The full serial number (ATPO) helps accurately identify your Intel® Boxed Processor, tray processor, or processor warranty period. The 2D Matrix contains the serial number for the processor that is readable by a third-party tool and some smartphone cameras. It's located on the outside edge of the processor.
Starting Q1 of year 2022, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ Desktop Processors and later Desktop Processor generations will feature a second 2D Matrix and the new Intel trademark () on the top of the processor. The second 2D Matrix will have the same full serial number (ATPO) as the first 2D Matrix that is located on the outside edge of the processor.
See the instructions below on how to read the full serial number (ATPO) using third-party tools and devices.
