Today I was trying to determine if I held a Cubieboard 1 or Cubieboard 2 in my hand. I had installed heatsinks over the cpu so I could not see the familiar "A10" or "A20" designation.

I decided after some investigation that the best way to see which ARM cpu the board has installed is to look at /proc/cpuinfo
