Overview of Intel® Boxed Processor Numbers: Batch (FPO) and Serial(ATPO)
Batch number (known as FPO - Finished Process Order) and serial number (known as ATPO - Assembly Test Process Order) determine if your processor is eligible for a warranty exchange or return.
Both batch number and serial number (as well as partial serial number) can be used in the warranty center to check the status of the processor's warranty coverage and obtain processor warranty expiration dates. All Intel® Boxed Processors have these numbers listed on the processor package label.
|Batch number (FPO)||Located on the top of the processor|
|Human readable partial serial number (partial ATPO)- Last three to five digits from serial number (ATPO)||Located on the outside edge of the processors|
|2D matrix contains the serial number for the processor that can be read by a third-party tool and some smart phone cameras.||Located on the outside edge of the processor|
