I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 16.04 and it says I have Intel processor when I have AMD64 and says I have Intel graphics when I have ATI Radeon. How do I correct this?

    Where does it "say" that? AMD64 is a platform that is correct for Intel and AMD CPUs. – Pilot6 Sep 8 '16 at 19:01

  • What exactly does it say? Please also edit your question and add there output of lscpu and lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D|Display' terminal commands. – Pilot6 Sep 8 '16 at 19:06

    Intel is a CPU. amd64 is an instruction set, which both AMD and Intel CPUs implement for 64-bit consumer grade CPUs. – dobey Sep 8 '16 at 19:36

Regardless of your certainty you clearly have an Intel CPU. This one to be precise.


You have an Intel CPU and an integrated Intel GPU.

There is no ATI Radeon card in your system.


Here is the link to the exact specifications to your laptop, which clearly states that it has an Intel CPU. I understand how this can get confusing sometimes especially when in linux it almost always says AMD when referencing a 64bit system.

    Not having the rep to comment does not mean you can comment in the answer section. Don't do that. It so happens that this post does answer the question as the answer is "You are wrong, you have an Intel CPU". – Mark Kirby Sep 8 '16 at 20:39
