    You can tell by the model number on the die itself. Once you get the number, just type it into a Google search and that should tell you (worked for me). Otherwise you could go to AMD.com and maybe can hunt around for some chart that'll help you.

    Not sure. Maybe the proggy WCPUID can but I can't remember if it gives that kind of info or not, I'm at work right now.
