Some intel’s upcoming Core i7 processors in the Broadwell-E CPU family has been listed over at eBay. The three flagship processors (Core i7-6950X, Core i7-6900K and Core i7-6850K) are all part of the HEDT (High-End Desktop) lineup which is aimed at enthusiasts and high-performance users who need the best performance capabilities available.

The processors listed on eBay are indeed the first Broadwell-E processors which can be bought directly from the buyer. In fact, the Core i7-6900K that was listed for $875 US has already been sold. The remaining two chips, the Core i7-6950X and Core i7-6850K are still up for grabs. The Core i7-6950X processor has been listed for $1750.0 US and the Core i7-6850K processor has been listed for $575.00 US.

All three processors which are listed do actually work with X99 boards but you need a BIOS. Plus there’s no guarantee if these chips will work or not if you end up buying one. So with that in mind, if you want to upgrade to Broadwell-E you should definitely wait for official launch but in the mean time, you are assured that Broadwell-E launch is very close.
