Most people only know the brand of the computer they use but are not conversant with the type and capabilities of the processor that the computer uses. Yet, the type and capacity of your computer processor plays a vital role in system performance and even determines the type of application your computer can run without hassles. Intel, the leading manufacturer of computer processors, developed this application to help users identify Intel-based processors and display vital information about it.
After launching the program, it swings into action to access the Intel processor installed on the computer and then displays detailed information about it. The program displays the CPU frequency, the type of CPU, and the CPU ID data. The program displays sets of results which are the reported value and the expected value. The reported value is the current operating speed of the processor after testing, while the expected value refers to the speed claimed by the manufacturer after testing.
This program allows you to know the technology that your processor supports such as hyperthreading, design architecture (64 or 32 bit), Advanced Vector Architecture, the family, the model, steppings, and revision, among many other processor features.
Intel Processor Identification Utility is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in system info category and is available to all software users as a free download.
