Was looking in my system info a couple of days ago and came across that the CPU full name was: Amd Athlon 64 X2 2800+ but the CPU Name was AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+... Any ideas what this is about why would the full name be 2800 + and the cpu name be 6000+.... Cuz indeed my processor is supposed to be a 6000+ .. Just wondering.. Thanks for any info on this
Where are you getting this information from? Download this and it should give you the proper information you seek. AMD CPUInfo for Althlon64 X2 Dual Core. The link is a direct download from the AMD website.
Got that info from a program called SIW which was posted on these forums, it collects and gathers info about your computer..
And that program you linked me clearly says that both my cores are 6000+ but anyways.. must just b SIW program being weird.. or something we don't know about... i wouldnt see why it would say the CPU full name is 2800+ ... Weird :S
Some programs like SIW and Everest have problems with reading Dual Core or 64 bit processor information. Not that these programs do (because I dont use either or a Dual Core processor) I dont know that but if your looking for info strictly on a processor the best place to go is the manufacturer. AMD has lot of tools and drivers for their processors. www.amd.com
