This is really a curiosity question, not a problem in any real way.


I have noticed in the past that for certain CPUs/APUs it seems that every single utility identifies them correctly, while for others they do not.

The APU in this laptop is an A12-9700P.  Some are identifying it correctly while others are identifying it as an A10-9700.  Speccy also insists it's an A10.


What I find really interesting what CPU-Z did in version 1.78.  It's text identification is A10 while the logo it pulls up is A12.  That seems to have been corrected with version 1.83.


Just curious if anyone knows what is queried, and why different conclusions are reached?
