How do I determine what core my Duron has?

    Hi everyone. I just bought a oem Duron 1600 from Frys and want to know what
    core it has. I guess the "B" core is better for overclocking from what I've
    heard. How do I tell?


    TIA

    also it seems (can not say for 100%) that the second row of the stepping
    follows the same last letter pattern as the t'breds - ie if it ends in 'b'
    it is a 'b' core (cpuid 681) and if it ends in 'a' it is an 'a' core (cpuid
    680)
