Temporary CPU for MSI Meg X570 Unify Motherboard

I'm switching from Intel to AMD.  While waiting for the 5950x to become available as I build a new computer, does AMD provide a temporary CPU I could use with the MSI Meg X570 Unify Motherboard?  I have purchased all the computer parts I need to build a new computer, but waiting on the 5950x as it is not available anywhere.  The return date for all of my parts is reaching the 30-day limit very soon and I haven't had a chance to see if they even work.

Or should I purchase a different AMD CPU and return it once the 5950x becomes available?  I do not know the return policies for a used CPU and I'm disappointed how difficult it's been for me to find a 5950x.   I hope AMD can help me out.  

Any suggestions?
