AMD Unveils Limited-Edition Starfield-Themed Graphics Card and CPU

AMD Starfield Edition

AMD, the popular tech company known for its innovative graphics cards and CPUs, is stirring up excitement among gaming enthusiasts with the release of a limited-edition Starfield-themed version of its top-of-the-line RX 7900 XTX graphics card. Currently occupying the coveted spot in our ranking of the best graphics cards, this exclusive GPU is set to leave a mark on the gaming world. However, there is a catch – you won’t be able to purchase it outright.

AMD has announced that only 500 units of the Starfield RX 7900 XTX will be produced, making it an extremely rare and sought-after collector’s item. To get your hands on one, you’ll have to participate in the “special promotions and giveaways” organized by AMD, Bethesda Softworks, and their partners. The motivation behind this limited release is AMD’s partnership with Bethesda for the highly anticipated game, Starfield.

While the Starfield-themed GPU boasts a unique design, it actually shares the same specifications as the base model RX 7900 XTX. If you’ve read our in-depth review of the RX 7900 XTX, you’ll know that it offers impressive performance, rivaling that of the RTX 4080. However, it falls slightly behind when it comes to ray tracing. Given that Starfield’s official system requirements recommend an RX 7900 XT for 4K gaming, it is safe to assume that the flagship XTX model will deliver an exceptional gaming experience.

But that’s not all – in addition to the limited-edition graphics card, AMD is also creating 500 Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPUs with exclusive Starfield packaging. While CPUs may not be the most visually striking components, these collector’s edition CPUs will also be available through special promotions and giveaways.

The collaboration between AMD and Bethesda has sparked some controversy in the gaming community. Starfield will support AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution 2 (FSR 2), a cutting-edge technology that enhances image quality, but it does not appear to include support for Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). This has left some Nvidia users feeling left out and speculating that the partnership between AMD and Bethesda has potentially blocked Nvidia’s technology from being incorporated into the game.

Fans of Starfield, eagerly awaiting its release, can mark their calendars for September 6th when it is scheduled to launch. Moreover, those who purchase the deluxe version of the game will be granted five days of early access, allowing them to dive into the Starfield universe ahead of others. As a bonus, AMD is currently running a promotion where select RX 7000 and Ryzen 7000 GPUs and CPUs come bundled with a copy of the game, giving customers even more reason to upgrade their gaming rigs.

With the introduction of the limited-edition Starfield-themed graphics card and CPU, AMD continues to push the boundaries of gaming hardware while keeping fans engaged through exciting promotions and partnerships. Whether you’re a dedicated gaming enthusiast or a casual player, the allure of owning a rare and collectible piece of gaming history cannot be denied. Stay tuned for more updates from AMD as they revolutionize the gaming experience one product at a time.
