Also, I didn't claim that FAA encoded the core revision.
OSP is the prefix for DC Opteron. I can accept that, as OSA is the prefix for SC Opteron.
Next we have FAA.
F = organic package, like the Rev E4 Opterons.
A = voltage
A = die case max temp of 71 C
6 = 2MB total L2
"CB" is the core revision. I could believe that stands for E6 dual core.
My trouble is with the "A" voltage line. For single core E4 parts, that signifies either 1.35v or 1.4v.
So you are telling me that the A really only means "variable"... Hmmm.
I suppose that is possible.
It seems odd, though, that they would not want to be more specific, doesn't it?
Also, were you joking when you said AMD gave you permission to post information about the 275 before the NDA expires on Thursday? Because why would AMD do that?
Regarding 68W... I suppose if AMD can produce 35W 2.2GHz Turions, then a 68W 2.2GHz DC Opteron 275 is not out of the question.
