    I'd let Kyle beat the living piss out of it the send it to AMD and then Kyle can ship you a mint 1950x that you can then sell for brand new with a slight reduction in price and get a 2990x as soon as they drop with that money.

    Thats how I'd do it.

    Plot twist: AMD just wants the new Intel chips because they are better than their TR's.

    Yeah, plot twist.
    Ron Jeremy trades in his 12" schmeckle for a 5"standard size, because it's just better? Amirite?



    No one in their right mind would want the Intel over a Threadripper.

    Would trading it for a 1950x make you the schmuck or NOT trading it? I'm sincerely asking.

    Congrats man. Rip it.

    I so hope AMD doesn't ask you to send the 8086 to them... and instead makes you prove you turned it into a key chain. :) Or better yet lets you use it as a case badge for your new TR system.

    Also I hope that come April 2019... AMD does a huge give away to celebrate the introduction of AMD64 16 years prior. I hope they plaster the name AMD64 everywhere making sure all the kids born after 2003 know of their introduction of the first 64 bit x86 chips. I hope there give aways are top of the line threadrippers hot off the 7nm press.. with 32 cores 64 threads and 4.64GHZ clocks. (5.64 may be asking much) For added measure they can throw in Lisa Su autographs. lol

    I can't wait for the story:

    "I won a 8086 so I could make a keychain of it, next to my Threadripper system!"

    I like that but using it as a case badge would be even more denigrating. Maybe a rear case badge lmao

    No no no... Somewhat wrong. Ask AMD if he can ship it to Kyle in exchange for the 1950x, then do the rest as planned. Kyle gets an 8086 to abuse without concern and he gets the 2990x in the end. Win win!

    IIRC conditions of contest (AMD swap) are that it's unopened.
