I've only tested this on 10.15.5.


Mount System Read/Write
Code:
sudo mount -uw /


Change language path to reflect your locale. en_GB.lproj


Create a backup and copy file to Desktop
Code:
sudo cp -Rf /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/en_GB.lproj/Processors.strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/en_GB.lproj/Processors.strings.backup

Code:
sudo cp -Rf /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/en_GB.lproj/Processors.strings ~/Desktop



Open file with your favorite text editor ( I used BBEdit ), Xcode won't work for this. Find the string About This Mac is currently displaying for you and change the value inside <string> </string>

For Example,
Code:
    <key>6-Core Intel Core i5</key>
    <string>AMD Ryzen 5 3600</string>



Copy the file back and check About This Mac.
Code:
sudo cp -Rf ~/Desktop/Processors.strings /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/AppleSystemInfo.framework/Versions/A/Resources/en_GB.lproj/

Bonjour shaneee,
En fait, il suffit simplement de remplacer 'En_GB.lproj' par "fr.lproj" dans les lignes de commande demandées plus haut pour que cela marche sans souci en Français. Merci shaneee

Hello everyone I have a small addition. If the 'sudo mount -uw /' command says 'not permitted' do the following steps:
1. Boot into Recovery Mode
2. Open utilities
3. Open terminal
4. Type in: csrutil disable
5. Reboot
now it should work

Olá pessoal, tenho uma pequena adição. Se o comando 'sudo mount -uw /' disser 'não permitido', execute as seguintes etapas:
1. Inicialize no modo de recuperação
2. Utilitários abertos
3. Terminal aberto
4. Digite: csrutil disable
5. Reinicialização
agora deve funcionar

AGORA TRABALHOU COM ESTE COMANDO QUE ME PASSOU Captura de Tela 2020-06-07 at 20.14.50.png csrutil

@Shaneee By chance could you post an un-edited Processors.strings? Before I read this post (and the one on the old forum) I had gone here and did the command. However it did not work; Instead of unknown it's now blank. I am hoping if I throw an original processors.strings back in and do the method outlined here, I could get things to work.

Which language/local?
