I advise you to do what Wes reccomends; get WCPUID because it doesn't lie.
The Barton cores are higher performance at lower clock rates and have more
L2 cache IIRC. Applebred cores have way less L2 than Bartons/Tbreds because
they are intended to compete with Intel's Celeron processor.

CPUID shows it as a Model 8.. so that says non-barton..
But that just makes me wonder if these chips (at least in the unpackaged
form) are still being stored/produced..
