhz.

    That T-Shirt looks the cheapest nylon even on the images. So clearly only good as a wall ornament not something one would wear.
