Intel ES chip shows up on Ebay, seller claims Ivy Bridge E/EP or Haswell EP

Intel ES chip shows up on Ebay for auction, claimed to be Ivy Bridge-E/ Haswell-E

| CPU, APU & Chipsets News | Posted: Jan 23, 2013 2:05 am

A CPU has popped up on Ebay that the seller claims is either Ivy Bridge EP or Haswell EP. The seller says that it fits in his LGA 2011 motherboard, though the system does not boot up. Ivy Bridge EP is said to be a drop-in upgrade to LGA 2011 motherboards, though they will need an update for the BIOS before it will work.

From the post:

A Brand NEW Chip.

Says Q1DF in Qspec Code on the CPU cap.

 

Got this chip by chance, and I know It is either of Haswell-EP chip or Ivy Bridge-EP.

No further info is known unfortunately.

 

It fits to my LGA2011 socket very well but never boots up.

No power signal on the board.

 

The price is currently at $202.50 with $15 for shipping. Technically, this chip is property of Intel and they probably won't be happy with it being sold. That said, if you think you can get the chip to boot up on your system, you can find the auction on Ebay.
