    Instead of trying to put the puzzle together for you. What Intel CPU do you have specifically?

    "I got this output" from where? surely that wasn't all it told you, so where's the rest of the info? and did you try to use a search engine first to find out what the unfamiliar words mean? this is not a good question. Sep 3, 2016 at 21:23

The output is the technical version of the processor.
Intel 64 - Indicates it is a 64-bit processor
Family 6 - Not entirely sure what constitutes a family for Intel (Possible like the Core family. Core i7, Core 2, etc)
Model 15 - CPU Model number (6000 Series)
Stepping 13 - Revision number. A minor change to the CPU model.

A quick google search of the version information pointed me to Wikipedia which indicates it is a Core 2 Duo T5470.
You would get a much easier to read CPU version by using 'name' instead of 'caption'. Examples:
CPU caption on my machine - Intel64 Family 6 Model 94 Stepping 3
CPU name - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz

  • Family 6 is probably referring to the 6-series chipsets from Intel.
