yes, I have seen how it is possible that AMD is recognized as ATOM processor??
I find it odd that this is also the 1 core 3 thread???
x3 720 and not x4 9xx !?
bizarre , biizarre
read the pdf file or the readme file , the AMD cpuid are faking

here is the Readme-file:
CPUID manipulation program for AMD processors by Andrey Lutsenko
Uses AMD virtualization. Does not work on Intel processors.
Note: I have not tested these programs, and I am providing them without responsibility.
Description in Russian:
RED_PILL.exe -- Fully functional Hyperdriver, uses 1 core for itself. Starts OS from next boot device after C:. XAP emulation is off by default. Run in DOS real mode.
Test_CPU.exe -- Fast Hyperdriver without register events and scan, but can edit and dump memory, and all cores are available. May be incorrectly shown in hyperagent state. Run in DOS real mode.
FreeEye.exe -- Windows hyperagent (eng + rus). Load it and turn on XAP emulation in "Dump event" panel. Then you can also change XAP-area in memory editor. CPUID changes should take effect instantly.
FreeEye.rar -- Hyperagent source (english version only) with comments.
CPUID-Atom.XAP -- CPUID substitute file example for Intel Atom. To load it in the Hyperdriver
it must be renamed to CPUID.XAP and placed in C:\ (FAT32 only). Can be edited with a HEX
editor as a set of 64 16-byte lines (register quads) for CPUID pages 0-31 and 80..0-80..31 .
CPUID-Core2.XAP -- CPUID substitute file example for Intel Core 2.
XAPCPUID.exe -- XAP-file maker, makes C:/CPUID.XAP file with current CPU data. Runs under DOS.
How to get the computer into real mode DOS:
Method 1: Booting from Windows 98 hard disk.
Install the Windows 98 boot system files on a hard disk and boot the
computer from this hard disk. It is not necessary to install the entire
Windows system on the hard disk. If the hard disk has the entire Windows
system installed then press F8 during boot and select "safe mode command
prompt only" to avoid getting into Windows mode.
Method 2: Booting from a floppy disk.
The floppy disk has to be formatted on a computer with one of these
operating systems: DOS, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 SE,
Windows ME or Windows XP. It is not possible to make a bootable floppy
disk on Windows 2000 or Windows NT, Vista or Windows 7. (The computer
you are formatting the floppy disk on does not have to be the same
computer as the one you want to test).
Right-click on Floppy (A:), select "Format", and select "Copy
system files" or "Create an MS-DOS startup disk".
After the floppy disk has been made bootable, you have to copy all files
needed for the test to the floppy disk. You may have
to modify the BIOS setup in order to allow booting from a floppy disk.
Method 3: Booting from a USB memory stick.
Some brands of USB sticks can be made bootable, but not all.
Not all computers can boot from a USB stick, but many computers with
a relatively new BIOS can. You may have to modify the BIOS setup in
order to allow booting from a USB device. Follow the instructions that
come with the USB stick for how to make it bootable. The USB stick has
to be formatted on a computer with Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP
(not Windows 2000 or NT or Vista or Win7). After the USB stick
has been made bootable, you have to copy all files needed for the test
to the USB stick.
Whatever method you are using for getting into real mode DOS, make sure
you don't have EMM386 or any other virtual memory manager installed in
config.sys. (HIMEM.SYS may be OK).
