Ryzen 5 1600AF reading as 14nm?

I bought a Ryzen 5 1600 with the AMD part number: YD1600BBAFBOX, which AMD quotes on their site as being a 12nm CPU:


" NOTE: The specifications below reflect the Ryzen 5 1600 as originally launched. It has since been refreshed to OPN# YD1600BBAFBOX, which has identical specifications except that it is made on the 12nm manufacturing process, and features the low-profile Wraith Stealth cooler. "


Yet when I open CPU-Z it is reading as: "Technology: 14nm".

Could CPU-Z be reading wrong? Or were some of the YD1600BBAFBOX CPUs built on the 14nm process? Or could AMD or the supplier have mislabelled the CPU?


Hoping someone out there might have some insight.
