Why does HWinfo say that my b550 board has a x570 chipset?

I have a lot of respect for the HWinfo team offering what they do for free, but IMO they try to do too much and as I result I regularly see threads asking about weird temperatures, voltages, or RAM timings that have been erroneously reported by HWinfo. I got annoyed with its bugs and outdated readings about a decade ago and switched to CPU-Z which hasn't let me down yet, though it admittedly tries to do a lot less than HWinfo.

You can't argue with the low, low price of "free" but HWinfo is, and I quote, "more info than you'll ever need".
I'm happy with just the info I do need; ideally correct info, too ;)
