Unfortunately, you will not find any detailed official specifictions or Datasheets (beyond some very basic info on the product info pages) for any current AMD mobile parts on AMDs website.

The reason for this is probably the fact that Laptops/Notebooks are not (yet) meant to be built by an individual user and most OEMs don't even offer BIOS-updates beyond a couple of necessary bugfixes either /sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' />

While I can't provide a link to official specifications for this part, I'll still answer your question:

What you have here is a 62W Standard/Mainstream Mobile Athlon 64 processor using a CG-rev. 'Clawhammer'-core (Model 4, rev. SH7-CG, CPUID: 'F-4-A' with a 1.40V Vcore, 95°C max. temp and 1MB L2-cache.

As for your upgrade-options, you should be able to use any mobile Athlon 64 processor with an equal (62W) or lower (35W) power-consumption class.
However, a BIOS-update will be mandatory, if your replacement/upgrade processor has a newer revision than rev. CG (i.e. D0 or E-rev parts).

If you wish to upgrade, contact your Laptops' manufacturer to see if they offer a BIOS-update for your model.

If you have any further questions, feel fre to ask /happy.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='happy.gif' />

(Bummer about AMD's making the specs non-public. However, since you generously volunteered to research this...) I am looking on eBay for a replacement 3000+. The part numbers being offered include AMA3000BEX5AP, AHN3000BIX5AR, and AMN3000BIX5AP. They are all being offered around the same price, so which would be "best"?

Go here for good information on the different part numbers. Pay close attention to those first 3 letters, as they can indicate alot. Based off of me going to this site and comparing those numbers, if those are your only choices, would be to stay away from the "AHN" part, as it is NOT an Athlon 64, and pick the BIX5AP as the "I" indicates a 1.4V Core vs the "E" at 1.5V. The "AMA" also shows that it is an 81.5W MAX TDP part vs the "AMN" which has a MAX. TDP of 62W, due to the difference in core voltage required for stock speed.

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for pointing me (and others, I'm sure) to the site.
