SPEC codeA SPEC code is a five character identification that uses both letters and numbers. The SPEC code is printed on the top of computer processors (as can be seen circled in red in the image) and their packaging labels.

The SPEC code may be used to look up technical information about the processor such as performance, compatibility and the country it was in which it was manufactured. These specifications may be obtained both on the manufacturer's website or though an online search.
