cpu-z-processor 1. Provides in-depth information of your computer hardware : CPU-Z provides in-depth information about your computer’s hardware.

Overall Review & Views :

CPU-Z is a small and light utility which provides lots and lots of information about your computer’s hardware. It’s a utility which provides so much information that as a new computer user you may find it useless too. All in all, its a great utility for advanced computer users but equally important for those who are starting to use the computer (you get a chance of learning more about computer hardware). What do you think about this utility, have you ever used anything like this ?

    It’s a good utility. It adds so much more as far as stats when you compare it with you “old-fashioned” NFO viewer. It gives accurate stats on how much memory you have installed (up to the exact mb), correct processor speed, and various tabs necessary to track how much of a desktop or laptops resources are being used per each application or service being run. The reason why this is vital stems from any hang-ups one may experience while using their desktop or laptop. Look at this in accordance to the calculater. Even Microsoft developed and released a Microsoft “Plus” Calculator, so everything eventually needs an upgrade.
