AMD Threadripper 2990X 32-core monster detailed in leak

"Our competitor recently kicked off a sweepstake to celebrate the first 40 years of the x86 processor by giving away 8,086 limited edition processors".

At Computex 2018, Intel officially announced it was releasing the Core i7-8086K, a special edition processor that commemorates the 40th anniversary of the 8086, which debuted as the first x86 processor on June 8, 1978.

Intel could have ignored AMD's backhanded compliment, but where's the fun in that?

In order to rain on their parade, and according to AMD, to "celebrate the next 40-years of high-performance computing", the company is now offering to exchange that Core i7-8086K CPU for a Threadripper 1950X CPU for the first 40 USA -based winners. We've put all the top CPUs from AMD and Intel through our benchmarking gauntlet to see which one comes out on top. AMD was keen to note that "they appreciate the advancements they've (Intel) helped drive with the x86 architecture over the last four decades", they are "ready to take it from here".

Britain condemns Israel bias at United Nations rights council

Those wishing to take AMD up on the offer are encouraged to check back with the company on June 25 at 1:00 p.m.

"If you wanted an Intel Core i7 8086K processor too, you could have just asked us", Intel Gaming says in a response on Twitter. "That's why we're giving 40 performance-hungry enthusiasts in the U.S.an opportunity to celebrate the next 40 years of high-performance computing by trading in their commemorative processor prize for our CPU that enables you to work, play and create with heavy metal".

AMD teased and benchmarked their forthcoming 32-core Ryzen Threadripper 2nd Generation processor and now it seems the chip has leaked out in full. Kidding aside, if you're really interested, you'll have to head over to this page and "complete certain steps".

Really, the whole thing is a bit moot unless you happen to be in the USA and one of the 40 Core i7-8086K winners. Before we go any further, the AMD promotion only applies in the United States, and only to the first 40 respondents.
