Re-shoot of a sandy bridge core. I have not taken a picture of this specific chip before, but I have taken pictures of sandy bridge cores in the past. This one has less scratches and I have removed the dust in post processing. I’m not sure why, but the stitching software just does not like sandy bridge chips and I can never stitch a full one without significant warping. I’m working on seeing if I can correct for it in Photoshop.
I’m not exactly sure which CPU this is but it is probably a Pentium G630 or something like that, it has 2 cores.
