E0, C0, D0...
I know it's a rookie question, but what the heck do these mean?:doh:

Processor steppings. Just think of them as different revisions of processors that potentially improve thermals/performance/efficiency.
They usually start out as something like A0, which are sometimes engineering samples which run fairly hot and inefficient. Then it undergoes tweaks and is released as a revised, better processor.

and sometimes several revisions are needed for the end product to be profitable/marketable/competitive/etc...

yield rates per wafer, and so on.

edit : anyone waiting for sb e cpus? :D

Sure it is important, I meant it's not as complicated as I thought it would be,
I was thinking it's much more then a revision signature.

If Intel can bring improvements through a new revision on par with Wolfdale and Nehalem revisions, then a new rev. Sandy Bridge will be wŁnderbar!
