Default What will an AMD Opteron be classified as ?

What will an Opteron show up as on Prime95 using Options/CPU ?
AMD Athlon or Opteron or even P4 because it has SSE2 support.
Display for older versions of Prime95 and the most current.

Which code path will it use ? Athlon,P3 or P4
The Opteron has SSE2 but could be viewed as an Athlon.
Or will the CPU features be the deciding point ?

For trial factoring it could use FP for up through 2^64 and SSE2 above.

Also in http://mersenne.org/primenet/summary.txt
will a new category AMD Opteron be added ?
