How do I know if my Dual 1.8 G5 is an AMD 8131 machine?


Hi All:

I've been waiting for NAMM to see whether UA was going to announce a new firewire UAD-1, or something like that, and now that it seems nothing of the sort is in the cards, I'm ready to buy the Flexi-Pak to use with my Logic rig.

Before I do that, though, I want to find out whether my Dual 1.8 G5, which I bought secondhand recently, has the AMD 8131 chipset--can anyone tell me how to do that?

I've been nosing around the forums and the UA site all morning, but all I've come up with is this, from the March 2005 Support Report:

\"Note that the Apple part number is not specified anywhere on the machine; this number is only used when someone is actually ordering the machine. You can find the number on your original receipt.\"

They're kidding, right? Since I obviously don't have the original receipt, I'm hoping there actually is another way to find out which chipset my machine is using. Thanks!
