Do I have a fake Intel processor?

So first off I would like to note I purchased this computer pre-built in around 2015 of june (i think). Anyways today I was checking my drivers via windows and saw that it was signed as GenuineIntel (https://gyazo.com/cdf83cad148a9045059862a3b2459dc5) that seemed a little suspicious, so I looked it up and couldn't get a clear answer. Little confused and would appreciate a clear answer.

Download and install Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool. Run the test.

Hello aw0001, 

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

 

You can also use the Warranty Center to check the product warranty coverage. If the website locates the model of your processor along with the estimated warranty expiration date, it means that it is a valid Intel® Core™ i7-6700K Processor.

1. Go to Warranty Information 

2. Under product type, select processor.

3. In the "FPO Number" field, please type the Batch number located on the white sticker on the box.

4. In "ATPO Serial Number" please type the S/N located on the same white sticker.

5. Click on "Check Products"

 

Please don't share the FPO/ATPO combination in this thread.

Please let me know how it goes.
