The Athlon 64 3000+ (ADA3000AEP4AX) is a Week 17 CG stepping
core clocked at 2Ghz and has 512KB L2 cache. One thing worth noticing is that
the multiplier is pre-programmed by the speed grading machine through the pins,
not by the die or the package.

There are other interesting areas like the System Level Test
where the processors are plugged into motherboards together with graphics cards
and memories to do full validation tests.
