    Me thinks this could be the i3 Ivy Bridge. But being this early, it could be an A0. The chip has A4 written on it. Still early, though.

    hard to really compare as it's only clocked at 1.8GHZ, on top of it being early

    I haven't uploaded the SB benchmarks, but here they are so you can somehow compare:

    Reading the posts in the link you gave, the computer running the tests has a custom BIOS to add basic support to the processor. I think the ES chip can do better if there is more HW/SW support. Although it is also said, there, that this chip is supposed to be an entry-level chip.
    I'm still thinking that it's too early.

    Even considering all these things, those numbers really aren't bad for a lowly dual-core clocked at ~2/3 what it should be.

    BTW, the guy in the link says he's running that chip on a P67 board, but doesn't mention which board or manufacturer.
