    I think he means that some AMD processors are green, while others are brown. This indicates different types of core - some boards have trouble running newer core designs. Not too sure which is which though.

    Green or brown makes absolutely no difference at all. You seller is talking a load of BS.

    yep, brown/green do not coordinate which core, simply which material they get.

    If you get a customer, or an employee, who thinks he's Charles Bronson, take the butt of your gun and smash their nose in.
