Intel Engineering Sample?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, It's too late to really supply any proof now as I've lapped my CPU.

But ummm, do Intel ES have "Confidential" printed on the top of their chips?

Mine isn't showing up as an ES in CPU-Z but I'm 100% sure that it had "Confidential" Printed on it before I lapped it.

Any ideas?

Engineering Samples usually are stamped Confidential, as they are considered to be Intel Property.

Oh well, I can't honestly do anything about it now as I lapped it.

I didn't really think about it too much till now.

If you bought it at a store its most likely retail. Is the multiplier locked?

No It isn't locked.

I bought it online.

Not having locked multipliers is a sure sign of either an extreme edition, or an engineering sample. Since yours isn't an extreme, it'll be an ES. Probably a later engineering sample tho, since it has all the 920 microcode (which is why it shows up as a 920 in cpu-z)

Not a big box store, I assume? eBay or something since ES are not allowed to be sold.

Keep an eye on it. While Engineering Samples have some cool qualities, one of the not-so-cool qualities is that the chip is usually (or at least has had the potential) to have been put through the fire. Also, depending on where you got it, if it was an engineering sample for a review site, it was probably stressed like there's no tomorrow.

Also, alot of times, people dont have permission to sell engineering samples (per Intel rules, since engineering samples, if distributed, are done so for very specific purposes), and require specific permission from Intel to be sold/transferred since ESs are still the property of Intel. Luckily, the only physical evidence of this appears to have been lapped away, but the chip would still (very likely) show up in programs like CPUZ as an ES.

And dangit all, beaten to my point once again... at least it was Duckie, I can live with that.
