Intel LGA 2011-3 Motherboard and Haswell-E CPU Appear on eBay

Could this be the very first Intel Haswell-E processor to hit eBay? We noticed that there is a listing up for an Intel Confidential Xeon processor with stepping QFGH that is being sold along with an Intel LGA 2011-3 motherboard. It can be yours for a $2,597.77 with free shipping.

Here is a gallery of the images in the listing:

The listing  description states the following:

 “One, used, Intel Xeon Confidential QFGH Haswell E5 v3? with motherboard.  Processor is in great physical shape, we pulled it and placed it in a static bag.  The motherboard has some damage as shown in the pictures.  We did not have the parts to test the motherboard so we are selling it as-is.  We are unsure the specifications of this setup.  We are open to offers as the value is indeterminable.”

That sure looks like it is an Haswell EP Xeon, which is in the same general family as Haswell-E as they share the same socket. Intel LGA 2011-3 with X99 chipset will make up the enthusiast-class desktop platform Haswell-E processors when they come to market. These images give you a great idea of what the processors and the socket will look like.

    Forgot to mention the clocks will be:

    5820K: 3.3 – 3.8Ghz (turbo)
    5930K: 3.5 – 4.0Ghz (turbo)
    5960X: 3.0 – 3.3Ghz (turbo)

    Middle or late 2015?

    It has been officially announced that the new Haswell-E (extreme) CPU’s will be released in September (14th IIRC) of this year – 2014, not 2015.

    The 5820K, 5930K, and 5960X were all announced in the lineup. The 5820K and 5930K each with 15MB L3 cache and 6 Cores / 12 Threads, and the flagship 5960X with 20MB L3 cache and 8 Cores / 16 Threads.

    They will all use the X99 series motherboards with support for Quad-Channel DDR4 with a starting speed of 2133MT/s and topping out somewhere around 4100-4200MT/s. They top 2 models will each support 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes, while the smaller 5820K will support (24 iirc, please correct if I’m remembering the wrong number).

    Pricing at release date is about $600 for the 5930K and $1,100 for the 5960X but will most likely drop soon after like its predecessors. Sorry, again I didn’t really pay much attention to the 5820K, but assume probably about 400-450.

    This is not rumor anymore – this is official release info from Intel themself.

    Looks like it’s already been taken down. Would have been interesting to know if it was the real deal.

      Looks like it was the real deal and it being taken down hours after this was posted due to the attention it got is even further confirmation.
