    Hell, £12k for 48 cores and 64GB of RAM is a pretty decent price really.

    "No returns accepted" would be ringing alarm bells for me - unless they can guarantee they're genuine I wouldn't bother.

    If they've been taken from AMD without permission, surely they can get ebay to stop the sale?

    Most likely fake, given the no returns accepted part.

    If they were legit, I'm sure Intel would want to get them.

    48 processing cores more RAM that should ever be allowed on a PC and a mobo OR a new car. Tell me forum which would YOU rather have?

    I don't get why they named it after the most boring place, slap bang in the middle of France... the only thing "fast" about Magny-Cours were the Formula 1 cars that used to race there.... but not anymore!

    Hmmm, the sweet smell of Scam...

    "No return accepted", ofc, how you gonna accept a return when you sold a regular Opteron photoshoped for eBay at the little price of $7000 :p

    Must be a pain in the nuts and an Epic embarrasment when you find out out you just got a crappy regular opteron for that price :D

    If I had to guess - and it is just a guess - I'd say it's a play on words. "Magny-Cours" = "Many-Cores"
