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.
