It's actually an i7 dreaming that it's an i3 dreaming that it's an i7. Processption.

Speccy is getting confused due to the similarities. That or Intel made some error, or turned a batch of i7 into i3.

See what GPU-z says about it and what cache you have.

DAMN TYPOS!!

I meant CPU-z [...which would make more sense since the issue is what CPU you got]

...sorry, I just woke up and still working on restoring my caffeine levels.

lol CPU-Z says the Cache is only 3Mb, so i guess its just an issue with Speccy thats making it think my processor is an i7
