on most of the PC, during boot up, we can press Del to go to softmenu, we can see the type of the processor there (no utility required)

ttlyons,
Depending on your BIOS, you may be able to see the processor info displayed during the POST. The trick is to "Pause" the operation long enough to see it. When the computer starts its boot process, it shows (if it does show the process, HP's tend not to show the boot process) the RAM check and the IDE channels. After this, the screen may change and flash another information screen. If it does this do the following.
When the IDE channels are being checked, hold the "Shift" key.As soon as the screen changes, hit the "Pause/Break" key. (It's usually above the "Page Up" key)
This should stop the boot process and give you the info your looking for. To continue the boot process, hit the "Enter" key.
Again, this is dependent on the BIOS you have and the computer manufacturer. You did not give us that info, therefore, we can only guess at possible solutions.
I hope this helps. :)
