Strange Sonnet CPU on eBay

http://www.ebay.ca/ulk/itm/142133125048

  I've never seen one quitehttp://www.ebay.ca/ulk/itm/142133125048  like this, and apparently neither has the seller.  Looking at the photos in the listing, it appears to have a detachable VRM.  I'm guessing this is an early variant.  Can any of you identify the model?

Re: Strange Sonnet CPU on eBay

Doesn't speak much for the seller in that he didn't note where he pulled the CPU from. I've never seen a detachable VRM on one of these either.

It's definitely a G4 from both the code and the connector. I can tell you what it isn't: it's not an Encore Duet/MDX and it's not for the Sawtooth. My guess is for either the QS or the DA, probably the former.

I have one like this but the VRM is on the same PCB.  Its on my quicksilver and is a 1.2 ghz i think, if I unbury it Ill take a picture.
