CPU-Z is a lightweight & useful freeware that gathers information on some of the main devices of your system such as: CPU, Mainboard, Memory, etc.. From version 1.51, CPU-Z includes an installer which offers several advantages in comparison to the stand-alone version:
- The installation creates program entries in the start menu and on the desktop.
- The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run. That makes the process more stable and slightly faster.
- Name and number.
- Core stepping and process.
- Core voltage.
- Internal and external clocks, clock multiplier.
- Supported instruction sets.
- Cache information.
- Vendor, model and revision.
- BIOS model and date.
- Chipset (northbridge and southbridge) and sensor.
- Graphic interface.
- Frequency and timings.
- Module(s) specification using SPD (Serial Presence Detect) : vendor, serial number, timings table.
