NewEgg Fake Intel Core i7 Processor Unboxed


Here’s a look at the fake Intel Core i7 that was accidentally shipped out by NewEgg a while back. The company “has thrown supplier IPEX Infotech of Freemont [corrected] California under the bus for this fiasco; in a statement released to Information Week, the retailer said, ‘We have since come to discover the CPUs were counterfeit and are terminating our relationship with this supplier.’”

But luckily for us, my neighbor, Microsoft TechNet columnist Greg Steen, just happened to be one of the lucky 200 or so buyers, and he let me borrow it for the day. As you can see, the box looks very real, and the weight of the package is perfect.
