Model 0x1F, like 1A and 1E is a Nehalem, not a Westmere.
This can be seen in the current SDM section 35.5.

For the historians, I believe that the name "Havendale" was originally
associated with that model# -- though I don't know if that binding persisted.

My NHM desktop is a 1A, though, not a 1F.
