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.

"Excellent piece of software"

November 16, 2011  |  By Mergatroid Mania

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.58

Pros

Lets you view all the clocks and data for your system. For people who don't know what a computer clock is, don't bother.

Cons

CNET "download manager" sucks and will force me to go elsewhere for my any future downloads

Summary

CPUz is a must have for people interested in what their computer is doing and how it's operating.

Unfortunately, CNET seems to think we require a "downloader" that again wants to change your search page, home page and install another crap toolbar as does the actual CPUz installer. Luckily you can opt out, however because of this idiotic download mechanism I don't even know where the compressed file was stored on my computer (not the downloader, but the CPUz.zip or whatever they called it), what it was called, and if it was deleted after the installation. I will no longer be downloading any files from CNET.

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.58

Pros

Easy to figure out

Cons

Can't think of any

Summary

In a lump sum....it gave me all the information that I needed to know and then sum. If you're looking to upgrade your processor or almost anything else, this is a tool that will help....A LOT.

"Excellent information - excellent interface"

September 07, 2011  |  By JEfromCanada

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.58

Pros

- Very quick scan of computer before reporting results
- Provides detailed information about the CPU, Mainboard, Video Card and Memory

Cons

- None that I can see

Summary

Times were when I wanted to upgrade a computer's memory, I had to take the old chips with me to the store to ensure I got compatible memory. Now, I can get an accurate readout of the size, type, and memory channel information without breaking open the case. That alone makes this utility worthy of my toolkit. However, it also has excellent information about the CPU, Video card, and Mainboard. I can't believe it's taken me this long to find this product!
