    Question about FPO and ATPO numbers

    Hadowken

      Hi Guys. according to below link, LGA-1150 based processors have their FPO(batch no.) and ATPO numbers on the 5th and 6th line respectively.

      http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/processors/000005609.html

       

      I've read that the FPO number is not unique. Sorry if this question is stupid for you but... Can there be more than 1 processors with the same FPO numbers?

       

      From my understanding... The serial number is the only unique digits of the processor. So it's a must that the last 4 digits of the serial number indicated on the box is the same as the one on the lower right side of the PCB of the processor.

       

      Please correct me if i'm wrong.

       

      Need some clarifications on this guys. Your reply would be very much appreciated.

       

      Thanks in advance!

          Hello, Hadowken:

           

          I've read that the FPO number is not unique. Sorry if this question is stupid for you but... Can there be more than 1 processors with the same FPO numbers?

               Correct, it is possible that processors share the same FPO numbers.

           

          Note the picture below;

          The serial number is a mix of the FPO number and the ATPO number. The ATPO is a unique number. For example, you can find a processor with the same FPO number as yours but it the ATPO number will never match.
