Default Toledo.... San Diego.... Whats the difference?

Just wandered what the difference in name means....

Is it something to do with overclocking?

Im getting a 4600 dual core... but the site doesnt specify the name like toledo or san diego...

Sorry if its a stupid question!

I believe it reffers more to the architecture used. Like if two CPUs have the same core name, then they're probly just set at different speeds or something.
Opteron 175 + Scythe Infinity
Asus A8N32-SLI
2 gigs corsair XMS DDR 400
XFX geforce 6800 XT
X-navigator case
30G Maxtor + 250G Maxtor

the Toledo core is simply two San Diego cores on one processor die. in otherwords it's a dual core San Diego as opposed to the real San Diego core which is a single core. the 4600+ is neither. it is a Manchester core. it is a dual core but it is based on the Venice core.

Just as nitestick, said. Some times they call it codename.
