Hi Chmouel,

That's the result of an 'old' dmidecode binary.  Support for correctly identifying some of the newer AMD and Intel stuff (part of SMBIOS 2.5) is not yet in the mainstream dmidecode AFAIK.

Try the dmidecode from here: http://www.linofee.org/~jel/develop/prtdiag.  It should ID your dual-core AMD correctly.

Cheers,

-chris
