    How to tell what processor I REALLY have in Dell XPS 13?

    RandySea

      I just purchased a Dell XPS 13 from Costco. The specs say the processor is

      Intel Core i7 - Quad HD+ (3200 x 1800)

      The Dell system utility says the same,  Intel Core I7-6560U @ 2.20 GHz, 2 Cores, 4 Logical Processors

       

      When I ran the Intel Processor ID Utility I downloaded and installed, it said I had i5-3320M

       

      When I ran the Intel Processor ID Utility online, it also said I had  i5-3320M.

       

      My question is, what processor do I really have?

       

      This isn't just curiosity. I have a buzzing noise that some people in a Dell support forum think needs an Intel driver update. I cannot even try driver updates without knowing what processor I have.

       

      The XPS 13 came with Intel graphics 540 driver v. 20.19.15.4454. When I got Windows 10 Home to update, it changed my driver to v. 20.19.15.4531, dated 9/29/16. It looks like Intel has released new drivers this month but I can't tell if any are appropriate for my XPS 13.
