Intel CPU

Intel CPU On Intel website, I notice that the CPU's for Chinese market are specifically identified as such. Are they internally different from the same model of CPU supplied to Western markets? I ask, because more and more computer retailers in NZ are Chinese, and I wonder if they import their CPU components from China for sale here, and there is a fundamental difference that we should be aware of?

Its to implant the required 'bug' for Chinese internet censorship.

Does that mean we get the bug and censorship too?

Errrmmm..For real?

Yeah but because Stelen is now gone from power, no-one except the Chinese authorities will know what youre up to.

So in all seriousnessIf you put a genuine Intel CPU in a NZ computer used in NZ, but the CPU was sourced (by the Chinese computer shop in NZ) from the Chinese marketplace (in China), the danger is........what, exactly?

OKhttp://ark.intel.com/cpu.aspx?groupId=33923 Under the block diagram, 1/3 way down the web page, under heading 'processor ordering information'. First item in the list of 3, with ref BXC80569Q9450

The specs are identical At a guess I would suggest that it is just a packaging/language point of difference - or maybe protectionist pricing. Cant see anything to be concerned about.
