Some 386DX 16MHz Intel processors had a small bug which appeared as a software problem. The bug involved occurred when running true 32-bit code in a program such as within OS/2 2.x, UNIX/386, or Windows in Enhanced mode. The bug would cause the system to lock up and is a difficult issue to determine without having Intel actually look at the chip. Chips that passed the test, and all subsequent chips which were bug-free, were marked with a double-sigma symbol. 386DX chips that are not marked with these symbols may have not been tested by Intel and may be defective.

Chips having an 'IV' marking also don't have this bug.
