Editors' Review

+

CPU-Z yields an impressive data sheet of a computer system's functions and operations. By cutting out a lot of technical and manual searching, this handy freeware generates a list of information that computer lovers will find very helpful.

We had no trouble operating the program's interface since it had practically no command icons. The program is basically like reading a report, though one rich in information. Casual computer users probably won't get much from CPU-Z, since the information it presents is heavily data oriented. However, technophiles will love its attention to detail. The interface features seven tabs that catalog everything from your motherboard's chipset and manufacturer to your clock's technical details. In between, we were able to quickly find information about our PC's memory, cache, graphics, and SPD. CPU-Z lays everything out in easy-to-read tables full of highly technical terms and numbers. Seeking this information out through traditional methods would have taken much longer. The program, unfortunately, doesn't have any special features, though some accompanying charts and graphs would have been nice. Overall, this tool yields an impressive collection of raw data in an easy-to-ready format that makes it easy to use, too.

CPU-Z is freeware. Though those not well versed in technology may be turned off by all that data, computer lovers will discover a lot about their PCs. For them, CPU-Z is a must.
