Speccy identified my CPU wrong

Recommended Posts

I just built my first PC. It has an Intel Core i7-9700K and Speccy identified it as Intel Core i7 7700  what's up with that?

maybe Speccy is simply passing on what is in the firmware.

start an elevate command prompt and type in wmic cpu list brief and see what it thinks your CPU is.

Using the command Prompt and : "wmic cpu list brief" show my cpu is a 9700K

I tried Speccy again and it still show Intel Core i7 7700 @ 3.60GHz 25 °C Kaby Lake 14nm Technology

Anyone else have any ideas???

They probably just need to update Speccy. At least there's a way built into Windows to get the correct detection to verify what you purchased.

It does not give people confidence in the Speccy software if it has to be updated each time a new CPU or product is on the market.

I know what I put into my build and it's an i7-7900K and not an i7- 7700 so what else can I say?

exactly the same problem

i installed i7 9700k 

it showed i7 7700k 

though it shows the corect core number 8 core ( 7700 got 6 core only)

compared CPU-Z and  task manager and "dxdiag"-> all shows up i7 9700k .

probably speecy bug. 

i hope iget it right because it is my first built pc.
