Intel Blackops Engineering Sample CPU. Item is in good cosmetic condition.
Pulled from a clean working. Developmental / engineering Intel server. Has been fully tested to.
Ensure there are no issues with the processor and its functions. Here is an article we found authored by The Cpushack Museum. The fastest known Haswell is the 4Ghz i7-4790k but as of yet nothing faster is known (its likely Intel made something, just not known yet).
The Broadwell series actually saw a reduction in max clock speed, the i7-6850K 6-core running at only 3.8GHz and dissipating 140W (you can see why clock speed had to be lowered as the TDP is higher). Intel did make a special run of Broadwell-EP 14nm CPUs known loosely as the E5-2602v4 using a 10 core die with 4-cores active. This was rumored to have 10ML3 Cache but it is more likely that it retains the 25M of the 10-core die (like the Black Ops Ivy Bridges). Target frequency on these was 5.1GHz and the rumored customer was the NSA (National Security Agency) which is of no surprise.
These were to be rated at 165W TDP which is high, but not unreasonable. As of yet none have been seen in the wild.
