Hey there.

I've read several of you mention DTR A64s. What are those? How can I know if I have one? As far as I can make out, they have 1MB L2 Cache and use less voltage. I imagine they're the ones designed to be on laptops. What other advantages do they carry?

DTR = Desktop Replacement, which is basically an oversized Laptop. They're ClawHammer cores and have a slightly lower TDP that desktop chips. The only advantage to them is that DTRs and Mobiles are the only ways to buy ClawHammer cores these days except for the 3700+.

Well mine is the 62watt True mobile, it uses a lower vcore (1.4 vs 1.5) but, yeah, they do overclock very well, 2.5-2.6 is quite common.

Ooooh. Does that mean that my 1.5V 3200 ClawHammer sporting it's good ol' 1MB L2 is a DTR in itself? Kinky!

Sorta... Chances are yours is the much older C0 Revision, whereas all DTRs (except some 3400s) are the new CG revision that runs cooler, has improvments to the on-die memory controller for better compatability, and overclocks better. The DTRs also have lower TDP (81.5 watts vs 89 watts on the desktop).

Yeah, but then there's also different steppings... C0's and CG's.

CG being better because it has an improved memory controller = more stable overclocking

Il crap-o! You're right. I shall weep in my slumber and laugh while I shower.
