I hope you don’t like the look of these limited editions because AMD doesn’t have any real intentions of actually producing them.

The 2023 rendition of QuakeCon has just concluded with a handful of announcements and showcases, such as a quazzy “remaster” for Quake II and the reveal of a one off promotional bundle of AMD’s flagship graphics card, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and one of the fastest gaming processors in the world, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D with stacked “V-Cache”.

Made to cement the partnership between AMD, who are sponsoring Bethesda’s upcoming “Starfield” open world RPG, promising optimized performance for AMD hardware and for a limited time select AMD Radeon and Ryzen products will come bundled with Starfield at no additional charge.

This limited edition bundle offers a unique white themed livery design of the standard Radeon RX 7900 XTX with intricate design cues inspired from the companion Vasco.

While not quite as impressive as the limited edition graphics card, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D does feature revised artwork for its packaging to follow the same aesthetic, the main focus is of course on the graphics card with an etched Starfield logo on its backplate.

Along with a little color flare featured on its heatsink in the color combination of the in-game “Constellation” organization.

Given that AMD’s marketing is relatively poor, they don’t have any real intentions of actually selling these limited run products to coincide with Starfield’s launch, so undoubtedly that will be a massive disappointment for anyone who actually likes the look of this bundle.

This non-existent to retail bundle also reminds me of the time where AMD had the bright idea of having a themed variant of their Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card for Halo Infinite’s release, now that GPU looked absolutely snazzy as it adorned the design element of Master Chief’s helmet.

Of course it was entirely pointless, much like this Starfield bundle, given how the only way to obtain the Halo Infinite RX 6900 XT was to enter yet another sweepstakes of which only but a handful of people actually had the right to own it.


These are promotional material made for a promotional event after all, AMD are apparently giving away only but 500 units during QuakeCon itself as the event progresses.

Though I do have to ask, is it possible to play video games besides Starfield with this bundle or do they only play Starfield.
