What does it mean when a FRU is listed as "Screened?" Thanks.

I've found two threads that claim the SLAYX s-spect of the T9500 has a lower VID range than the SLAQH s-spec, but have not seen anything authoritative on the matter from Intel or other sources. Do they differ in VID range as asserted? Thanks.

According to the latest Specification Update, they only differ in that SLAYX S-Spec processors are screened to avoid Erratum AZ52 (Processor May Unexpectedly Assert False THERMTRIP# After Receiving a Warm Reset). The VID ranges and other specifications are identical. Scott.

If by "FRU" you mean "CPU" <g>, then it means that the processors were filtered via a testing process and then sorted according to the results. In the case of SLAYX vs. SLAQH it means that the processors were tested for Erratum AZ52, and those that passed the test (i.e. didn't have the erratum) were assigned the SLAYX specification. Scott.
