Processor Model number
Processor model numbers are used to distinguish between microprocessors with different sets of features and different characteristics, such as speed, level 1 and level 2 cache, etc. The model numbers can be used to identify only basic features and most important characteristics, and may not be used to identify all features/parameters of the CPU. For example, model numbers never identify CPU ID, core stepping, core voltage, maximum CPU temperature and a few other parameters. If you need to find out all details on specific processor please use S-spec numbers for Intel processors or order product numbers for AMD microprocessors.
For more information on Intel model numbers please see Intel processor (model) numbers page.
For more information on AMD model number please see Athlon XP, Athlon 64, Sempron and Turion model number and Opteron model numbers pages.
