    Curious about a few thigns here

    The new Chips.. (AppleBreds, Bartons, Thoroughbred) .. that are being sold..
    Are they all the SAME core..

    Just curious cause I got a 2000+ Thoroughbred for a old system as a
    replacement and it's got this new transparent kinda case that hte
    newerBartons and AppleBreds have..

    So it makes me wonder if they are still making the Thoroughbreds or if they
    are just doing a Re-Lable of the Bartons..

    The core doesnt look as lenglty as it does on my Barton so I am just curious
    to what hte answer is (if anyone knows)..

  3. 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..
