CPU-Z is a FREE application that collects information of some basic components of your system. It’s interface is very simple to operate and information’s provided are simple to understand.
It provides information on components like:
In this section there will be information displayed regarding the name, number and every detail of the processor.It supports following processors: Intel’s latest i486,
Pentium, Pentium MMX, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Celeron (P2/P3/P4/PM), Pentium!!!, Pentium !!!-M, Pentium 4, Pentium 4-M, Pentium M, Xeon (P2/P3/P4), Pentium D, Pentium XE, Core Solo, Core Duo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme;
For AMD there are the Am5×86, K5, K6, K6-2, K6-III, K6-2+, K6-III+, Athlon (4, XP, MP), Duron, Sempron (K7/K, Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, Turion, Opteron, Athlon FX.
Transmeta’s Cruso TM3200, TM5400, TM5500, TM5600, TM5800 are also supported by the application, as well as VIA’s C3 (Samuel, Samuel2, Ezra, Ezra-T, Nehemiah), C7 and C7-M.
This section gives details about the following: manufacturer, model, chipset, sensor, southbridge, BIOS (brand, version and date), graphic interface (version, Link Width and side band).
Contains general information about physical memory of the system.
This section provides some basic information about your graphics card. The name of manufacturer, if you have more than one graphics card installed then the one you want to analyze can be selected by its name. performance level indicates the level for which you want to analyze(2D Desktop, 3D Applications). Information provided here is devided in three sections. GPU, Cocks, Memory.
GPU includes Name, code name, Revision and technology. Clocks shows frequencies at which Core, Shader and Memory clocks operate for different performance level. Memory shows the amount of physical memory present in the card, Memory type and it’s Bus Width.
This section contains information about the RAM sticks installed in different slots and their detailed timing tables.
The Cache section displays the L1 data cache (with size and descriptor), L1 Instruction Cache and L2 Cache.
The supported chipsets are from Intel, VIA, nVidia, ATi, AMD and SiS. The Intel chipsets are i430TX, i440LX, i440FX, i440BX/ZX, i810/E, i815/E/EP/EM, i840, i845, i845E, i845G, i850/E, i845PE/GE, E7205 (Granite Bay), E7500, E7520, i852, i855, i865P/PE/G, i875P, i915P/G, i915PM/GM, i925X/XE, i945P/PL/G/GZ, i945PM/GM/GT, i955X/XE, P965, Q965, G965, i975X.
For VIA there are the Apollo VP3, Apollo Pro, Apollo Pro +, Apollo Pro 266, KX133, KT133(&A), KT266(&A), KT400(&A), KT600, P4X266(&A), PT880, PT880 Pro, K8T800, K8T890, K8T900 devices.
nVidia is present with nForce, nForce2, nForce3, nForce4, nForce4 SLI Intel Edition, GeForce 6100/6150 (nForce 410/430), nForce 590. ATi’s representatives are RS350, RS400, RS480/RX480, RS482, RD580/RX580, RS600/RD600, RS690, RS700.
AMD and SiS have fewer chipsets supported by the software thus, from the former only the AM-751, AM-761, AM-762 (760MP) while the latter is a bit heavy and the software will provide support for 645, 645DX, 648, 648FX, 649, 655FX, 655TX, 656, 735, 756, 761GX, 760, 760GX, 755, 755FX, 741, 741GX.
