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.

"Product download contains malware/crapware"

June 12, 2013  |  By a_guy_3

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.64

Pros

CPU-Z works great

Cons

Installing this exe will result in installing "mypcbackup" and some ASPCA shopping extension without your permission.

Summary

Find CPU-Z from a clean site, don't allow any odd/unauthorized software to be installed.

"Download link is broken. One star for CNET."

May 03, 2013  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.64

Pros

Never got the chance to find any. CNET's link is broken.

Cons

CNET's link,
http://software-files-a.cnet.com/u/ingest/cpu-z_1.64-32bits-en.exe

returns this message:

File not found."

(as typed)

Broken link, incorrectly parsed error message. CNET gets one star. CPU-Z, thanks to CNET's foul-up, gets no rating.

Summary

Tried the link with FireFox 19.0.2 (20.0.x versions have bugs) and Internet Explorer 10. Both browsers reported broken link with same error message.

If you think it's wrong to diss a program because of CNET's foul-up, good for you. I don't, is all.

"Provides pretty much all the info I need."

May 02, 2013  |  By speidi1

 |  Version: CPU-Z 1.64

Pros

Very easy to decipher all fields and data.

Cons

Install can be a bit of an endless loop. Required my intervention to get a shortcut where I wanted it.

Summary

Continues to be my one stop for the info provided.
