My computer supports two CPUs, but currently only has one installed and I would like to buy a matching 2.8 Xeon, so I need to match the stepping on the second one. I would like to find out what the stepping is of the one already in the machine without opening the case and visually inspecting the CPU. I don't want to install Windows to find out what my stepping is.
From the "stepping" information given above from /proc, can you tell what the stepping of the CPU is? The value 4 doesn't make sense, because when I look at the Intel website, it gives steppings D0 etc.
