Is noopept an AMPAkine, a racetam, both or neither?

Opinions?

Noopept is generally lumped along with the rest of the racetams, but since it doesn't have the 2-oxo1-pyrollidine structure it's TECHNICALLY not a racetam though it works on most of the same mechanisms as piracetam. Though piracetam and aniracetam are primarily considered cholinergics they and noopept also have some weak to moderate AMPA activity.

What do you guys think, is noopept a racetam or just a cholinergic with moderate AMPAkine activity and similar mechanisms of action?
