No way to tell from that little information. The "manufacturer SKU" or OPN as AMD calls it is the same for both "A" and "B" cores. The only way to tell is from the stepping code (the first five letters below the OPN on the cpu label) and seing if it ends in an "A" or a "B"

T-Bred... YES.

A Palamino core OPN would end in DMT3C (since they were 1.75V cores).

BTW. newegg has the same cpu for $1 less with free shipping...

You never know though. I ordered a 2100 from newegg a while back. In the description on the site it said T-bred, but it was a Polomino when I got it. I think they ship whatever's in stock.

I ordered a 2100+ from the first batch of 2100+ B newegg had exactly a year ago.

Since then it was the only processor guaranteed to be a B and not an A or Palomino on all of newegg.

Recently newegg renovated their site and that guarantee disappeared.

You are the first person in the past 12 months to have gotten a 2100+ that wasn't a B from newegg.

Did you order retail or OEM?

Only OEMs were guaranteed. If you ordered it while the guarantee was listed, simply contacting newegg would have resulted in you getting a B within a few days.

yes, i checked newegg first, but their shipping is 3-5day shipping, this is just for $1 more, free 2 day shipping, much faster
