First apologies if this question is in the wrong part of the forum I am new here. The specific question I have is how to identify what the core type is on an AMD 64 processor. I am currently price shopping and the seller does not always identify what core type they are offering at that price range. There is almost always a number such as this ADA3400AXBOX identifying the processor and I was wondering if there was some way to discern the core type using this product code/identifying key. This is of course assuming that it is not explicitly labeled on the processor box/package. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated - I know I want a Venice core and do not want to erroneously buy something else.

Thanks for any help with this.

ADA3400AXBOX sounds like a Newcastle core. Just go to Google.com and enter the number.

Yep, it's a newcastle core...
Go to http://www.amdcompare.com/us-en/desktop/' ">http://www.amdcompare.com/us-en/desktop/ and check the specs there (you can even enter the OPN directly). It'll tell you that:
Processor AMD Athlon 64
Model 3400+
Ordering P/N (Tray) ADA3400AEP4AX
Ordering P/N (PIB) ADA3400AXBOX
Operating Mode 32/64
Stepping CG
Frequency 2400Mhz
HT Speed 1600
Voltage 1.50V
Max Temp 70°C
Thermal Power 89W
L1 Cache 128KB
L2 Cache 512KB
CMOS Technology 130nm SOI
Socket Socket 754

(I don't get why they don't just tell you the core)

Then on this page http://www.tomshardware.com/20.../the...005/page20.html' ">http://www.tomshardware.com/20...harts_2005/page20.html you have a picture showing all AMD cpus. You can cross-reference the specs of the CPU and find the particular model

Thanks for the info I am off to get an AMD 64 3500+ Venice for my girlfriend's pc upgrade - the only problem is now she will probably defeat me in UT2004 lol.

Happy Holidays and thanks again for the information.
