How to Find Your Processor Spec Number

The sSpec number, also known as the specification number, is a five character string (SL36W or SR0PM for example) printed on the processor and processor label.

How to find the sSpec number:

  • Read the boxed processor label as shown in Figure 1 below, or
  • Look at the markings on the processor as shown in Figure 2 below.

Figure 2: Find the sSpec number in the processor markings (two examples)


Note These sSpec number locations are subject to change. See your processor specification update documentation for the correct location for your specific processor.

Once you have identified your sSpec number, you can look up technical specs and other information about your processor using the Product Specifications and Comparisons Tool.
