SubjectRe: AMD CPU misdetection?

A plain K6:
model : AMD-K6tm w/ multimedia extensions

A K6-2:
model name : AMD-K6(tm) 3D processor

A K6-3:
model name : AMD-K6(tm) 3D+ Processor

A K6-2+:
model name : AMD-K6(tm)-III Processor

This isn't done by linux; as far as I know these strings are on the chip
and set by AMD.

It tends to be confusing, but the value you get is proper for your chip.
