Hi Scott,

out of curiosity I am trying to find out which version of the T8100 I have in my ThinkPad. CPU-Z shows revision M0 which according to the Intel Processor Spec Finder page http://tinyurl.com/52juav narrows the chip down to one of eight different versions. The Intel CPU identifier utility is not much help in this regard as it doesn't differentiate and shows a CPU Revision of 60C whatever that means.

Is it actually possible to find the sSpec# using software?

I Googled around but couldn't find any additional help on this.

Thanks!
-Paul

Not if there are more than one sSpec# for a given CPU stepping.

Note that all of the T8100s are essentially the same. If you study the table you reference, you'll see that they all have the exact same specs (there are errors in some of the entries though), and they are available in two different physical packages. Two of the chips are listed as FCBGA (Flip-Chip Ball Grid Array), which means they are soldered in to the motherboard, while the others are FCPGA (Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array), which means they are chips with pins plugged into sockets. The only other notable difference is the OEM part number, which tells me that different sSpec# numbers merely indicate different batches of the same chips, but for different OEMs. Scott.

Thanks Scott, after the post I did noticed that they were all essentially the same spec wise.
