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:
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.
According to the information you provided and the link provided above, your unit is an Engineering Sample, please see below;
The fact the unit is an Engineering Sample does not mean that is broken, an Engineering Sample is used in the product design cycle prior to product launch.
