"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 is allowing those who received the free Core i7-8086K processor to exchange it for the company's own Threadripper 1950X.
As part of the special-edition release, Intel opened up a sweepstakes to give away 8,086 of the six-core 12-thread processors.
Running at 5GHz with its turbo boost in full effect, the Core i7-8086K is one nippy chip, which PC Gamer points out can outperform the Threadripper 1950X in games. Existing X299 motherboards will be compatible with AMD'sRyzen Threadripper 2nd Generation processors.
Really, the whole thing is a bit moot unless you happen to be in the United States and one of the 40 Core i7-8086K winners.
Bottom line:AMD has a 32-core / 64-thread CPU waiting in the wings. Now, AMD is firing back at Intel's celebratory release with a giveaway of its own, but with an interesting twist. There's one measure that's indisputable, however: economics.
Okay, so, you purchased a Core i7 8086K for 450 bucks, and now you can swap it at AMD for that 16-core Threadripper 1950X. Well, if you thought AMD would ease off on the Intel slamming just because 50 is a grand year, you'd be sorely mistaken.
To coincide with the launch, Intel kicked off a contest to giveaway 8,086 of the processors worldwide, with 2,086 confirmed for the US market. THE Threadripper 1950X boasts a baked-in "game mode" that tweaks the chip's performance but still leaves it lagging behind a several of Intel's latest eighth-gen processors.
AMD is doing all it can to disrespect Intel right now.
