This.

 

The specification is the brand string read directly from the CPU while the other is a LUT in CPU-Z software.

 

@ScubaSteve404 Try HWiNFO to see if any different.

my grand parens have a 2 in 1 lapop with an i3 4010y and when i look in CPU-Z it says its an i5 4250u but it says i3 4010y in he specification box, does this mean its an i5 that ddin't quite make the mark to be an i5 but wasn't tossed or is this a glitch in CPU-Z? i know its possible that its an i5 that was binned as an i3 4010y but idk how CPU-Z ids the chip

very likely thats what happened.

 

similar story:

a long time back, when ryzen was first launched, somebody got a ryzen 1300 with 8 cores.

Also that i5 and your i3 are quite similar. i5 just has a boost clock while the i3 doesn't.
