Intel six-core i7-980x processor acquired!

A couple of weekends ago, the good folks at @IntelGameOn sent me a tweet to let me know that they were holding a special event and giveaway at Fry’s Electronics in Phoenix.

I stopped in, chatted with some of the Intel staff and got a scanner card to enter their giveaway contest. The majority of the people there were winning t-shirts, hats, pens and other little Intel swag (including my friend Warren Owen, who won a t-shirt). When they scanned my card to see what I won, I was completely shocked when they told me that I had won the best possible prize, an Intel i7-975x four-core processor!

Retailing at $999.99, it couldn’t get much better than that, right? Wrong! About a week later, they sent me another message to let me know that my prize had been upgraded to an Intel i-7-980x SIX core processor. Wow.

Today, this beast of a processor was delivered to me via Fedex.

Thank you again to Intel and IntelGameOn, you guys rock!

  1. Congrats Wes. Now, just remember, it you want to trade up to the t-shirt, I can make that happen. I even steamed out all the wrinkles from that crazy t-shirt packaging.

    Again, Congrats!
