Fake Intels on sale

I already knew that there were fake electronic components of all kinds (don’t ask, but I work in the electronics industry and my own employer has sad stories to tell – but wouldn’t 🙂 ), but I believed that this was limited to small cheap components. I was wrong.

The US retailer NewEgg indicated this week that they found in their stock what appears to be fake Intel Core i7 920 CPUs. Actually, they would have sold a small number of them before becoming aware of the issue.

What a world!
