not so sure about this ... specially not *this* name you suggest :)

but athlon64-x2 for S940 and athlon64-am2 for sse3 capable cpus would be ki=
nd=20
of understandable for all

I think all this cpus are revision E and higher and should understand SSE3

for opterons a note in make.conf might be usefull

venice as said in another mail is not clear for all people and certainly it=
=20
does not appear on the box or elsewhere



=2D-=20

Jo=E3o
