Hi.
I am trying to identify this CPU. Its supposed to be an Athlon Thunderbird 1200 and most of the OPN seems correct.
However rather than a simple, single A at the start it reads AHL 1200 AHT 3 B
I have checked the AMD CPU identification document and it seems to identify it as pretty much what an Athlon1200 (older 100FSBx2) models specs should be. However I am pretty confused by the starting AHL prefix. What CPU is this? Can anybody help?

The entire serial/ID is.

AHL 1200 AHT 3 B
AGOIA 0233 GPAW

hmm...according to info on this page, that's a small form factor processor which is probably for low voltage applications. The "H" in "AHT" means 1.55V.

It's a 35W Low-power Desktop Athlon SFF(Small Form Factor) clocked at 1.2GHz.
It is a Palomino(model 6), tho, not a Thunderbird(model 4) and should consequently perform slightly better than a 1.2GHz T-Bird - unlike the T-Bird it should also support SSE.

Thanks for the help guys. That would explain a number of things about its appearance also, the bridges all seem wrong for a Thunderbird.

The B at the end indicates it has a max FSB of 200Mhz (100x2?) which is consistent with Thunderbird 200FSB 1200, I had thought that palamino started at 266mhz. Is this a hybrid of some fashion? and will it work in on my older Motherboards? I have a quite old Gigabyte GA-7ixe4 and an Epox 8kta+ The 8kta+ ought to be happy running somewhere up to 1.2 or 1.3 according to the tech literature, though epox europe and epox usa disagree on this, usa suggests 1.1 is the fastest it will recognise. I had assumed that they were all referring to T-birds. Next question...and I'm off to Epox and Gigabyte to ask it there too, Will my Motherboard support palamino?
Thanks for your help so far guys, but i suspect I shall be back again....soon.
