    How to convert from "family x model y" to "Xeon E5420" name?


      I'm running a Fedora linux on a used bladecenter and want to determine the exact processor in use on these blades.  /proc/cpuinfo shows the following for all 8 cores:

      vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
      cpu family      : 15
      model           : 6
      model name      :                    Genuine Intel(R) CPU 3.20GHz
      stepping        : 1
      cpu MHz         : 3192.001


      dmidecode shows similar things, but no actual "marketing" model number.  It does have a ID: 61 0F 00 00 FF FB EB BF in there which might be useful.


      How do I know what actual model Xeon these are from the family and model numbers?  I want to print the actual Intel spec sheet for my bosses... I'm guessing that windows users use the Intel CPU ID tool, but I can't reboot these servers to Windows just for that.  I've searched the intel sites and the web for a conversion chart but can't find a cross-reference anywhere.  Hopefully this is an easy question that I'm just missing the right search term...


      Thanks in advance,
