What this guy is doing is no different. By NEW, he would just mean NEW with his own brand label (he probably seals it with his own packaging too). Obviously he clearly states that the chip is fully pre-tested many times in many ways, so it's really the only thing he can mean. So in the end no different from any other company who phsyical handles a cpu with human hands.
