The Pentium Dual Core is a Core 2 Duo with less L2 cache. You don't have a fake CPU, you just have a program that can't tell which is which.

I still have a few older productivity apps that make even bigger mistakes. One of them seems to think that my Core 2 Duo and Pentium M machines are "Pentium III Xeon" based, and that my Opteron is an "Athlon w/ SSE".

The newer Pentium's are nothing more than Core2's with some of the cache disabled. The Core2 is nothing more than a optimized Core, the Core is nothing more than a Pentium M, the Pentium M is nothing more than a Pentium III that runs on a QDR bus (plus other changes). The Pentium III is nothing more than the Pentium II with SSE and on-die cache (except the first P-III's), the Pentium II is nothing more than the Pentium Pro with minor changes.

Other than the Pentium 4 line, Intel hasn't had an "new" CPU design since the Pentium Pro debuted in the early 90's. Even the Core "i" series is nothing more than a Core2 with the memory controller moved on die.
