    Confidential CPU

    Zenki

      Hey guys,

       

      So i bought a second hand CPU off of a local site, it was advertised as a E5 2623 v4, today i recieved it in the mail today and i was surprised to see something totally else:

      Intel Confidential

      NA

      QK3R 2.60GHZ

      L532B702

      M5026EN600345

       

      So, is this like an engineering sample or what's up with it? I have read online that selling these CPU's is illegal but that's as far as my knowledge about them goes.

      My question is, is it the CPU i bought or is it a (broken) engineering sample? Thanks in advance.
