    Instead of trying to put the puzzle together for you. What Intel CPU do you have specifically? – Ramhound Sep 3 '16 at 19:31

    "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. – underscore_d Sep 3 '16 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. – Peter Sep 4 '16 at 11:45
