View Full Version : Identifying a CPU...

Not too long ago somebody wanted me to build them a new computer (Q6600, 4GB DDR800, some nForce680i SLi ASUS mobo, dual 8800GT 512MBs) and in turn he paid me cash and let me have his older components. One of the components was a s939 A64. I'm just curious if there is a way to know whether it is an X2 or not. I know in the first line on CPU where it reads "ADA3800DEP4AW"... the "3800" means it is an Athlon64 3800. But is that 3800 X2 or just the single core?

Or is there a way to know without installing it in my rig?

TIA

Okay, thanks. I was hoping it was an X2 cause a buddy of mine really needs a dual core CPU. Since it's single core, he probably wont be able to use it. Guess I could still make use of it, build a Kubuntu box around it.

Thanks guys. :D
