E0 stepping with Core i7-3770K ES (Engineering Sample)
In the existing CPU-Z v1.60, ES (Engineering Sample) of Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K features E0 stepping, so what about the retail models?
We may be curious about what stepping it will feature when Ivy Bridge processors officially launch. Judged from latest BIOS of Gigabyte Z68 series motherboards, it mentions that it supports Intel 22nm Ivy Bridge CPU E1 stepping. So we could infer the retail Ivy Bridge models won’t feature E0 stepping. It remains to be seen what the difference between EO and E1 stepping products are.
