CPU-Z (Display your computer configuration)

CPU-Z is a freeware that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system. I know most of computer users don’t know anything about their computer configurations. This is my personal experience. Even lot of my friends doesn’t have any idea about the Processor, Rams and mother board that they have on their computer. They just buy a computer that’s looks nice to them.

So most of the time when they can't run an application or Game they call me to check it. Most of the time, it's related to their system configuration. The application they try to run requires more system requirements than they have on their computers. So if they can tell me their system configuration information, for example CPU type and Speed, amount of ram they have, it will be really easy for me to determine the problem even through the phone. That might save lot of time for me.

CPU-Z is a small executable file which display following information about your computer. The best thing is there is no installation. You just have to run the file.


Name and number.
Core stepping and process.
Core voltage.
Internal and external clocks, clock multiplier.
Supported instructions sets.
Cache information.


Vendor, model and revision.
BIOS model and date.
Chipset (Northbridge and south bridge) and sensor.
Graphic interface.


Frequency and timings.
Module(s) specification using SPD (Serial Presence Detect) : vendor, serial
number, timings table.
