Some of Intel’s new Skylake-EP processors have appeared on eBay, with the seller claiming that this model is a 28-core 2GHz unit called the E5-2600 V5.

The images of this new CPU match what we have already seen in LGA 3647 CPU leaks, though at this time is is difficult to tell if this listing is genuine. Regardless, whoever one of these two matching CPUs will need an LGA 3467 motherboard to use it, motherboards that are not publically available at this time.  

While there is nothing illegal about this listing, it is certainly one that Intel will need to investigate, as at this time Skylake-EP is only available to select early partners, which should leave the company wondering who is selling these samples to the public. 

This Intel Xeon CPU is listed with the P 8136 name, which does not match any known Intel naming scheme, though this CPU is listed as a 28-core, 56-thread Xeon with 38.75MB of cache and a TDP of 165W.

With a price tag of $3750 and no publically available motherboards to support them, it is unlikely that these unreleased CPUs will be sold anytime soon.
