How to Tell Which Core Athlon 64s Have

  1. How do I tell which core Athlon 64s have just by looking at the die? I want to get a Venice core for my 939 Athlon64 3200 so are there any markings on the die that show that it is venice or winchester?

    you can tell which core it is by reading the OPN code printed on the heatspreader.

    the OPN code of a 3200+ winchester is ADA3200DIK4BI

    the OPN code of a 3200+ venice is ADA3200DAA4BP (E3 revision) or ADA3200DAA4BW (E6 revision)

    cheers :wave:
