    Like the topic says; how can you tell? If someone could tell me or toss me a link that will give me information on identifying my core that would be great.

    Thanks.

    PS: Its an Athlon 64 3500+ I am looking at buying.

    well you have to look at the chip. There is a window on the box and see the code i have shown in the pic below.
    Thats what tells u which core it is.
    AA4BP is venice.
    AA4BW is new E6 core.

    AMD Processor Identification Guide - Saved it a long time ago.
    this will give ya all info.
    Dont remember the link.
    have updated it a bit myself.

    Divided it into four sections:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Desktop (Single Core)
    Mobile (Single Core)
    Desktop (Dual Core)
    Server (Single & Dual Core)
    And within each section, it is sorted by age, oldest to newest

    Identification
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    to break things down, the first line on your heatspreader or cpu should look something like this:
    ADA3500DAA4BP
    AAABBBBCDE1FF
    AAA = which line of cpu's

    ADA = Desktop
    AMA = DTR
    AMN = Mobile

    BBBB = PR number

    C = which socket and lid type
    A = s754, lidded
    B = s754, unlidded
    C = s940, lidded
    D = s939, lidded

    D = Voltage rating
    A = variable (1.35-1.4)
    K = 1.35v
    I = 1.4v
    E = 1.5v
    C = 1.55v

    E = Temperature rating. basically, your cpu is rated stable at stock speeds + voltages up to this temperature
    A = variable (65-70c)
    X = 95c
    P = 70c
    K = 65c
    I = 63c

    1 = L2 cache size
    6 = 2048kb
    5 = 1024kb
    4 = 512kb
    3 = 256kb
    2 = 128kb

    FF = Core type
    AP = C0 Clawhammer, s754
    AR = CG Clawhammer, s754
    AS = CG Clawhammer, s939
    AX = CG Newcastle, s754
    AW = CG Newcastle, s939
    BI = D0 Winchester, s939
    BP = E3 Venice, s939
    BN = E4 San Diego, s939
    BU = E5 Newark, s754
    LD = E0 (?) Lancaster, s754
    BV = E6, Manchester, s939
    CD = E6, Toledo, s939
    BW = E6, venice , s939

    No need for any of that. Just download cpu-z and it will tell you on the main screen
