I recently purchased a computer from CyberPowerInc. Don't get me wrong, I like to build my own, but my time is now limited. Plus, I ordered a PCI-X card and they must have run out of the singles because they shipped it with and ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe motherboard! (Too bad they didn't include a second 6800 )Anywho - I'm running an Athlon 64 3500+ and want to tell whether or not I have the Newcastle or Winchester core. I have run a few different utilities suggested in other posts but am still wondering. CPU-Z says Winchester. CBID says Winchester, also. However, PC Wizard - written by the same guy who did CPU-Z says it's Newcastle. I don't want to pull everything off to look at the OPN, but I will if I have to. The AMD CPUInfo utility says Family.Model.Step is 15.31.0. Does that tell it? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

QUOTE 15.31.0. Does that tell it?
Yup. That's a Winchester

If your processor is already installed, you can use a CPUID-utility like CPU-Z or WCPUID to identify it:

A 939-pin Newcastle will return CPUID 'F-F-0' while a Winchester will return CPUID 'F-F-0' and extended CPUID 'F-1F'.
If you convert the hexadecimal figure '1F' to decimal, you'll get '31'
