Why is PC Health check showing my processor is not compatible with Windows 11 even if it is in the list of compatible processors?

My windows 10pro 22H2 has the Intel i5 7500 processor. In the list of windows 11 compatible processors, this processor is listed. PC health check says my processor is not compatible even though Microsoft says it is. Why is this?
