Intel Confidential doesn't always mean it's its own stepping.

Perhaps you ended up getting a 920 D0 chip that was specifically sent out to OEM's and a small number of retailers before mass production and availability.

That's the only explanation I can think of as to why it would have "Confidential" printed onto it.

920/930 D0 Engineering Samples do exist though.
In Progress...

I am in India and I purchased a core i5 650 3.2ghz engineering sample through ebay.The seller had mentioned that it is an ES and got it for a little less, but I was not aware of the ES restrictions from Intel. Please suggest whom I should contact to exchange it with a genuine retail processor.

Intel® ES Processors are not made available to the general public by Intel.

Contact your vendor or place of purchase if you have received an Intel® ES Processor in place of a production processor.

Why do I not believe the OP? It's very convenient of him to have lapped his CPU right after he noticed it.

I just contacted Intel and they said they will not exchange it, they only want the numbers on it to find out who sold it, but its a blank. they told me to keep it. its a wonderful CPU.
