Oh you mean what the core type is....I don't know much about them, but i know the venice is a good core and so is a clawhammer. Newcastle is probably the worst one out of them (I think, but I'm not saying that it isn't a good core, because it still is)

Oh right yeah you meant core TYPE not material.
Venice = 512KB L2 cache SSE3 instructions included 64 bit uses low voltage and is cooler than most built on a 90 nm process.
San Diego = 1Mb L2 cache SSE3 instructions included 64 bit uses retains a lower voltage advantage and is quite cool for its speed built on a 90 nm process.
Winchester = Same as venice but older and uses SSE2 instructions and is hotter with more voltage needed.
Clawhammer= more of a mmystery they are a bit rare they are 130nm build process and have a 1mb cache quite hot with normal voltage needs.
Newcastle = old 130nm build process quite hot.
Thats the 64 bit ones i know from AMD dont know much about intel or anything 32bit from AMD or than the barton cores which is only because i have one. San diego is the best then its venice. The cual core ones dont follow the same naming principle yet they are just X2s and all you need to know about them as they are best money can buy.
