Reporting an attempted sale of an Intel engineering sample CPU

I'd like to report the attempted sale of an Intel Engineering CPU to Intel. Someone tried to link this sale in our FORUM but I have removed the sale as I believe it is illegal:

Nice found. How did he get his hands on that?

I don't know where this seller got their hands on this CPU but I personally don't like Intel Confidential material being sold in this manner.

I agree with you there.

Rick, I am fully versed in Intel ES Samples. Intel ES processors are the sole property of Intel. By that reckoning then someone is attempting to sell Intel property illegally which is why I reported it here. I just checked and it is still on ebay. Doesn't Intel want to prevent someone from stealing their property?

Found some people selling a prebuilt pc with an es processor here in the Philippines. Theyre selling it through a website and app called Shopee. Here are some screenshots I took of their product and one of them confirming it is an i7 6400T

This guy in Hong Kong is selling a number of Intel (ES) Engineering Sample X9000 mobile CPU's.

Here is a link to his eBay store and the particular sale in question.

P.S. This eBay seller is selling numerous other ES (Engineering Sample) CPUs as well.

P.S. 2 This seller appears to be using a second eBay user id to sell even more ES (Engineering Sample) CPUs.

See this link also.

Hi,

I have just realised I have been sold a laptop with an ES chip in it (according to SiSoft Sandra and your Processor Identification utility).

I have contacted the supplier in regards to this matter and I am assuming they will ask or me to ship the laptop back etc.

I wasn't sure whether I needed to also report this matter with you - should I be seeking any form of compensation for this sale (due to loss of laptop while I ship it back and then wait for the CPU to be replaced etc.)

I have attached an image of the output from the identification utility - it is a i7-3612QM CPU.

Best Regards,

Will

wfoster232, thank you for the heads up. I will forward this to the proper team for further investigation.

In fact you should check back with your place of purchase so the unit is replaced by them, and any compensation need to be discussed with them directly.

I have been cheated by this seller xtrememicro on ebay who sold me 2 engineering samples . I am surprised how blatantly he is operating. He has currently over a 100 ES CPUs listed for sale and must have sold thousands in the last year itself. The link to his ebay shop is http://www.ebay.com/sch/xtrememicro/m.html?_nkw=intel&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= xtrememicro | eBay
