I'm not sure if this means it's validated or not

yea sometimes CPUZ does that not sure if its a fluke and ur cpu is legit or not this is why i want to see W1zzard pop in ;)

kinda weird tho that yours has Rated FSB and it should say HT link instead on the bottom left

Well I'm probably going to just take it out and put my dual core back in so I can play GTAIV.

I'll take a pic of the CPU when I do that...but I'll leave it in so I can do the cpu-z thing

also my friend on steam was telling me that my bios should have a setting for enabling the 4 cores, but in the CPU list on this board, this cpu is not listed. only 2 thuban x6's...any ideas?

right now it's only running 1 core as you can see

well if its an engineering sample you have to manually set the clocks for one thing sort of like the AMD TWEAKER it had low clock speeds if your cpu is real then 9/10 its an engineering sample altho unlikely....

it might also be that your bios just dosent support the CPU period if so thats why its running as it is

Guy who I bought it from said he knows a guy at AMD

/g/ said it's an engineering sample.

It's an engineering sample and the motherboard doesn't support it so yes, everything is going to be out of whack. Casemods, have you tried updating to the latest bios on your motherboard?
A steam friend was going to walk me through it last night but when I opened the .exe, a cmd window opened, had some writing at the top but closed in less than a second, so I'm not sure how to do the update.

Usually, the best method is to update the bios within the bios. Your motherboard manual should have this information. What motherboard are you using?

Not going to happen on that motherboard. The CPU will not work correctly. You will need something with a newer chipset (AMD 8XX, or Nvifia 9xxa).

Sale of ES cpus is illegal. TPU doesn't condone ANY illegal activities.
Should I take this back to the guy that sold it to me then?

To me, technically, yes, as technically he stole it, and you are in possesion of stolen merchandise.

:eek:

If you are an AMD employee or agent that has this cpu legitimately, then it's all good.

He said his friend works at AMD

He said he got a lot of CPU's from him and they all have worked.

So maybe his friend just gets a bunch of free cpu's?

Is it illegal to give them away?

I doubt he would jeopardize his job at AMD...but I have no idea...

Maybe he didn't know it was an engineering sample because his friend just gave it to him...that sounds pretty reasonable...

I suggest you just leave the whole topic alone. And yes, if AMD were to call back all the 960Ts out there, and one person failed to return one, it could cause some issues for the person unable to return it.

ES cpus are given out on loan for testing purposes. Sometimes they end up in big OEM boxes though(I have quite a few ES intel cpus pulled from Dell boxes), however, there aren't really any 960T machines on the market, at least that I am aware of.


EDIT: however, if these cpus are launched, or about to launch, he may have been "given" the cpu permanently, but sale is still illegal. CPU does exist, and is real, obviously. But now you must understand the reaction Crazyeye had.

yea sorry for the garbage post but someone ive never seen joins the forums today and says they have a 960T its makes a man raise and eyebrow or 2 and a jaw drop as well lol

and since they havent been released publicly you can probably understand the *troll post* come on erocker i know damn well your a mod but if you had randomly stumbled across this first you would have had the same thoughts i did just your a mod so you cant step out line as often as us regular ppl who just get infractions *points at mailman*

Back in my day trolling was slightly more extreme then what this guy just done :laugh:

Good news on the zozma chips if they get released, shame I can't do anything with this info : [
