A couple of weeks ago, we wrote about a spattering of overseas retailers selling Intel “KA” model CPUs marketed as being Avengers Edition processors. Now there is no doubt—Intel confirmed on Twitter that it has partnered with Marvel on a set of Core desktop processors featuring Avengers Collector’s Edition packaging.

Intel stopped short of listing exactly which Core CPUs are available with the themed packaging, and it did not divulge how much of a limited run this promotion is going to be. However, one interesting thing about the tie-in is that the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers game is not actually included. Because…well, I’m not actually sure.
