Thu, December 16 2010 | 4:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
In terms of performance the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC was on average, in the 13 games that we tested, 5% faster than the Radeon HD 5970, 31% faster than the GeForce GTX 480 and 53% faster than the Radeon HD 5870. Out of interest if you ignore the results from Metro 2033 and particularly S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC was on average 3% slower than the Radeon HD 5970 and just 39% faster than the Radeon HD 5870.

Quoting; "Some of forum members are reporting that they purchased Intel i7 920 processors from Newegg, but what they received was anything but a usable processor."
" The box looks real enough until you look closely and notice things like spelling errors and fake security tape..."

Here's a video off showing the extent of the counterfeit CPU and plastic heatsink/fan block.

Have you ever bought a CPU from Newegg or any other online retailer and received a similar item in the mail, instead of an actual processor?

UPDATE from Newegg:

"Newegg is currently conducting a thorough investigation surrounding recent shipments of questionable Intel Core i7-920 CPUs purchased from Initial information we received from our supplier, IPEX, stated that they had mistakenly shipped us “demo units.” We have since come to discover the CPUs were counterfeit and are terminating our relationship with this supplier. Contrary to any speculation, D&H Distributing is not the vendor that supplied us with the Intel Core i7-920 CPUs in question.

...We take matters like this extremely seriously, and are working in close cooperation with Intel and the appropriate law enforcement authorities to thoroughly investigate this incident."
