I just got a new 2500+ and here are the stepping numbers :

AXDA2500DKV4D Z369687K30031
AQYHA 0346WPMW

What can I do with this chip and is it unlocked from factory?

If it follows like previous 2500s, you will do 2.2-2.5GHz. Also, it seems the majority of chips produced after 0339 are factory locked. Only one way to find out for sure and that's to test it.

Every chip past week 43 is coming factory locked. Yours is a week 46 (0346). As for results, if you have good RAM (anything with BH5 chips) and a good mobo, you can expect to hit 200FSB on stock volts, and get it up to around roughly 220 at higher volts. Results will vary greatly on the RAM though
