    This has been an amazing CPU. It blazes through my workloads like a hot knife through butter, but! I bought it on Ebay and what I was sent was an engineering sample. These are not to be sold since they are given by Intel for review purposes. I contacted the buyer and he basically told me to piss off. I contacted Intel and they said to file a police report which I did. Moral of the story: If you buy a CPU that says "Intel Confidential" on it DON'T! It will not be covered by Intel warranty and like me you will basically be in possession of stolen merch. Intel know about my CPU now but I would hate for anyone else to be duped.

    Well, it's intel HEDT, 8 core, 3.2 GH and Turbo boosts up to 4.0GH using intel's own TBM3.0 software. Excellent choice for a CG Workstation for Generalists (Animations, Simulations & Rendering) Cons: Expensive.

    Amazing, I have so many things open without a problem....

    Just check that you are receiving the correct one.... If you zoom in the photo in which all the parts are the front sticker of the Intel says i7-6800 even when I bought the I7-6900, at the end in the processor says the correct one, but well, check after open it

    Expensive. Overpriced. Especially when compared to Ryzen. But performance is still great and while overclocking on Broadwell-E isn't excellent, it still does OK. Managing 4.3GHz @ 1.275v.

    Freakin' awesome! Using After Effects and scrubing the timeline is always up to date. This CPU is so fast. Highly recommend.

    It's a great CPU, don't get me wrong, but I can't believe I bought this for $1000 back in 2016. Compared to Ryzen and the newer gen 8-core CPUs from Intel, this was pretty much over twice as expensive for the exact same performance.
