    CPU label..

    I.e. my 3700+

    ADA3700DKA5CF
    CCBIE0614DPMW

    Magenta= Core/Cache/Voltage
    Yellow- Revision- CF= E6
    Lime= Stepping (CCBIE)
    Underlines numbers- WEEK/Month it was made 14th week of 06
    DPMW is an unknown quality code still..

    Its different for intel, ofcourse.
