Spoof or Truth New Egg Shipping Fake i7 Proceesors

"Intel acknowledged Monday that at least one counterfeit version of its Core i7-920 processor made its may into the U.S. market, and said it's trying to determine how many more are out there."

PCWorld Sumner Lemon, IDG News Service

This would really tick me off if I ordered say the Core i7-870 off of New Egg for aroung 569.99 and opend the box and got

what Hardpoc is reporting to be a Demo Box. Or even as they are reporting the Intel Core i7-920 at a retail price of 288.99.

From Hardocp's web site from New Eggs Public Relations here is the responce:
"Newegg is aware of a shipping error that occurred with certain recent orders of the Intel Core i7-920 CPU. After investigating the issue internally it appears one of our long term partners mistakenly shipped a small number of demo boxes instead of functional units. Our customer service team has already begun proactively reaching out to the affected customers. In line with our commitment to ensure total customer satisfaction, we are doing everything in our power to resolve the issue as soon as possible and with the least amount of inconvenience to our customers."
