Mac How To: Find Your Mac’s Processor/CPU Model Number

On macOS, going to the System Profiler doesn’t give you the exact model number of your CPU, rather it just gives you the clock speed and the CPU branding (e.g; Intel Core i7).

You can, however, use Terminal to find the exact model number of your CPU. Just open up Terminal (Applications > Utilities > Terminal or use Spotlight to search for it) and run the following command:

sysctl -n machdep.cpu.brand_string
