I got this on my old 604 too. I think it's because the emulated 68K chip in the PowerPC is based on either the 68020 or 68040.

Either that, or ASP has no clue what chip it is and is just resorting to the first string in some internal table. Since your version of ASP is probably >= 8.0, and the slowest chip supported was a 68LC040, that's probably what is the first element in the list.

Probably looks like {68LC040, 68040, PowerPC 601, PowerPC 603...} and your CPU isn't "known" to your version of ASP since it's outside of the list. That's my guess.
