I just built a new pc with an I9 processor on a ASUS Prime X-299-A II. I am trying to get into overclocking and how it works. Well when I went through the Devices I noticed this....well i could not attach a screenshot. idk why? There are a bunch of i7 devices but no i9. I know its an i9 i put it in myself and cpu-z reads correctly. I am worried this is affecting my performance.

What cpu did you think you installed and what cpu does it say you have.

Those don't identify your cpu. Those are Xeon P family OR Core i7 (that's the / ) chipset drivers.

It's like Windows 10 still uses DOS commands (CMD or CMD Admin), doesn't mean it's DOS based. Many drivers are similar, 1 driver covers many cpus Intel just doesn't bother changing the names for every cpu considering its the same driver for all.

That is what I figured in my research on this. Thanks for the verification. It just seems to lag sometimes and for brand new and just put together idk.
