I'm new to this forum and i'm seeking advice about a new AMD PC I bought from Amazon.
I was running a bench mark test on my new AMD FX-6100 Six-Core Processor, and I received the warning below.
Warning W225 - The CPU is not a production (release) version but an ES (engineering sample or alpha/beta silicon) and thus not meant for distribution or extended usage. Such a CPU may behave differently or contain bugs/errata; the information displayed may be inaccurate.
Fix: If you have bought this CPU, return it for a production version.
I have contacted the company I bought it from but no reply as yet.
Please could someone give me information to find out for sure if this is an ES CPU.
Only way you'd tell for sure is take a look at the heat spreader on the cpu, which may or may not void your warranty. I'd wait to hear from them first and see what they say. Odds are it's a bios or software issue with misreading the cpu, especially if the PC is from a big firm that rewrites their bioses.
