Hey, can someone with arcane knowledge help me figure out what chip this is?
It's an Intel Pentium.
On the front of the package is etched:
On the back is printed:
A4 505 U
I doubt that I'll find a use for the chip itself. (If it even works.) I picked it up from our IT department's magic bin for geekly decor at my desk. But it'd be interesting to know how to actually figure out what it is.
Nah. Too heavy, and all those pins would stick me if I put it in my pocket!
I'll just keep it as a decorative item on the top of my monitor, sitting along side of my plastic shark eating the head of Sonny(sp?) the mascot of Cocoa Puffs on my mini Pez dispenser, my miniature Veritech action figure (was included in the package of Robotech for the GBA), a bunch of strange paper airplanes made ouf of Halls Defense wrappers, my binary clock, and a spare goniometer head from one of our instruments that I use when I work on supporting a new microscope camera.
Umm ... is that list of monitor-top decorations as damning as it sounds?
