CPU info, is it accurate?

I just installed Redhat 8 on my new computer. Originally it had an AMD 2000+ processor, but I requested upgrade to AMD 2700+.
When I checked /etc/cpuinfo I found the processor type is AMD 1500+ with 1300 MHz only. Is this information accurate?

Check your BIOS when you boot to make sure you have your proc at the right settings. A lot of the times company's send a motherboard and have it defaulted to a lower clock speed on the processor. My buddy had his 2000 running at 1.2 ghz and didn't even know it. Just check your BIOS screen when you boot up to see what it says you have. If you have a weird BIOS and it doesn't show you any info, hit the key that will make you enter your BIOS (usually delete) and look in there to change it.
