I want to buy an AMD Thouroughbred processor and I'm not sure I can identify it. Is the OPN (e.g. AXDA2200DKV3D) the only way to identify it, and does this OPN I wrote mean a Thoroughbred 2200+ ?
What software can I use to identify a genuine Thoroughbred from a fake ??

If the CPU is not installed, the OPN is about the only way to identify a CPU.
An Athlon XP 2200+ is either a Thoroughbred or a Thorton - there are no Palominos with that rating.
You can distinguish a T-Bred from a Thorton by its OPN - a T-Bred's OPN starts with 'AXDA' whereas a Thorton's OPN would start with 'AXDC'
Also, a Thorton has a larger(longer) die than a T-Bred since it is a Barton with half of the L2-cache disabled.
QUOTE What software can I use to identify a genuine Thoroughbred from a fake ??
By 'fake' you mean prolly a CPU that has been overclocked/remarked?
A CPUID-utility won't help you here, as they will only display the speed your CPU is currently running - not what it should be.
If you suspect a CPU might be remarked, you should look closely at it for any modifications, particularly modifications on the bridges and possibly the pins.
